Seefried Breaks Ground on 2.8 MSF Amazon Fulfillment Center in Tallahassee
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. — Seefried Industrial Properties has broken ground on a 2.8 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Tallahassee. The developer did not disclose the tenant, but the Tallahassee Democrat reported that the occupant will be Amazon.
Dubbed “Project Mango,” the development will be situated on 118 acres near the Mahan Drive and I-10 interchange. Seefried says that the four-story project is record-breaking in terms of its size and functionality, and that it will feature cutting-edge material handling and product retrieval systems. Equipped with advanced robotics technology, the property will assist in efficient package delivery.
The facility will feature 49 dock doors, 1,250 car parking spaces, 265 trailer spaces and 100,000 square feet of office and break room space.
The fulfillment center is expected to generate 1,346 full-time jobs and an economic impact of $451 million, according to Seefried. The Conlan Co. is serving as general contractor. Completion is slated for the fourth quarter of 2022.
Amazon also recently unveiled plans for a new fulfillment center in Port St. Lucie, Fla., along with five new delivery stations in the Sunshine State. The e-commerce giant currently operates more than 50 sites in Florida that support customer fulfillment and delivery operations.
Atlanta-based Seefried is a privately owned firm that specializes in the development, leasing and management of industrial real estate in core markets across the U.S.
