Amazon to build 2nd Kenosha distribution centerDecember 17, 2013 @ 12:19 pm
KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Amazon.com Inc. plans to develop a second distribution center in Kenosha.
The $62 million project would add around 575 full- and part-time jobs.
Zohrab Khaligian of Kenosha's Community Development Department said Tuesday a development firm hired by the Seattle-based online retailer has filed a proposal with city officials.
Khaligian tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ( http://bit.ly/19aWv1D) the 500,000-square-foot facility would be built in conjunction with a 1 million-square-foot distribution center approved in October by Kenosha's Common Council.
The first distribution and order fulfillment center has an estimated cost of more than $200 million. That center is expected to have around 1,100 jobs by 2015.
