Miami-Dade County missed out on Amazon.com’s HQ2, but it could gain a new delivery station for the e-commerce giant.
Prologis filed a pre-application with county officials on March 20 to modify its warehouse at 6703 N.W. Seventh Street in a plan titled “Amazon Delivery Station.” Developers file pre-applications so they can receive feedback from county staff before submitting official applications.
The property is just south of Miami International Airport near State Road 836/Dolphin Expressway.
Built in 1996, the warehouse totals 153,296 square feet. The changes would include interior modifications for e-commerce logistics, reconfiguring the parking layout, and installing covers over the loading area to protect delivery vehicles from the elements. It would have 44 van loading spaces and eight truck loading spaces. There would be 171 parking spaces for Amazon employees.
Christopher Warshaw of CESO, which represents Prologis in the application, didn’t respond to a request for comment. Officials with Amazon couldn’t be reached for comment.
Amazon uses delivery stations to speed up the fulfillment of customer orders.
