Amazon is Making a 84,5 Million Dollar Move in Broward!
NW 44th St and Hiatus Road, Sunrise
Amazon.com has secured 133.3 acres to build a major fulfillment center in Sunrise.
Services LLC, in care of Seattle-based Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), bought the property for $84.51 million. The sellers were Section 18 LLC, managed by Curtis Deem, and the trusts of Martha Cotton Deem Hook and Sara Louise Deem Gilbert. The property is on the west side of Hiatus Road, between Northwest 44th Street and Northwest 50th Street.
The Deem family has owned the vacant property since the 1970s. Nearby development over the years has made this a busy area of Broward County, near the Sawgrass Mills mall and the Sawgrass Expressway.
Earlier this year, Amazon.com filed plans to develop the property with an 823,969-square-foot warehouse, which would include 29,888 square feet of office space. It would be 84 feet tall, allowing for high stacking of goods using Amazon’s robotic systems.
It would have 64 loading docks, 203 trailer parking stalls, and 1,800 car parking spaces. There would be 10 electric vehicle charging stations, which would support small electric trucks that would move trailers around the property.
This is part of Amazon’s growth with new delivery locations in South Florida, including in Opa-locka, Riviera Beach, Pompano Beach, Homestead, Coral Springs, West Palm Beach and northern Palm Beach County.
