Amazon Fulfillment Center Coming to Euclid
Amazon has announced it will build a new 650,000 square foot fulfillment center at the former Euclid Square Mall site bringing 1000 new jobs. The City of Euclid has been working with Seefried Industrial Properties, Amazon and many regional economic development partners since March to make this project happen. “We are thrilled to welcome Amazon and Seefried Industrial Properties to the City of Euclid,” said City of Euclid Mayor Kirsten Holzheimer Gail. “The Euclid Square Mall site has been a prime target of our redevelopment efforts. While some saw a vacant mall, we saw an opportunity for growth and development. This project is a fantastic addition to the investment we are seeing in our industrial corridor and will provide valuable employment opportunities for our residents.”
This project would not have happened without the leadership, professionalism and tenacity of Planning and Development Director Jonathan Holody and the whole team of Directors and staff who contributed in many important ways. It was a true team effort as the City worked with local and regional economic development partners including Greater Cleveland Partnership, Team NEO, Jobs Ohio, Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Department of Transportation, and Euclid City Council to make this transformative project a reality. Euclid City Council approved the rezoning of the property from retail to industrial to allow for this development.
The Euclid fulfillment center will be the fifth facility in Ohio, as Amazon has recently announced upcoming centers in North Randall and Monroe and currently operates center in Etna and Obetz. Amazon Associates at this fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship customer items such as electronics, books, housewares and toys. Full-time employees at Amazon receive competitive hourly wages and a comprehensive benefits package, including healthcare, 401(k) and company stock awards starting on day one. Demolition is scheduled to take place this fall and new construction will begin in the spring of 2018.
