Amazon to open Fresno fulfillment center, create 2,500 jobs

Amazon.com today announced plans to open a fulfillment center in Fresno that will employ up to 2,500 people.

The 855,000 square-foot facility will be located in a burgeoning business zone at Orange and Central avenues — about 1,000 acres that is being primed for e-commerce and data center jobs, said Mayor Lee Brand in an interview. Brand said there has been a lot of behind-the-scenes work getting the $100 million project permitted, and he expects a groundbreaking within 30 days, and about one year to build the center — putting an opening in the second half of 2018.
