Amazon has purchased a 65-acre site in Marana where a distribution facility is being developed, creating hundreds of new jobs.
Documents from the Pima County Recorder’s Office show that Amazon.com Services LLC paid $7.1 million for the currently vacant site on the northeast corner of Ina and Silverbell roads. The seller was Shetland Properties Co. LLC.
Known as the Silverbell Gateway Distribution Center, plans for the site, that were submitted to the Town of Marana, call for a 45-foot-tall, 220,822-square-foot building with parking for 484 employee vehicles, and more than 1,200 spaces for delivery vans.
