Amazon’s Project Flash: 1 Million Square Foot Warehouse Now Being Built In Dade, Among Their Biggest

Amazon has commenced work on their biggest facility in the Miami area, and one of their biggest nationwide.

The new facility is being built under the code name Project Flash, according to a utilities deal completed with the county in November.

The water and sewer agreement states that Amazon is building 1,012,289 square feet of warehouse.

Amazon purchased the 77 acre property from Miami-Dade County for just $22 million. Commissioners approved the deal in July, saying it was the appraised value of the land.

As part of the deal, Amazon must create 325 full time jobs over a 20 year period, with an average annual salary of $32,000, or $15 an hour.

Amazon’s current biggest facility in Miami is at Opa Locka – also built on land acquired from the county.

The Opa Locka facility is 855,000 square feet.

That means that right now a new born will have the possibility of getting a job earning $15 an hour at this Amazon facility when he or she turns 20 yrs old.

Is the Innovation District still happening? Can we still get some Amazon offices there? NYC lost the deal but in the end they are still getting a ton of new offices from Amazon. What about us?

Very few compared to how many will be destroyed from competing with online sales.

Or, put another way, small old-fashion shopkeepers no longer have a captive audience to rip off anymore.

I don’t care how many so called long term benefits this allegedly will bring to the county, they should have leased the land to them not sell it for under market value.. Here we go again our elected officials screwing all of its residents in the A** Amazon will finish off a lot more retail businesses in these 20 years.

Ahhh…good old Capitalism. Everyone is for free markets and tech until they are caught on the wrong side….nobody has mentioned here that amazon will be fully automated with robots and A.I. … look at their new employee free stores. Law makers are already discussing a universal income. dont worry ppl, there is always an equilibrium. This is why we vote. and most say the system doesnt work. well in my opinion its bc only 30% of Americans vote (on avg)
