Amazon plans to open a delivery station out at the Birmingham Food Terminal across from Niki’s West at 2501 3rd Place West, according to the Birmingham Business Journal.
This would be Amazon’s third delivery station slated in the Birmingham area since they opened their Bessemer Fulfillment Center.
We reported on the other two developments back in 2020—Project Magic, which is located at the former Century Plaza Mall site and Project Church in Bessemer.
If you have driven on Crestwood Boulevard lately, you have likely seen the dismantling of Century Plaza. Amazon’s Project Magic will replace the iconic mall with a 200,000 square foot logistics center & distribution hub. The new state of the art facility which is design for last mile delivery service will bring over 300 new jobs to the area.
Similarly, Project Church, a 278,800 square foot sortation facility is slated to be built on a 47-acre property near the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Bessemer.
There are not too many good things you can say about 2020, but the Magic City did establish itself as an emerging logistics and distribution hub giant.
Along with Amazon, new distribution centers were announced by FedEx, Lowe’s and Buffalo Rock.
