Amazon chooses Tulsa again for new merchandise sorting center
7 May 2021
E-commerce behemoth Amazon is enlarging its presence in Tulsa.
Amazon plans to build a 270,000-square-foot operations facility that will create at least 200 full- and part-time jobs, a company spokesman said Wednesday. Located on Mingo Road between 36th Street North and Apache Boulevard, the warehouse distribution and sorting center is expected to be completed later this year.
The Tulsa World reported last week that city planning and building records showed that a roughly 270,000-square-foot distribution center had been proposed on land just east of Tulsa International Airport. The city declined at the time to provide specifics about the project, including what business was building it, and a board member for the Tulsa Airports Improvement Trust, which owns the project land, said a nondisclosure agreement prevented it from discussing particulars until a lease was approved.
