Info above says 4 local Amazon facilities are rumored to be in the overall Amazon plans for CLE.

The Euclid mall spot would appear to be a full Amazon warehouse/fulfillment center (not sure if large or small package.. they sometimes build both in an area... to handle different types of products). This is an unusual urban location for an Amazon FC (my company ships to dozens of them, most rural...)

The recently opened Twinsburg facility is a sortation center that merely sorts orders sent from other Amazon facilities down to the post office closest to delivery address.

The smaller, already operating Euclid facility is a delivery center, from which packages from other Amazon locations are sent directly to consumers via couriers, etc

The 4th facility rumored is quite possibly a Prime Now hub from which items could be delivered to consumers within hours of order.

Planning and Zoning Commission approved (4-0, one member absent) to recommend the rezoning of Euclid Square Mall properties.
Next up, Council for three readings and Architectural Review Board

Meeting last night with the Architectural Review Board: schematic approval given



Euclid fulfillment center project - possibly Amazon - on dead mall site gets design approval

The massive industrial project slated to replace Euclid Square Mall won design approval late Tuesday. And though the developer wouldn't identify the tenant, several clues - the size, layout, function and color scheme - point to Amazon.

Euclid's Architectural Review Board approved schematic plans for a huge fulfillment center that will supplant the dead mall, which closed last year. The building will occupy a 650,000-square-foot footprint and, with two levels of robotic storage tucked above the main floor, contain 1.7 million square feet of floor space.

Plans also call for 53 truck docks and parking for 200 trailers and nearly 1,800 cars.

Executives with Seefried Industrial Properties, the developer, won't say who needs that much space. And during an hour-long design discussion, review board members didn't ask about the building's intended occupant.

But Seefried, based in Atlanta, is the same developer behind an Amazon fulfillment center being constructed on the former site of Randall Park Mall, a 20-mile drive from Euclid. And documents submitted to Euclid's planning department show a tan-and-brown building with orangey-gold accents - an orangey-gold that looks a lot like one of Amazon's signature colors.

A spokeswoman for the Seattle-based e-commerce giant wouldn't confirm anything Wednesday morning. "Amazon has a practice of not commenting on speculation," she said.

Seefried has a deal to buy the 68-acre Euclid site, which includes the shuttered mall and freestanding buildings on its fringes. The purchases, from multiple owners, could take place within 30 days, said David Riefe, the developer's senior vice president for the Midwest.

My source close to Amazon says this will be a delivery station, much smaller than the fulfillment center in North Randall.

I'm told the smaller Amazon delivery station you note is already operating in Euclid (I actually received a shipment from it last week per the Amazon tracking info provided to me..) - though there has been little press on its existence. This new facility is a full blown fulfillment center that's actually a bit larger than North Randall, depending on how you count the square footage.

That's planned for across 260th in Bluestone Business Park (about 80,000 square feet).  The size of the mall site facility as suggested by the renderings present to the Architectural Review Board suggest a facility with a 650,000 square foot footprint and 1.7 million total square feet of space when storage is factored in.  That's more in line with a Small Sortable Fulfillment Center, which typically range from 600,000 to 1.2 million square feet.

Here's a link to the Crain's article concerning the delivery station:

It's kind of interesting that they keep building on dead mall sites, seeing as online shopping had a large part in killing the malls in the first place.

The operation currently located on Bluestone Boulevard is indeed a fully operating small delivery facility using the sorting code of CLE1 It uses an app where "private contractors" (people with a car) can pick up 20-40 packages and deliver them over a 3-4 hour time period typically all within the same zip code. It's been in operation since this past spring.


Whatever operation will happen on the mall site is listed on the various Planning and Zoning Commission and Architectural Review Board applications as a "fulfillment center".




That is all

Dang,  this is pretty huge news - I've wanted this for years since I first heard of it. I wonder when we will get new delivery options for us Prime members?
