Amazon has a $60 million deal in the works for a 40-acre distribution center in Pullman, according to a new report.

Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) confirmed the e-commerce giant has expressed interest in building a 150,000-square-foot warehouse on the former Ryerson Steel property, bringing hundreds of jobs to Beale’s district. About 500 construction jobs and “200 to 300” permanent jobs to be exact, according to Beale.

If it goes through. the e-commerce giant would deepen its already firm position in Chicago. The news, first reported by Crain’s, comes just weeks after Amazon inked a massive lease at Melrose Park. Additionally, Amazon already has a massive 237,000 square foot facility about 15 miles north of Chicago in Skokie, Illinois.

“We could not be happier,” Beale told Crain’s. “It underscores that Pullman is rapidly becoming the new green industry/transit logistics and distribution center of Chicago.”

The $60 million deal would seek a county property tax abatement to be approved by the City Council. [Crain’s] — Jacqueline Flynn
