Amazon is hungry for so-called fulfillment centers, and it just found another super enormous one in Stockton.

The e-commerce behemoth inked a lease for CT Realty’s 1.1-million-square-foot facility in NorCal Logistics Center.

That’s even big for Amazon, and will likely rank as one of its largest fulfillment centers in the country.

The largest appears to be a 1.2-million-square-foot giant in Phoenix, although Newport Beach-based CT Realty marketing brochures say the Stockton warehouse is expandable up to 2 million square feet.

The building measures 2,147 feet by 520 feet and sits on 62 acres. Ceilings are over 36 feet high and there are 250 loading dock doors. There’s also parking for 467 vehicles and 269 trailer parking spaces.

The huge warehouse is located at 4532 Newcastle Road, part of CT Realty’s first phase of development of the NorCal Logistics Center. The project is 342 acres and will include 4.4-million square feet of distribution, manufacturing, and other warehouse space. CT sold the two other buildings as part of Phase I — totaling 575,100 square feet — to Prologis.

It’s the second time Amazon has leased with CT Realty. Earlier this year, Amazon signed for a nearly 400,000-square-foot warehouse in Dallas, partially owned by CT Realty.

Developers and municipal officials around the country have their eyes fixed on Amazon as it searches for a place to build a $5 billion second headquarters dubbed HQ2. Amazon started its search a year ago and narrowed finalist cities from several dozen to 20 in January.

Meanwhile, Amazon is making moves in Los Angeles. Amazon will lease all of Hackman Capital Partners’ 75,000-square-foot Culver Steps project in Culver City.
