A proposed, $198 million fulfillment center in Opa-Locka would invest $51 million into real estate, expected to be built by Amazon.

A company that the South Florida Business Journal said could be Amazon.com applied for $1.5 million in county and state job incentives to build the high-tech facility in Opa-Locka. “Project Sol” would also invest $147 million in personal property and equipment for an 855,000-square-foot distribution warehouse that’s set to break ground during the third quarter of next year, according to the publication.

Amazon currently operates a fulfillment center near Doral and is building one in the South Florida Logistics Center near Miami International Airport.

In July, Miami-Dade County commissioners approved a land deal for the project that allows the Carrie Meek Foundation to keep control of its 120 acres near the Miami-Opalocka Executive Airport. Under the deal, Meek’s team has a 65-year lease on the land and a new development deadline that stipulates $18 million worth of progress has to be made by 2019, with the entire project completed by 2025. [SFBJ] – Katherine Kallergis
