Amazon’s Prime Now delivery just got closer.

The e-commerce giant, fresh off the announcement of its Whole Foods acquisition, opened a Prime Now hub in Wynwood on Wednesday. Amazon is partnering with El Latino, a Doral-based Latin food producer, to deliver items like pan de bono, queso blanco and arepas throughout Miami, and will also be delivering frozen items like Ben & Jerry’s ice cream – just in time for a sweltering Miami summer.

Amazon inked a 50,000-square-foot lease at 101 Northeast 23rd Street, on the southeast edge of the artsy neighborhood, just east of the train tracks.

The company’s Prime Now service offers same-day delivery, within one and two hours. One-hour delivery costs $7.99 and two-hour delivery is free for Prime members.

The Wynwood deal marks the first warehouse for Amazon in a walkable, urban Miami neighborhood. Last month, the Seattle-based company signed a lease for a third distribution center in Miami-Dade County, an 800,000-square-foot warehouse at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport that will also include a Prime Now hub. Amazon also has warehouses in Doral and near Miami International Airport.

The $13.7 billion Whole Foods deal could also have huge implications for e-commerce and supermarkets. With the Whole Foods purchase, Amazon will have stores from Pinecrest to Palm Beach Gardens in South Florida.

Property records show Miami Holdings LLC, a company tied to developer Moishe Mana, owns the Wynwood warehouse. Amazon took over the building last year, sources told The Real Deal. The Mana entity paid $2.9 million for the warehouse in 2012. A spokesperson for the developer could not immediately be reached for comment.

Just west over the train tracks is the site of the proposed Wynwood Square mixed-use project. One Real Estate Investment put the site on the market earlier this year, expecting it to sell for anywhere between $31 million and more than $46 million.
