Amazon decided against putting its second headquarters in South Florida, but the online retailer opened another distribution center to ensure speedy deliveries in the tri-county area.

Amazon has opened a distribution center in 100,000 square feet at the Sawgrass International Corporate Park in Sunrise, according to Lou Sandors, the city’s economic development director. The space formerly was occupied by an online retailer called Fanatics.

Amazon spokeswoman Amanda Ip told the Sun-Sentinel that the company has 75 facilities nationwide like the new one in Sunrise.

Last year, the online retailer leased 50,000 square feet at 101 Northeast 23rd Street in the Wynwood area of Miami to support its Prime Now delivery operations.

In 2016, Amazon leased an 800,000-square-foot warehouse at Miami Opa-locka Executive Airport and a 117,235-square-foot space at the South Florida Logistics Center in Miami at 3200 Northwest 67th Avenue in Miami.

South Florida was one of 20 metropolitan areas on the short list to become the home of Amazon’s second headquarters, or HQ2, which will be established in New York City and Arlington, Virginia. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
