Amazon Files $10M Permit For New Facility

By Patrick Lantrip

With its 615,000-square-foot facility at 3282 E. Holmes Road under construction, e-commerce giant Amazon has filed a $10 million building permit application that lists “tenant improvement” for a new location at 5155 Citation Drive.

Exeter Property Group, doing business as Exeter 5155 Citation LLC, was listed as the property owner, while Catamount Constructors Inc. was listed as the contractor.

The roughly 400,000-square-foot facility was most recently used as distribution facility for AT&T before the company, doing business as New Cingular Wireless PCS, moved into a 430,130-square-foot facility in the DeSoto Trade Center’s Eastgate Building 3 in the first quarter of 2018.

In addition to the Holmes Road receive center, Amazon also operates a warehouse at 6005 Freeport Ave.

Exeter originally purchased the property in 2013 for $11.3 million.
