Amazon’s “Last Mile” Building in Tucson Sells as Net Lease Investment to New York Investors


TUCSON, Arizona – The Amazon Distribution building at 775 W Silverlake Road in Tucson in a net investment sale for $17.718 million ($358 PSF). The newly constructed 49,500-square-foot distribution center is located near I-10 and I-19 close to downtown Tucson for delivery vans.

Scanell Properties of Indianapolis, Indiana assembled the 17.3-acre parcel for Amazon in 2018 and then built the facility in 2019. The property is leased triple net to Amazon.

Sun Corridor and the City of Tucson worked to bring the Amazon distribution building to the downtown area, in addition to the larger sister property of Amazon at the Port of Tucson and say this building was designed for what is called “the last mile” deliveries. Independent drivers come, pick up packages and take these from the distribution center to the door.

The City of Tucson building permits peg the cost of the Silverlake building to be over $4.3 million.
