The South Dodge Business Center is located near Butterfield Industrial Park, I-10 and Tucson International Airport and was approximately 68% occupied when it sold. It is also located less than 8-miles away from the future Amazon Fulfillment Center at Century Park Research Center that pulled building permits last month for the approximately 1.2 million-square-feet of warehouse and office space being developed by Seefried Industrial Properties.

Obviously, local suppliers will benefit from the Amazon facility in terms of lower shipping costs, avoidance of tariffs and duties and improved profit margin. Additionally, Amazon stands to benefit from the many products unique to southern Arizona, which have a worldwide appeal.

Amazon currently employs more than 7,000 in Arizona; new Tucson facility will employ more than 1,500 associates. Between 2011 and 2016, Amazon’s investments in Arizona contributed more than $900 million to the state’s economy, indirectly creating 18,000 additional jobs on top of the 7,000 the company employs directly.

According to the press release, Pima County and Sun Corridor Inc. played an active role in bringing the Amazon project to Tucson.

“Southern Arizona continues to attract industry leaders like Amazon seeking the ideal location for their next phase of growth,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “Amazon’s continued expansion throughout Arizona with this new operation in Tucson speaks to the company’s confidence in our state as an excellent place to do business.”
