The online retailer is expanding its presence in California.

Amazon has pre-leased an additional one million sq. ft. of logistics space from Goodman Commerce Center Eastvale, California, according to a statement by Goodman. Goodman will construct the logistics center for Amazon.

“Our e-commerce customers require modern, flexible design solutions that cater to their diverse operational needs,” said Anthony Rozic, CEO of Goodman North America. “Our success is based on our understanding of these needs and our track record of on-time delivery to enable the successful execution of our customers' growth strategies.”

The 205-acre mixed-use development, located directly off the Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road Exit on the I-15, will offer a variety of space options, including distribution, business park, retail and medical. Developing and managing e-commerce distribution centers is one of the key growth drivers of Goodman's business.

The online retailer is scheduled to take occupancy of the new logistics facility in 2018, Goodman said.
