A new 1.1 million square foot distribution center is coming to the Crossroads 55 Business Park in Channahon.
The Village of Channahon announced that Amazon recently closed a deal with Venture One Real Estate to build the center at the northeast corner of Bradley Street and Amoco Road.
The developer will be required to install additional public infrastructure improvements to accommodate the build out of Crossroads 55 and adjacent properties.
Village President Missey Moorman Schumacher said a traffic signal in that area is currently under construction and will be completed by 2020.
She said this project will create 500 full-time jobs with benefits, further diversify their tax base and no local incentives were provided to Amazon.
Construction of the facility should begin immediately and be occupied by the fall of 2020.
