Amazon packages move along a conveyor prior to Amazon robots transporting packages from workers to chutes that are organized by zip code, at an Amazon facility.

Amazon.com’s Softlines category is identified on plans as the tenant for a 1 million-square-foot distribution center at Imeson Park in North Jacksonville.

Softlines is the online retailer’s category of apparel and shoes and also is a brand of Amazon footwear.

The city approved a permit July 31 for Evans General Contractors LLC of Savannah to build a $5.7 million warehouse foundation, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

The city also is reviewing a permit application for construction of the building at a cost of almost $41.2 million.

No job count is available, but plans call for more than 1,500 parking spaces for cars.

Plans identify the client as Amazon and the warehouse as Softlines JAX7, which appears to be Amazon’s code for the location.

An expanded version of this story with additional details about plans for the distribution center along with a roundup of Amazon's other Jacksonville facilities is at JaxDailyRecord.com.
