Jacksonville Daily Record
Amazon plans an almost 280,000-square-foot facility in AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center.

City Council member Aaron Bowman said at the close of the Council meeting Jan. 26 that the new Westside center will be a $40 million project that creates 200 jobs.

Bowman, the District 3 Council representative, is senior vice president of business development of JAX Chamber.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reported he referred to an announcement of the 280,000-square-foot facility, although the Seattle-based retailer has not issued a news release about it.

His comments came four days after the city approved foundation construction Jan. 22 for an Amazon facility at AllianceFlorida at Cecil Commerce Center at a cost of $2.7 million.
