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 Amazon.com 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.
