The almost 380,000-square-foot facility is a half-mile from a recently permitted Amazon center.
Imeson International Industrial Park Inc. intends to develop another warehouse in North Jacksonville.
The St. Johns River Water Management District is reviewing plans for the Orlando-based company to develop a 377,685-square-foot building on 28.45 acres at 9500 Busch Drive N.
Imeson International Industrial Park Inc. President Dan Webb said by email Nov. 3 that there is no time frame for development and the structure is being designed for multitenant use but is looking for a single tenant.
“We are getting the site permits so we are ready to move quickly,” he said.
The site is at northeast Busch Drive and Imeson Park Boulevard.
EnVision Design + Engineering LLC is the agent and civil engineer. Access Ecological Associates is the environmental consultant.
Imeson International Industrial Park, at northeast Main Street and Zoo Parkway, also is the site for one of Amazon.com Inc.’s 10 most recently announced or identified facilities.
The city issued a permit Oct. 13 for Threecore LLC in Sarasota to build-out a 477,946-square-foot package delivery hub at 250 Busch Drive E. at a cost of $15 million. That’s about a half-mile from the new warehouse.
Plans show the 250 Busch Drive E. project is an Amazon.com package delivery service with employees in two shifts – days and evenings – and a possible third seasonal shift.
It is labeled DJX3, an Amazon code.
No job count was stated, but utility JEA’s description in a service availability letter called it a “478,000-square-foot warehouse with 200 employees and 102 loading bays.”
Packages arriving at the facility will be labeled for shipping within local neighborhoods and surrounding areas by vans
The city approved construction of the shell building in May 2019 for Webb Southeast Construction Corp., affiliated with Imeson International Industrial Park, to build the distribution center on 30.69 acres at a construction cost of almost $13.7 million.
Webb said at the time there was no tenant.
EnVision Design + Engineering LLC was the civil engineer.
