The 125,000-square-foot last-mile facility will be built at 5100 Inman Road in St. Augustine.

St. Johns County approved a permit Feb. 22 for Ryan Companies US Inc. to build an Amazon.com delivery station in St. Augustine at a cost of $16 million.

The 125,000-square-foot project is planned at 5100 Inman Road.

The St. Johns Board of County Commissioners approved a major modification to planned unit development zoning Sept. 15 for the last-mile distribution facility that would create 350 jobs.

Jacksonville-based Fountains of St Augustine LLC is the property owner of the site at northeast Interstate 95 and Florida 16 near the St. Augustine Outlets.

The 125,000-square-foot facility and parking is planned on 58.74 undeveloped acres by developer Ryan Companies US Inc., which is based in Minneapolis and has a Tampa office.

The applicant representative, Brad Wester from the Jacksonville-based Driver, McAfee, Hawthorne & Diebenow law firm, said at the county board meeting the facility will employ 150 full-time workers and about 200 distribution drivers. Wages will be an “industry leading pay at $15 per hour,” he said.

Amazon has opened or indicated plans to operate at least 12 locations in Northeast Florida, including three large fulfillment centers; six delivery stations; a heavy bulk-freight center; and the two sortation centers.

The Amazon.com delivery station site is at northeast Interstate 95 and Florida 16 near the St. Augustine Outlets.
