Amazon.com, America’s largest online retailer is coming to Lexington, South Carolina! Since 2006, Lexington County has been preparing 500 acres near I-77 as an industrial park where Amazon plans to build a new distribution center. The location for the new facility in Lexington is ideal, with the distribution center planned to be built just off I-77, which is near both I-26 and I-20. It’s also near the Columbia Metropolitan Airport and a UPS hub near the airport.
In addition to the construction jobs needed to build the 1 million square foot facility, the distribution center will create about 1,200 new jobs right outside of Columbia SC. BusinessWeek has listed Amazon.com as one of the Best Places to Launch a Career for the past few years.
Amazon has said the center could be completed as early as next Fall. If you are looking to relocate to Lexington be sure to check out our 10 new home communities that we are currently building in.
