Amazon may be poised to lease a recently built “spec” warehouse space along Route 13 (DuPont Highway) in the Delaware City area.
The proposed improvements “will modify the existing truck courts and modify traffic circulation to accommodate a tenant fit-out and associated operations,” the letter stated.
Delaware City Logistics Park is a project of Missouri-based NorthPoint Development. The 190-acre tract was sold by a chemical company that never developed the site.
The Logistics Park’s first tenant was Dart Container, which consolidated Maryland distribution centers at the NorthPoint location. Dart, best known for Solo Cup products, has a manufacturing site on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
(See earlier story on the purchase of the site).
Amazon earlier confirmed plans to construct another distribution center, but no location was specified.
An Amazon media representative said the company “has a policy of not commenting on rumors, speculation or our future roadmap.”
Work is continuing on a new Amazon Fulfillment Center on a portion of the site that formerly housed the Boxwood GM assembly plant near Newaport.
