The Amazon warehouse coming to Northeast Amarillo is on track to open early 2022. The grading on the construction site is complete and now the foundation is being poured.

There’s lots of activity on the property with people working on it 24/7 depending on the weather.

Concrete is finished on all of the west side entrances going on to the property. This facility does not do customer deliveries, so Amazon Prime members in the Panhandle will be receiving their packages the same way they currently do.
