Today, Amazon announced it will make a significant investment in facilities across the Phoenix-Mesa metro including a 150,000-square-foot delivery station in Mesa's Falcon District at the southeast corner of Higley Road and Longbow Parkway east of the Boeing's manufacturing facility, northeast of Falcon Field Airport, and just south of Loop 202.
"Many of us rely on Amazon's delivery service and now our residents will receive their packages faster than ever," City of Mesa Mayor John Giles said. "I'm proud that Mesa now has three of the Big Four tech companies in our city with Amazon joining Apple and Google."
Amazon has leased the recently built Longbow Gateway One industrial facility and additional land from the Opus Group where it will locate delivery station operations. The additional land will accommodate parking for employees and staging for delivery vehicles.
"District 5 is known for being the home to some of the top businesses in the country," District 5 Councilmember David Luna said. "Adding Amazon to the already impressive list further solidifies not only the Falcon District, but the entire City of Mesa, as a go-to destination for nationally renowned companies to come and do business."
Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon's order fulfillment process. Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers. Interior tenant improvements are already underway.
Amazon offers full-time employees comprehensive benefits including full medical, vision, and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50 percent match starting on day one. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families.
