Amazon Buys 18 Acres for Distribution Center in Duluth
Amazon recently purchased two parcels of land from the Duluth Economic Development Authority (DEDA) that are located within a commercial area known as Atlas Industrial Park at 2302 Commonwealth Avenue.
The 18 acres were sold to Ryan Companies for $90,324 and transferred to Amazon.com Services LLC. The site will be used as an Amazon distribution center. In 2004, DEDA purchased both lots and additional parcels totaling approximately 60 acres for $232,000 from Universal Atlas Cement Division.
The property is situated along Commonwealth Avenue to the west and north, also across from Granite Works, located at 9830 Grand Avenue. “This is a significant win for our community. Amazon is investing in the commercial tax base of Western Duluth, requiring no public incentives to do so,” Director of Planning and Economic Development Chad Ronchetti said. “We expect this activation on the Atlas site will open the door to much more.”
