Amazon Puts Bridgeport Warehouse Up for Sublease
A planned Amazon warehouse in Bridgeport on Chicago’s South Side, which faced community opposition when the 112,000-square-foot project project was reviewed by city officials in 2020, has been put up for sublease by the company, reported the Chicago Tribune. A 189,000-square-foot warehouse in suburban Addison was also put up for sublease.
Amazon signed a deal for the Bridgeport facility at 2420 S. Halsted St. in 2020 and planned to operate the facility as a distribution center.
In a statement, Amazon spokesperson Steve Kelly said the company was “always evaluating our network and making adjustments to best fit the needs of our business and customers.”
Amazon made a big push to open warehouse facilities before and during the COVID-19 pandemic but has since pulled back on some of the expansion. The company has put up at least three suburban facilities for sublease over the last year, according to CoStar.
