A large distribution center is planned for 13200 S.W. 272nd St., next door to the FedEx Ground facility.  

Miami-Dade County has sold a large South Dade property to a large e-commerce corporation The 76.9 acre property in Homestead is to be the largest Miami-Dade distribution center to date. The planned extreme size will allow the distribution center to meet the growing demand throughout Miami-Dade and the Florida Keys, as well as other parts of south Florida.

The property was purchased from Miami-Dade County for $22.06 million.

According to the Business Journal, “The site plan calls for 1 million square feet, investing at least $80 million in construction and related costs, and will create at least 325 jobs with an average salary of $32,000.”

The Journal cited that Foundry Commercial Acquisitions, who developed a site for Amazon in Opa-Locka, filed this site plan with 95 loading docks, 200 trailer stalls and 666 car parking spaces.
