Amazon leases a southwest Everett warehouse for deliveries

The Seaway Center building is not as big as one of the company’s more typical fulfillment centers.

EVERETT — Amazon has started leasing a 92,000-square-foot warehouse in south Everett for its “last-mile efforts,” part of its drive to deliver packages to consumers.

There’s no estimate on the number of employees who will work out of the center or a timeline when the company will occupy the space.

“It’s going to be a smaller operation than what folks might be accustomed to seeing with our larger fulfillment centers,” said Ernesto Apreza, a spokesman for the company.

Apreza said he’s unaware of any other Amazon operations in Snohomish County. The warehouse is in the Seaway Center in southwest Everett. He did not have an exact address.

Economic Alliance Snohomish County said that Amazon will occupy a warehouse in the industrial center formerly occupied by Columbia Distributing. The beverage distributor moved to a new warehouse in the Seaway Center developed by Underwood Gartland.
