Document Description
The Project would demolish the existing 637,503-square-foot office building and surface parking lot to construct a 181,500-square-foot parcel delivery facility, consisting of 163,350 square feet of warehouse space and 18,150 square feet of ancillary office space, on a 31.52-acre site. The proposed facility would be a single-story building with a maximum height of 44 feet and FAR of 0.14. The Project would provide 1,064 vehicle parking spaces (consisting of 305 automobile spaces, 755 delivery van spaces, and four trailer truck spaces), 180 van loading spaces (90 loading spaces and 90 staging spaces), and 14 Utility Tractor Rig loading spaces to serve facility operations. The proposed facility would be generally located in the center of the Project Site and flanked by loading areas and surrounded by vehicle parking. The Project building would be located entirely within the M-1 zone, and surface parking and drive aisles would be located within the M-1 and MU-II zoned portion of the Project Site. The Project would operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to support delivery of packages to customer locations. The Applicant anticipates approximately 25 line haul trucks delivering packages to the Project Site each day, primarily between the hours of 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. The packages are removed from the line haul trucks, sorted by delivery routes, placed onto movable racks, and staged for dispatch. Delivery service Partner (DSP) and Amazon Flex drivers would work shifts between the hours of 9:20 a.m. and 9:10 p.m. to deliver customer packages. Amazon associates and managers would be assigned shifts to support and supervise delivery operations. Employee shifts and departure windows for delivery drivers are designed to alleviate impacts during rush hour periods. The Applicant anticipates that on a daily basis, there would be a total of 224 associates, managers, and dispatchers who work within the proposed facility; 312 van drivers; and 80 Flex drivers.1 In order to fulfill the operational need, the Applicant anticipates that a maximum of 800 workers would be hired at the proposed facility.
