Amazon plans to open a new delivery center on property purchased from the Colorado Springs Airport.
The Gazette reported that a purchase agreement was finalized Tuesday for 19 acres at the airport.
Documents say CF Capybara, a subsidiary of New York-based Fortress Investment Group, bought the site for $2.01 million and will lease a building on the property to Amazon.
The Pikes Peak Regional Building Department issued a building permit last week for a 66,000-square-foot (about 6,132 square meter) warehouse that is scheduled to be completed in mid-September at a cost of nearly $6 million.
The center could employ 600 people and will replace a temporary tent operation.
Amazon Logistics said in a statement that the site is expected to open in 2019. It will be the fourth Delivery Station in Colorado.
