Online retailer Amazon said Wednesday that it will build another warehouse packing and distribution center in the Las Vegas area.
The facility should open next year on 800,000 square feet (74,322 square meters) of vacant land east of Interstate 15, not far from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the Seattle-based company and city of North Las Vegas said in statements. Officials project it will generate more than 1,000 full-time jobs.
Company spokeswoman Lauren Lynch declined to provide a cost for what would become the fourth and largest Amazon facility in North Las Vegas.
Gov. Brian Sandoval called the announcement good news for the state. It comes as 20 cities around the country are competing to attract a second Amazon headquarters.
