Amazon officials told the Louisville Metro Planning Commission during an early November meeting that it plans to establish the facility in a 142,000 -square-foot office and warehouse, with heavy truck loading and unloading areas, at 1231 Durrett Lane near Preston Highway. The project also calls for about 700 parking spaces for vans. Louisville Business First reviewed a video recording of the November meeting this week.
Louisville-based real estate firm Poe Cos. is developing the complex and previously asked the city to rezone the site from the C-1 and C-2 commercial districts to the PEC multipurpose district, according to city filings. The property had been home to a vacant 225,000-square-foot former bank processing center that Poe Cos. purchased in September 2019 through an affiliate, Durrett LLC, for $5.5 million.
