Sources: Amazon to double its Dallas regional operations hub at Galleria Towers
Online retail giant Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) has decided to double its North Texas operations hub at the Galleria Towers in Dallas as it expands its regional supply chain.
The Seattle-based online retailer has signed a lease for five floors, or roughly 100,000 square feet, which will basically double Amazon.com's regional office within the Galleria Towers property, multiple real estate sources told the Dallas Business Journal.
The retailer is expected to move onto five contiguous floors within the former FedEx Office space within Three Galleria Tower at 13155 Noel Road in Dallas. Amazon did not respond to interview requests.
The expansion of the regional operations center was likely needed to help support the online retailer's growing presence in North Texas, said Susan Arledge, president of site selection for Dallas-based E Smith Realty Partners.
Arledge, who isn't working on the deal, said companies like Amazon.com want to locate near adjacent facilities and a talented workforce.
Amazon.com has millions of square feet of distribution space in North Texas and employs thousands of workers.
