Chicago Proud - New Amazon Distribution Center and Phase 1

Pullman Amazon Distribution Center

When Ryan Companies and Amazon wanted a partner for permitting on a time sensitive project, they went to Phase 1 to get the job done.

In collaboration with community developer Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives, Ryan Companies worked to develop Pullman Crossings, now the location of an Amazon Distribution Center on a 62-acre industrial site located at 10700 S Doty Avenue in the Pullman neighborhood.  "The 145,000-square-foot built-to-suit distribution center for tenant Amazon, Ryan Companies has developed and built three industrial facilities totaling 685,000 square feet at Pullman Crossings since 2017. Pullman Crossings was designated a federal Qualified Opportunity Zone."

The project was "...completed in less than eight months in order to open prior to Amazon’s peak holiday season, the project was fast-tracked with the city. Designed to account for future environmental efficiencies, the building features a roof constructed to take on solar panels and 38 acres of parking that is electric-charging ready for Amazon’s fleet of delivery vehicles."

The project created hundreds of temporary construction jobs and hundreds more permanent jobs at the fulfillment center upon completion and was ready in time for the holiday season. Phase 1 is proud to have been part of this successful fast paced project.  Looking for a partner to deliver results on your next project? Look no further than Phase 1.
