Amazon plans 1.2 million-square-foot fulfillment center in University Park

Amazon will invest $150 million in a new 1.2 million-square-foot fulfillment center near Interstate 57 and University Parkway in University Park that is expected to create at least 800 jobs, the village and company confirmed Thursday.
