Amazon to open delivery station in Prince George's County – Washington Business Journal – The Business Journals Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) has inked a deal for a new delivery station in Prince George’s County, the company said.
The approximately 130,000-square-foot facility will be Amazon’s (NASDAQ: AMZN) first station built for it from the ground up in Greater Washington. The company signed the lease this month for the site 3700 Forestville Road in Forestville. Construction hasn’t started yet, but the station is expected to open in 2023, Amazon said. 
Nearby fulfillment centers ship packages to these delivery stations, which then power the final stretch, or last mile, by loading the packages onto delivery vehicles and delivering them to customers to complete the e-commerce platform’s order process.
An Amazon spokeswoman declined to share the cost of the lease and other terms of the lease. Prologis Inc. (NYSE: PLD), a global real estate firm headquartered in San Francisco, owns and is developing the building. Prologis declined to comment.
Last fall, Amazon opened three other delivery stations in Prince George’s County, a 264,000-square-foot facility in Beltsville, a 150,000-square-foot facility in Laurel and a 172,000-square-foot delivery station in Landover. The company also operates nine other delivery stations in Greater Washington: in Rockville, Upper Marlboro, Waldorf and Cheverly in Maryland, and in Sterling, Gainesville, Manassas and two in Springfield, Virginia.
Amazon has also announced plans to open a 630,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Stafford County as an East Coast hub for supply chain operations.
