Amazon will place their “Center for Excellence” which will serve as Amazon’s Eastern hub for retail operations in Downtown Nashville.
One million square feet of office space is Amazon’s projected need to house an additional 5,000 jobs it plans on bringing.
Amazon has already invested more than $5 billion in the state of Tennessee between 2011 and 2017.
“We are looking forward to joining the community and are excited to be creating high-paying jobs in Nashville. Our new Operations Center of Excellence will become the Eastern U.S. hub for our Retail Operations division,” said Holly Sullivan, a former local ECD official who is now part of Amazon’s public policy team.
The Center for Excellence represents another $230 million investment on behalf of Amazon.
