Amazon.com Inc. is moving into the Florida industrial park owned by the Sansone Group.

The e-commerce giant will open a 220,000-square-foot facility in St. Louis-based Sansone Group’s new Port St. Lucie County distribution park, Legacy Park at Tradition. The company will operate a delivery station at the site and plans to hire 200 full-time workers to prepare customer orders for last-mile delivery within 45 miles of the facility. The second phase of the warehouse development started construction last year with two speculative warehouses that are separate from the Amazon development, a company spokesperson said.

Sansone Group and NorthBridge Partners LLC are partnering as project developers, and construction is projected to finish by September. Threecore has been selected as general contractor for the single-story, 32-foot-tall building, the Sansone Group said in a news release. The Port St. Lucie City Council approved the project’s site plan in May under the code name “Project Senior,” named after Sansone Group founder Anthony Sansone Sr. The St. Louis company named Legacy Park in honor of the legacy left by the company’s founder.

Development costs were not disclosed.

“Sansone Group is very pleased to be developing this state-of-the-art building for a first-class tenant. Amazon is an outstanding anchor tenant for Legacy Park’s five million square feet of Class A industrial space,” said Sansone Group Principal Nick Sansone in a statement. “We are proud to be able to contribute to the creation of 200 jobs and prosperity to Port St. Lucie.”

Amazon will join other tenants at Legacy Park that include Cheney Brothers and FedEx Ground, which will open its new 245,000-square-foot sortation center this month. Sansone Group plans for Legacy Park to include a total of approximately 5.4 million square feet of single and multi-tenant, Class A institutional-quality light industrial and distribution facilities.

The Economic Development Council of St. Lucie County assisted the project with expedited site plan review and master site plan approval in 57 days. Commercial real estate broker Robert Smith of CBRE worked with Sansone Group to bring Amazon to Legacy Park.
