Second Amazon warehouse planned for San Marcos

The 1-million-square-foot facility is proposed on about 70s acres off I-35.

SAN MARCOS, Texas — Amazon is planning another massive distribution center in San Marcos.

According to the Austin Business Journal, the 1-million-square-foot warehouse is proposed on about 70 acres near the Hays County Transportation Department off Interstate Highway 35.

While the deal hasn't been finalized yet, the journal reports the facility should be up and running by September of next year.

A parking variance for the site was approved at the Dec. 15 San Marcos City Council meeting, in which councilmembers confirmed the land was being prepared for the facility.

The retailer continues to expand in Central Texas, with facilities in Kyle, Buda, Pflugerville and Round Rock. Amazon already has an 855,000-square-foot center in San Marcos.

City documents do not indicate how many people the new warehouse will employ, but a project representative told the Austin Business Journal 557 employee parking spaces are planned at the site.
