Amazon continued its expansion across the region by signing a lease of a 202,421-square feet industrial building in Moorpark, the company confirmed on Wednesday, Aug. 11.

The building, which was recently refurbished, is located in the industrial area at 6000 Condor Drive and features 16 dock positions, 24-foot ceiling clearance and a fenced/secured yard, company officials said. Located in close proximity to the 118 Freeway, it includes nearly 25,000-square feet of office space.

Amazon spokesman Eileen Hards said work is still being done on the Moorpark building, which will eventually be turned into a delivery station, at which orders are prepared for last-mile delivery to customers, enabling fast shipping.

“Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order-fulfillment process,” Hards wrote in an email.

Hards said that in addition to hundreds of permanent, full-time, and part-time jobs, delivery stations offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own small business delivering Amazon packages, and independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.

Don Thordarson of Donald J. Thordarson Inc. represented the landlord along with Daum Commercial Real Estate Services Executive Vice President Bram White. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Over the last few years, Amazon warehouses and fulfillment centers have popped up across Southern California in the company’s ongoing effort to expand its distribution space as the pandemic accelerated online shopping.

Since 2010, the e-commerce giant has invested more than $13.5 billion in Los Angeles and $81 billion in California, according to its 2021 U.S. Economic Impact report. Amazon created nearly 15,000 jobs in Los Angeles in its operations, logistics, corporate, and technology functions.

Those investments contributed more than $14.2 billion to the economy over the last decade, according to the report.

In 2019-2021 alone, Amazon Studios has invested over $750 million in 24 productions based in Los Angeles, employing over 3,000 casts and crew.

“From our operations network to our physical retail locations, Tech Hubs, sustainability and transportation infrastructures across the state, we continue to invest in California and its people, because California helps us deliver for our customers,” said Tom Florino, Senior Manager for Economic Development at Amazon, in a statement.

The Seattle-based company recently signed two leases for Amazon delivery stations in Torrance and Burbank. Later this month, Amazon will launch a delivery station in Glendale, according to the company.
