Site development plans were filed Dec. 11 for an Amazon.com ecommerce delivery hub in the former Kmart along Blanding Boulevard in Westside.
The civil engineering plans, designed by Fort Lauderdale-based Langan Engineering and Environmental Services Inc., were submitted through Miami-based landowner, Blanding Self Storage LLC.
Amazon describes the facility as an ecommerce distribution, fulfillment, and delivery hub.
Plans for the old Kmart at 4645 Blanding Blvd. show that the existing building will remain with modifications to the parking and loading areas.
The plans show a van parking area, eight platform doors, 72 van loading spaces, 131 van parking spaces and 236 parking spaces.
The landowner has requested the zoning change of the property from Commercial / General-2 community to the development of planned units for use as an e-commerce distribution, fulfillment and delivery center. Approval of the rezoning is expected in the first quarter of next year.
