Amazon is coming to Hall County.

The company will occupy new buildings at Lanier Logistics Center, which is at 5000 Lanier Islands Parkway in Buford, according to a press release from developer IDI Logistics.

The press release cites an Atlanta Business Chronicle article.

The vast online retailer plans to occupy more than 1 million square feet at the site for a new logistics operation, the article says.

The project includes one 815,000-square-foot building and a 300,000-square-foot building.

Amazon will use Lanier Logistics Center for a delivery station, where products are moved into the last-mile delivery system, the article says.

Other details, such as employment, weren’t immediately available.

The center is part of ongoing warehouse development in Hall, including I-985 Lanier Logistics, also off Lanier Islands Parkway at Ga. 13.
