Amazon at Deltona’s “Portland Industrial Park”


The City of Deltona welcomes Amazon to our City! The project represents the most recent, and largest win from the City’s ongoing economic development efforts.
   The project will result in the construction of a 1.4 million square foot fulfillment center, built on an 85 acre portion of the new Portland Industrial Park, located at the Interstate-4/SR 472 Interchange Area. The City plans for this area to be an employment center of regional significance.

     Over time, Amazon is expected to employ 1,500 employees, with an above average wage of thirty-two thousand dollars plus full benefits. The City of Deltona’s Economic Development Manager, Jerry Mayes stated: “This project is the result of nearly a decade of planning to attract and support select industries to the City of Deltona. It is gratifying to have collaborated with so many partners, all of whom welcome the Amazon Fulfillment Center as the first company in our Portland Industrial Park”.

     As the first major project in the Portland Industrial Park, Amazon’s presence will help define the area as a major upcoming business center. The ability to attract additional large employers will simultaneously create economic opportunity for Deltona businesses and residents, while helping to diversify the City’s tax base. Longer term, the City will continue to actively recruit new business to this expanding employment center located on I-4.

   With fulfillment centers being developed throughout the state, including a November announcement of a facility in Auberndale, Florida which is in the Winter Haven-Lakeland area, Deltona is the latest announcement by Amazon. This construction project being the largest city between Orlando and Jacksonvile, and the last high-traffic location along I-4 to yet be developed, Deltona and its’ workforce are ready to get to work. There are an estimated 500+ jobs to become available at Amazons’ Deltona location. This exciting announcement is attracting new businesses to the area and locations along Howland Boulevard as well as throughout the city are starting to be developed, creating even more jobs and revenue for the city.

   “Portland Industrial Park, which is 250 acres of logistic-based development just off Howland Boulevard at Interstate-4 now has it’s first business in development, Amazon, with a 1,400,000 square-foot logistics center. You heard about that, right? Seriously, think about it…that’s 23 acres of concrete. That’s 1,000+ new jobs guaranteed. The rest of Portland industrial park is going to have more logistics. Plans include an additional 1-million square-foot logistics center building, another building at 198,000 square feet, and a third at 178,000 square feet. Then, we still have opportunity for additional light manufacturing concepts.   That could easily be 2,000 or more new jobs. It doesn’t just happen. It takes planning, hard work, spirit and dedication. But we’ve been working on it for a while and you can see the fruit of our labor as we plan the work and work the plan.”
