An Amazon fulfillment facility promising 1,000 jobs and upwards of $250 million in investment has been announced for the Chatham County Development Site, better known as the Pooler megasite and located at the northeast corner of Interstate 95 and Interstate 16. Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced the plans on Friday.
Originally part of the City of Pooler, the 1,900-acre site was de-annexed to become part of unincorporated Chatham County in 2015. Bordered to the east by Dean Forest Road, the megasite was originally developed in 2002 to attract a single major manufacturer but was broken into parcels in 2009, with Mitsubishi Power Systems as the initial tenant.
“I appreciate Amazon’s continued commitment to creating well-paying e-commerce jobs for hardworking Georgians and look forward to the positive impact it will bring to the coastal region,” Kemp said in a press release.
