August 21, 2019 GMT

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — A company official says an Amazon distribution facility being built in suburban Las Vegas is expected to create 1,000 full-time jobs.

Amazon spokeswoman Anne Laughlin tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that a company fulfillment center in Henderson will be the seventh Amazon facility in southern Nevada.

Six others are in North Las Vegas.

Construction began in April on the 600,000-square-foot (55,742-square-meter) industrial building off St. Rose Parkway. It’s due to open by next summer.


It’ll be located near Henderson Executive Airport and a $75 million office and practice facility being built by the NFL Raiders ahead of the team relocation next year to Las Vegas from Oakland, California.
