Amazon.com Inc. has signed a lease to operate in a 224,154-square-foot industrial building at 6015 Giant Road in Richmond, which is expected to bring hundreds of jobs to the city.

The San Francisco Business Times broke the story Wednesday, saying the company will locate in the Pinole Point complex.

Cesar Zepeda, president of the Hilltop District Homeowners & Stakeholders Association, said on Facebook that the new lease will usher in at least 300 jobs and support surrounding restaurants and shops.

The building will add to Amazon’s other Bay Area locations in South San Francisco and Newark. Last month, it signed a lease for 1 million square feet in Tracy, the Business Times reported.

“The company has increasingly picked warehouses closer to urban centers such as San Francisco as it offers new services, including same-day delivery,” the Biz Times said.

Amazon will have some big-time neighbors, including Whole Foods, which has a 117,200-square-foot building nearby and Williams-Sonoma, which leased a 252,000-square-foot building, also at the Pinole Point complex.

  6. From a property value standpoint….not the best choice for prime real estate, but excellent choice for job creation for the people of Richmond. Big win for the people of Richmond and surrounding cities. Excellent opportunity.
