A Walmart distribution center just east of the Flying J at SR 524 and I-95. The 132-acre, $100 million project will feature a 460,000-square-foot distribution facility and refrigerated warehouse.
Walmart Stores East LP has said it plans to open a distribution center and refrigerated warehouse complex that would store cold produce, meat, dairy and other perishable freezer items on the site.
The company said it plans to employ more than 450 people once the facility is operational. The project in total encompasses 592,830 square feet and 943 parking spaces.
This is the second massive distribution center Walmart has in the works in Central Florida. The retailer is creating 1,000 jobs at a new 2.2 million-square-foot, e-commerce distribution center in Davenport where Plateau Excavation was the site grader and utility contractor.
