Amazon Plans Sterling Heights, Michigan, Delivery Station

Amazon will open a new 576,000-square-foot delivery station at Liberty Park Commerce Center in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The project is expected to create about 200 jobs in the region.

Liberty Park Commerce Center on Mound Road is part of a Brownfield redevelopment project that will require an environmental cleanup. The new station is in the Innovate Mound corridor, which has created an $8 billion annual economic impact on the regional economy, officials told The Detroit News.

“A development project like this is significant to Sterling Heights,” Sterling Heights senior economic development advisor Luke Bonner said in a statement. “Not only does it bring in an important tax base to the City, it also brings in jobs."

Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor told The Detroit News the area's skilled workforce attracted Amazon to Sterling Heights.

“Our skilled labor in Southeast Michigan, particularly in Sterling Heights, is second to none," he said. "We are delighted Amazon has chosen Sterling Heights as home to one of the first delivery stations in the country.”

Amazon has three other delivery stations in the Metro Detroit area: Romulus, Wixom and Hazel Park. The company has fulfillment and sorting centers in Livonia, Shelby Charter Township, Romulus and Brownstown Township. Amazon sends packages from large-scale fulfillment hubs to delivery stations to be loaded onto delivery trucks.
