Amazon scoops up third warehouse site on Staten Island


Meet the new King of Staten Island.

Online shopping behemoth Amazon is gearing up to open a third mega warehouse on Staten Island, according to a new report.

The tech giant founded by Jeff Bezos has leased nearly one million square feet at Matrix Global Logistics Park near the Goethals Bridge, where it already has two other warehouses, according to Crain’s New York Business, which confirmed the deal with Matrix Development Group.

Amazon first opened a 850,000-square-foot distribution center at the site in 2017 and added another 450,000-square-foot building next door this year. The third warehouse is 975,000 square feet.

Amazon did not immediately respond to an email for comment, but the Seattle-based company has been gobbling up New York metro area real estate as it expands its logistical and retail operations here.

In March, it bought the iconic Fifth Avenue Lord & Taylor’s flagship store for its New York City offices. And earlier this year it bought two former Fairway Market stores in New Jersey.

Last year, it scooped up a 100,000 square foot warehouse in the Bronx.
