Construction has started on another massive Amazon e-commerce warehouse in the Houston area, a building where robots will be used to package and ship items to customers around the world.
The new treatment center is under construction on 93.5 acres of land at 10507 Harlem Road in Richmond, southwest of Houston. There will be more than 850,000 square feet of the footprint, Seattle-based company and Texas developer Trammell Crow Co. said on Thursday in a statement.
The project is expected to bring 1,000 jobs to the region when it opens next year.

Amazon opened its first processing center built here a few years ago. The company received a 10-year tax break in Harris County to develop the North Houston building. The tax cut was planned to save Amazon by $ 180,000 a year.
Amazon also has 1 million square feet, the Brookshire Processing Center, west of Katy, and 300,000 square feet, the sorting center near George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
