Last year the online giant leased its first e-commerce warehouse at Greenogue Business Park in Rathcoole – a 6,500 sq m delivery station where products are picked and packaged for delivery by Amazon staff.

USAA Real Estate Company, a specialist that has built facilities for the web retailing giant in the US, was drafted in for the development.

The new facility is located next to Casement Aerodrome. As part of the planning application, the developers state demand for such online shopping is at an “all-time high”.
