City of Oakley Officially Announces Amazon Coming to Contra Costa Logistics Center

by ECT

In what may be one of the worst kept secrets over the past several months, the City of Oakley announced on Thursday that the first tenant of the Contra Costa Logistics Center is Amazon!

A formal announcement and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Wednesday, October 7th.

According to the city, the Amazon Fulfillment Center will occupy the 150,000-square-foot Building #1 at the Contra Costa Logistics Center Complex located at 6000 Bridgehead Road. Once the project is complete (which is anticipated within four years) five buildings, totaling 2 million-square-feet will house a variety of light industrial and logistics uses, providing nearly 2,000 jobs to the community.

Back in January, the city held a groundbreaking on the complex.

According to the City, they have planned for development at the site since 2002 and is expected to bring in $388,400 annually to the city’s General Fund. It will also make a contribution of $420,000 per year in revenue for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District once its completed.

The city says the plan calls for five buildings to be constructed on a 143-acres along the southwest portion of the site, with the additional 232 acres remaining natural.

The project will also provide several roadway improvements in the following areas:

  • Wilbur Avenue and Bridghead Road
  • Bridgehead Road and Neroly Road
  • Main Street and Empire
  • Big Break Road at Main Street.

In January, Oakley mayor Kevin Romick said this new development will create a vital, long awaited economic hub in Oakley.

“Since Oakley’s incorporation as a city 20-years ago, this property has been considered a key to job growth and a potential hub of industry,” said Romick. “To see this project come to fruition is so gratifying and exciting for the entire Oakley community.”

All of these employees will go to Antioch for food, gas or anything else they need,because the pathetic oakley council and corrupt city manager have done zero for Oakley’s economic growth. If its not cigarette stores or storage places do not bother coming to Oakley.

You have it backwards. A logistics center with a couple thousand employees will encourage more retail stores to locate in Oakley. Demand creates its own supply.

And what is Antioch doing. Nothing as usual. We do have rusty cars out on Wilbur we have never made a dime off. All Antioch cares about is weed and more weed. We have the most disgusting economic development team in the state. Useless.

I agree

This can probably work well as it appears to be far from residential areas and truck access will be via Highways 4 and 160.

Oakley should take care not to the mistake some other cities have made – blinded by the allure of property tax revenues – and allowed Amazon warehouse facilities to be sited adjacent to residential neighborhoods and without direct access to highways. Newark is one such city. it’s residents now enjoy 24/7 semi-truck traffic congestion and noise on their city streets.

It is bettwr than nothing but I hope they did not bend to the will of that behemoth and offer so many tax incentives as to see no revnue for decades. If i am paying exorbitant property taxes and sales taxes make amazon pay their fair share. The jobs will be nice, but i hope thwre is incentove to hire contra costa residents first. 2000 peoplw not xomutting 2 hours is great, now those families can spwnd time together.
And yes antioxh has 2 dispensaries but they are constantly busy and paying their taxes. They have not brought any crime or blight i am aware of. People smoke, always have always will your moral superiority has never stopped it, might as well get that money. Oh ya vote no on lamar thorpe and his crew of politcal thugs

Are you drunk? You can seem to type the right letters!!!

Doesn’t matter where they put any of Jeff BOZO’s crappy “fulfillment” temples. I have never bought anything from that ugly Scheister’s company and never will. He is the one who killed the retail industry and maybe someone socked him in his right eye over that. Check it out.

Neal Evans Sep 19, 2020 - 10:18 pm

I noticed his right eye! Wondered what happened to it. He is so repulsive-looking. Then, on top of it all, he sends photos of his crooked dick to his ugly girlfriend online. Yuck!

I can’t stand that grifter, Jeff Bozo (not even his real name) and do not buy anything from his crappy company which he didn’t even start.

Jean Lemieux Sep 20, 2020 - 7:51 pm

Bozo pays his “Fulfillment” employees $15/hr. I’m sure that’s a really livable wage, especially in California. Maybe these jobs should be the “after school jobs” for teenagers like some of the fast foods places were.
