It’s the second major construction project in the East Bay that involves Amazon — the company announced last year that it will be the first tenant in the massive Contra Costa Logistics Center project in Oakley. The company plans to set up a 150,000 sq ft Amazon fulfillment center in the new complex, which the city expects to complete in the next four years. The finished complex will consist of five buildings, totaling 2 million square feet of space, and officials said it will provide nearly 2,000 jobs.
