After more than six months of collaboration, Amazon recently announced its commitment to the development of a new 2,000 job fulfillment center to be located at the former Randall Park Mall site in the Village of North Randall.
“This is absolutely fantastic news,” said Greater Cleveland Partnership President and CEO Joe Roman. ‘It’s indicative of our region becoming more and more attractive to investors and leading corporations.
“Beyond the immediate investment in North Randall, additional economic impacts will resonate in the east side communities and neighborhoods surrounding the site.”
The GCP Business Development Team provided direct support to the mammoth business attraction project working closely with tremendous staff leadership from JobsOhio and Team NEO and Mayor David Smith of the Village of North Randall.
In addition, the GCP engaged with its long time partners at the Port of Cleveland, State of Ohio and Cuyahoga County, who will also provide key critical financing to the project.
“Amazon’s commitment to North Randall is a game changer for the Village and the region,” added Roman. “But we know the work is just beginning, and the GCP looks forward to building a strong and sustainable partnership with the company.”
The project has gained national attention as well with coverage from the New York Times and CNN.
