NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Nashville Yards towers aren’t even complete, but Amazon is continuing to show its investment in Nashville.

Amazon has plans to build a massive shipping hub in the 100 Oaks area. The main goal of this facility will be to get out same-day deliveries and Prime Now online orders.

Last year, Amazon paid nearly $23 million for the old Harry’s frozen food warehouse on Armory Drive. They kept quiet for a while about what the plans were for the site, but new files to the Metro Board of Zoning show that a central shipping hub is in the works.

Amazon plans to demolish the existing building and construct their own 200,000 square foot warehouse. It’s a move that would bring 170 additional jobs to Nashville.

This shipping hub will be in addition to its existing locations in La Vergne, north Nashville and Mt. Juliet. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
