Amazon signs another lease at Tempe office tower, plans to hire hundreds
Amazon.com Inc. is planning to hire an additional 550 people in Tempe and has already expanded its office footprint in a brand-new office tower there.
The e-commerce giant expanded its lease in 100 Mill, the office tower in Tempe being developed by Cousins Properties and Hines and is set to complete construction in the first quarter of 2022.
Amazon had previously pre-leased 95,000 square feet in the building, and announced Tuesday it had expanded by 63,000. The company plans to occupy the initial 95,000 square feet in the first half of 2022 and the expanded space in the second half of the year.
“Not only do Phoenix and Tempe have an incredible existing talent pipeline, but this is a place where people want to move to as well,” Doug Welzel, site lead for Amazon’s Phoenix Tech Hub, said in a statement. “We’ve experienced amazing growth over the last few years, creating jobs and economic opportunity for the wider community. We’ve already created more than 5,000 corporate and tech jobs in the Phoenix area, and we are excited to continue investing here.”
