The Amazon Fulfillment Center will be built near Central and Orange. Amazon is expected to hire about 1,500 workers with wages starting at around $15 an hour with benefits.

The facility will ship books, toys and electronics from Fresno. Construction of the nearly one-million square foot center is expected to take about a year.
