JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) - WDRB is learning that Amazon will be opening up in Jeffersonville, Indiana in less than a month with a thousand new jobs. Plus, there is even more growth expected for the River Ridge Commerce Center.
What could be even bigger news than Amazon opening, is that other big corporations have been eyeing the River Ridge Commerce Center for possible development.
If you think it looks big from the outside, just wait until you go inside. You are looking at 28 acres under one roof. "Uhhh, it's big!" laughed Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore.
The inside is off limits to the media, but Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore got a tour this week. "I think there are 78 garage doors in the facility, 15 full bathrooms," said Moore.
Applications were taken earlier this summer, and Moore says about 1,000 jobs will soon be filled, and even more jobs later on.
"Exciting part is I believe they're set to open up for business October 1. I know they're in the hiring process now. Been a lot of good news for some local people around here looking for jobs for some time."
But the growth for Jeffersonville doesn't stop there. Amazon was just the first big fish to bite.
"The East End Bridge is the catalyst that started it all," said Moore.
Construction will soon begin on the East End Bridge, which will ultimately connect to the River Ridge Commerce Center. The location is appetizing to other large corporations, interested in moving to Jeffersonville. "I can't say any names," Moore explained. He cannot spill the beans yet, because nothing is concrete.
"I don't know if there's anybody bigger than Amazon but there's some companies out there talking about huge job creation. And Jeffersonville seems to be the city that a lot of these big corporate companies are looking at," said Moore.
But the meeting with the mayor left on this note: "Just keep watching, cause there's more to come in Jeff," Moore said.
The River Ridge Commerce Center still has a long way to go there are plenty of lots left and even suites that are ready to be moved into.
