Amazon has long provided delivery of large products such as televisions to couches, and we’re excited to continue expanding this offer- ing to customers in the Denver metro area. We expect this site to open in 2020,” an Amazon spokesperson said. First Industrial Commerce Center is a 1.9 million-sf indus- trial park being developed by First Industrial Realty Trust Inc.
