Amazon signed a long-term, 211,000-square-foot lease at the site, known as Brooklyn Logistics Center, in November 2020. Wildflower purchased the two neighboring warehouses for $23.5 million in 2019, according to property records. The warehouse at 12555 Flatlands is formerly a PepsiCo distribution center. 

Representatives for CBRE Investment Management, CBRE Group and Amazon did not immediately return requests for comment. Wildflower declined to comment.

Wildflower is Amazon’s most active e-commerce warehouse and parking developer in New York City. The developer is in the midst of selling off its self-storage portfolio to narrow its focus on the e-commerce and film studio sectors.
