Hebron, Ky. – Wayfair Inc., an online home furnishings and decor retailer, is building a 898,560 s.f. facility adjacent to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).
Dermody Properties, a national industrial development company, and Hillwood Investment Properties will develop the facility on a 52-acre site. The facility, known as LogistiCenterSM at 275, will be one of the largest developments in the region and the largest speculative development in the history of CVG. Paul Hemmer Company is the general contractor on the project. Construction is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2016.
The new fulfillment facility will complement Wayfair’s current distribution center in Hebron, allowing the company to increase its distribution capacity.
“We are pleased to expand our footprint in northern Kentucky as we increase our distribution capacity to accommodate the rapid growth of our business,” said Nicholas Malone, Wayfair chief administrative officer. “We look forward to creating local jobs as we build our fulfillment and service teams in northern Kentucky. Our new, state-of-the-art facility and the ability to tap into the region’s strong talent pool will help us deliver on the Wayfair promise of an exceptional, ecommerce shopping experience in the home space.”
