Online shopping with Amazon Prime took one step closer toward simplicity for Hawai´i residents last week.

Pacific Business News reported that the company has pulled permit applications to initiate site preparation for a delivery station in Honolulu, the first of its kind in the Hawaiian Islands.

The retail giant bought a 14-acre lot on Sand Island in 2020, which it intends to use to construct the new station. It was the largest land deal in the state during the course of that year, PBN said. Reports estimate the planned structure will measure upwards of 100,000 square feet in size when construction is completed.
