? Amazon is adding a 1,000-job fulfillment center in Kansas City, Kan.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas City, Kan., Mayor Mark Holland confirmed Monday that the e-commerce powerhouse will occupy an 856,000-square-foot industrial building. It is expected to open in late 2017 near Interstate 70.

The Kansas City Star reports that the developer asked for a tax abatement in June and said an “online sales fulfillment business” would be the tenant. However, the company was not publicly identified then.

In March, Amazon announced a similar center in Edgerton. Amazon now has five facilities in Kansas. Brownback says the Kansas City, Kan., center shouldn’t affect them. The company decided in 2014 to close a facility in Coffeyville.

The new center will feature classrooms to help employees earn their associate degrees.
