Yes, Amazon plans to build a warehouse and distribution center in western Round Rock, Texas. The project was initially announced in October 2021, but was put on hold in May 2022 due to cost pressures. However, Amazon confirmed in October 2023 that it was resuming plans for the project. The application shows that the property located at 2801 CR 172, Round Rock, is the proposed site for a new Amazon warehouse and distribution center.
