Randall Park Mall, which is currently sitting vacant, is being transformed into an Amazon Fulfillment Center. 

The mall has been vacant since 2009. The Board of Directors of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority met on Thursday to review and approve a request to redevelop the area.

By transforming the property into an Amazon Fulfillment Center, at least 1,200 new full-time jobs will be created in Northeast Ohio. The Port Authority has committed $123 million in taxable lease bonds to create the 855,000 square foot fulfillment center. 

A timeline for the project has not been released to the public.
