Crews continue to assemble sections of walling for Amazon's new 800,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Kent this week.

Approximately 1,000 massive concrete slabs provide the exterior to the Amazon's fourth fulfillment center in the state.

The shipping center – in the Stryker Business Center at the corner of South 208th Street and 59th Place South – will store more than one million units of various small products, from books and games to electronics and accessories.

Amazon officials expect the center to be finished by 2015.
