CNN reports the plan includes 65 rooms which will house over 200 homeless individuals each night.
Amazon is partnering with local nonprofit Mary’s Place for the shelter.
“Mary’s Place does incredible, life-saving work every day for women, children, and families experiencing homelessness in the Seattle community,” Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement. “We are lucky to count them as neighbors and thrilled to offer them a permanent home within our downtown Seattle headquarters.”
The new Mary’s Place shelter is slated to open in 2020.
