Amazon is making another large land grab in the Bay Area, this time in Pleasanton in an area filled with lakes and quarries, for a future "distribution center."

The Bay Area News Group reported Wednesday that the shopping behemoth purchased an undisclosed amount of land in East Pleasanton, bordering Shadow Cliffs Lake, Cope Lake and multiple, smaller quarries.

The deal between Amazon and the original owner of the land, a subsidiary of Lionstone Investments, cost around $75 million, according to documents obtained by the news organization. Documentation for the purchase was filed last Thursday.

Amazon purchased a 58.5 acre parcel of land, with plans to turn the land on Busch Road to a "distribution center" for last-mile deliveries or "middle mile sortation," an Amazon spokesperson told SFGATE.

She added, however, that plans for the land have yet to be finalized.
