KENOSHA - Even more jobs will be coming to Kenosha after Amazon announces another big expansion.

The internet giant said they would build a one million square foot warehouse back in October. Now they say they'll make the complex even larger with a second building.
 
Kenosha's Mayor Keith Bosman said he's happy but not surprised with the news.
 
"I think we're placed very well here between Chicago and Milwaukee." He said.
 
About 1,700 new positions are expected to be created. The first warehouse is expected to be up and running around December, 2014.
