Amazon warehouse project rises in Montgomery

Matt Stoddard, President of Ironworkers Local 417 explains that pre-cast walls are in place and structural steel is beginning to cover the shell around what eventually will be Amazon’s $75.2 million distribution center in the Town of Montgomery.
Construction on the 1,010,880-square foot facility at the intersection of Routes 747 and 17K will be the largest building in Orange County and is expected to be completed next fall.
The project will create 300 construction jobs, employ more than 800 people and over 15 years provide more than $25 million in phase-in taxes and additional revenue to aid education, emergency services and municipalities in the region. Amazon is required to use at least 85 percent local labor.
