Amazon Picks NECCO site in Revere….

Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo announced Amazon will be opening a distribution center in the former Necco factory near Revere Beach Parkway in the city.

“Amazon’s historic investment in our community will invigorate our local economy and promote the city of Revere as a place where prominent, innovation driven businesses are welcome and can thrive,” Arrigo wrote on his official Facebook page.

The distribution center will employ 600 to 800 people and is expected to open by spring 2020, Arrigo told Banker & Tradesman. Revere has not offered the developers or Amazon any financial incentives, Arrigo said.

The company estimates its investment in capital improvements at $30 million to $40 million, he said.

An Amazon spokesman said the facility will serve the e-commerce giant’s last-mile delivery services in the Suffolk County area, including the use of independent contractors delivering for Amazon Flex.

Amazon has not indicated the estimated vehicle trips generated by the operation, but will submit a traffic management plan to the city, Arrigo said

Amazon has not indicated the estimated vehicle trips generated by the operation, but will submit a traffic management plan to the city, Arrigo said.

“What they’ve talked about is they have waves of deliveries that happen over the course of a day, with an interest in off-peak hours if there is such a thing now,” he said.

Amazon’s arrival will renew the city’s push for a new MBTA commuter rail station on the Rockport line which runs past the property, Arrigo said.
