TOWN OF NIAGARA, N.Y. (WKBW) — A three-million-square-foot Amazon distribution warehouse is coming to the Town of Niagara.

The town's board approved the $300 million Amazon project Tuesday night.

The facility will be built on 216 acres of land along Lockport Road, and board members believe it will lead to more than 300 construction jobs and over a thousand new Amazon employee positions for the Town of Niagara.

Town Board approval was one of the final steps before Amazon could move forward with construction. The project proposal now heads to the Niagara County Center for Economic Development for public hearing on August 3.

The NCIDA will vote on August 10.

Over the past seven months, Amazon received approval from the County Planning Board, the Town of Niagara Planning Board and the Town Zoning Board.
