MA: Amazon Opens Massive, 5-Story, 3.8-Million-Sq.-Ft. Warehouse, Distribution Facility in North Andover

May 17, 2024

Amazon officially opened its largest facility in Massachusetts – a five-story, 3.8 million square foot e-commerce storage, warehouse, and distribution facility in North Andover, which cost more than $400 million to build and is expected to employ more than 1,500 people.

The project, which sits on approximately 110 acres at the rear of the Osgood Landing site, was enabled by Town Meeting voters who approved zoning changes and a 10-year tax increment financing agreement (TIF) valued at approximately $27 million. The build is expected to provide the Town with about $85 million in new revenue over 20 years.  

Additionally, the Town negotiated a community benefits agreement with Amazon, which provides money for related projects and infrastructure upgrades.

The facility is Amazon’s first highly automated warehouse in Massachusetts, which employs three distinct types of robots that are intended to take over menial, monotonous, and repetitive jobs.
