Report: Work to begin on site of giant Amazon warehouse in Montgomery
MONTGOMERY (AP) - Work is reportedly set to begin on the site of a massive Amazon warehouse in the Hudson Valley.

The Times Herald-Record reports that nearly 190 acres of trees in the Town of Montgomery will start being cut down on Tuesday after the $75.2 million project was granted a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement.

The warehouse 50 miles north of New York City will be one of the company’s more than 75 fulfillment centers across the country. The roughly 1 million-square-foot warehouse will house bulky items such as patio furniture and outdoor equipment.

Officials say the warehouse will create more than 800 jobs within two years of completion and 300 construction jobs.

Local officials granted a $20.5 million tax break on Friday.
