MAMMOTH UNDERTAKING: The six-story retail distribution facility’s ground floor will ultimately cover approximately 823,522 square feet, and the facility will eventually cover a total area of approximately 3,864,972 square feet.

RIBBON CUTTING? According to Caitlin McLaughlin, Amazon Public Relations New England, the facility’s completion date is scheduled for the “second half of 2023.” The $290 million project is visible from points across the region, as crews work through the night.

    Ominous? During the days when America became economically great which did more to improve living conditions, medicine, etc. than anything before it, such commercial infrastructure was seen as valuable progress! And today, this economic infrastructure is built to efficiency, environmental, and health standards as well.

    What is "ominous" about this?
