Johnston Mayor Joseph Polisena Jr. and Sen. Jack Reed recently visited the town’s new Amazon distribution facility, which is expected to bring in $145 million in tax revenue over the next 20 years. The town is offering the retail giant a 20-year tax break to build the nearly 4-million-square-foot center, which is projected to employ over 1,500 full-time workers. Additionally, a new RIPTA bus stop will be installed near the facility, which is set to open sometime this summer. Photos of the facility, courtesy of Joseph Polisena Jr., can be seen below.
