GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB)–Lawyers for a developer behind what’s likely a new Amazon warehouse are meeting with Grand Island’s Town Board.
TC Buffalo Development filed its proposal last month. It doesn’t name Amazon directly.
Sources told News 4 a few months ago that developers bought the land on Long Road for a possible Amazon distribution center.
First on tonight’s agenda is “Project Olive.” Many believe this to be an alias for an Amazon warehouse.
Presenters with TC Buffalo Development describe the plans as a storage and distribution facility.
That facility, they say, would be run by an “e-commerce tenant for consumer goods.”
Developers say they still cannot confirm who the potential tenant is going to be, to which one board member responded: “So you can’t actually use the word ‘Amazon’ is what you’re saying?”
This project is still in the very early stages. Developers will meet with the town’s planning board next week for a presentation.
There will also be a public hearing scheduled for April 8. This will be the first opportunity for residents to discuss the project.
