Amazon distribution center identified for Medway/Holliston town line
MAPC says Holliston site is a planned

HOLLISTON - A report by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council has confirmed what many residents have feared: The massive development at 555 Hopping Brook in Holliston is a planned Amazon Distribution Center.
When developer CRG Integrated Real Estate Solutions started construction in the area last year, residents were told it would not be an Amazon facility, but according to a MAPC February report entitled “Hidden and in Plain Sight: Impacts of E-Commerce in Massachusetts,” the Holliston site is listed as a “planned” facility that would be between 1 million and 4 million square feet.
At a Planning Board hearing on March 18, CRG representatives described the building as 820,000 square feet and said "We don't know who the tenant is."
The proposed facility lies within the town lines of Holliston where it is making its way through the permitting process.
