Amazon set to open “Last Mile” distribution center in Danbury this fall.

DANBURY, CT – Just three years after Mayor Mark Boughton’s video plea went viral, Amazon decided to give Danbury a second look. This fall, Amazon will be repurposing the former Scholastic Corporation on Old Sherman Turnpike into a Last Mile Distribution Facility.

“We are so excited to bring Amazon here to the City of Danbury,” said Mayor Boughton. “We anticipate at least 400 new jobs and several opportunities for Danbury residents. This is a huge economic opportunity for the city and will generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax revenue.”

“The City of Danbury was an absolute pleasure to work with on this project, everyone in City Hall and those on the various boards made the entire process very simple in a very complicated time. In all my experience with entitlements throughout the State of CT, I have never worked with a municipality that has been so fair and moved at such an efficient pace,” said Phil DiGennaro, managing member for Sound Development Group. “It is always satisfying to be a part of revitalization and redevelopment. In this case, transforming an older asset into a state of the art facility for today’s environment.” Phil DiGennaro is a property owner of the facility.
