FedEx plans to build $259 million distribution center in Greenwood
GREENWOOD, Ind. – FedEx plans to build a $259 million distribution center in Greenwood.
The city’s redevelopment commission recommended Tuesday that the city council approve $17.2 million in tax abatements for the facility.
The center would employ 80 full-time workers at an average hourly wage of $24.55 per hour and 375 part-time workers at an average hourly wage of $14.24.
FedEx plans to construct the 608,000-square-foot facility along the east side of I-65, north of the Worthsville Rd. exit near Graham Rd.
Officials expect to begin construction on the project in the spring and finish in June of 2020.
FedEx would pay $29.8 million in real and personal property taxes over the 10 years.
Indianapolis is already home to the company’s second largest shipping hub. Over 700 full-time and 3,000 part-time workers are employed there.
