REVERE, MA–Revere Mayor Brian M. Arrigo announced that Amazon will open its newest delivery station at the site previously occupied by the Necco candy company, creating hundreds of part-time and full-time jobs in one of the most significant commercial developments in Revere’s history.
Amazon will invest in renovations to the building at 135 American Legion Highway and house its Greater Boston delivery station under a lease arrangement with property owners Atlantic Management and V.M.D. Companies, LLC.
After Atlantic and V.M.D. acquired the 50-acre property in April 2017, Mayor Arrigo collaborated with the new owners and championed zoning legislation that restricted the property’s use to advanced commercial activity, including technology warehousing and e-commerce. The building, containing approximately 830,000 square feet, became vacant in September of 2018, when Necco abruptly ended operations after 15 years at the location.
