Amazon considering redesign of planned North Haven distribution center

Amazon has approval to build an 855,000 square-foot warehouse and distribution center at 415 Washington Ave. (Route 5) that would yield 1.2 million square feet in floor space to ceiling. The investment in the land and construction is estimated to be about $129 million and the personal property, including robotics, is estimated to add $130 million, according to town records. But the retail giant is taking a second look at its plans and is contemplating a 655,000-square-foot redesign that would yield 1 million square feet in space. Part of the redesign includes adding refrigeration components, said First Selectman Michael Freda.
