CLAY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The proposed distribution center in the Town of Clay is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Wednesday, the Clay Town Board approved a zoning change for the Liverpool Golf and Country Club from a golf course to industrial area. That decision tees up Texas-based Developer Trammell Crow to go through with its plan to build a distribution center on the golf course that could bring a minimum of 1,000 jobs to the area in the first two years of operation.
The building would be around 3.7 million square feet and would be a $280 million investment by the company. Trammell Crow says the average pay of a worker at the facility would be around $30,000 a year and that up to 25 tractor-trailer trucks an hour would be coming to and from the facility from the Thruway.
Trammell Crow announced it would be planting 1,300 trees around the facility. It also wants to expand Morgan Road to five lanes to make turning into the facility easier. Trammell Crow would cover those costs.
Who will be taking over the building won’t be announced until construction begins, according to Trammell Crow.
