CLAY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Onondaga County Executive doesn’t want to “jinx anything” by naming specific companies possibly coming to the proposed warehouse in the Town of Clay.

On Thursday, Ryan McMahon told NewsChannel 9’s Andrew Donovan, “We believe it’s one of the top three or four e-commerce companies in the world. It’s one of those companies. Hopefully, we’ll be talking about that and maybe we’ll be talking about it before the end of the year.”

Whether it’s Amazon, Walmart, Apple or someone else, the tenant of the warehouse is the next logical question now that the Town of Clay Board approved changing the zoning at the Liverpool Country Club from recreational to industrial.

The town’s zoning and planning boards will meet separately next week to discuss smaller requests for the project, but most of the hard work is out of the way for construction.

McMahon also confirms to NewsChannel 9 that Trammell Crow, the company that will build the warehouse and recruit a tenant, has paid the Onondaga County Industrial Development Agency a second check for $500,000, bringing its total commitment to the project to $1 million.

“That’s a very good sign they’re very confident they have a company ready to sign the deal,” McMahon says.
