This isn't surprising news BTW, other than the formal confirmation. A lot of us had speculated "Project Rocket" was for an Amazon distribution center ever since they entered into the development agreement with Gwinett County during the HQ2 search.

The news is reporting that this will be a 700,000 sf facility, although earlier rumors were that it would be 2.5 million sf. That's what Gwinnett zoning approved. So maybe this thing will get bigger.

The one up on Hog Mountain Road is 850,000 sf.

I just had to laugh that Kemp used 3 idioms in a single partial sentence...

“stiff competition from our neighbors here in the Southeast on that, but we’re plugging away every day to keep moving the needle.”
