Fox business to interview Robbinsville mayor about Amazon warehouse

Dave Fried, the mayor of Robbinsville, will appear on Fox Business Network to discuss the announcement of the 1.2 million square foot warehouse by, according to a press release.

The release said Fried will be on the air around 1 p.m. Thursday to discuss the development, which will employ about 700 people once it opens next year.

The warehouse, one of two planned for New Jersey, has been in the works for months, with Robbinsville competing against municipalities from across the state. As part of enticing the online commerce giant to the town, Robbinsville worked out a deal with the owner of the proposed property over taxes.

The owner, KTR Capital Partners, will pay about $14 million instead of property taxes for the next 20 years, as part of an estimated $22.1 million in taxes the project will bring in, according to the press release announcing the project.

Fried said Tuesday that the warehouse will generate more job than the 700 employed at the warehouse itself in construction, transportation and other industries.
