Chesterfield officials announced that Amazon will invest a total of $85 million and create 1,000 new jobs when it opens its new fulfillment center in the Meadowville Technology Park in Chester, VA. The 1 million-square-foot center will be in full operation for the holiday season this year.
This will be a huge economic boost for the county in many ways. For those of us in the real estate industry, we are hoping for a boost in the housing market in the Chester area as well. Neighborhoods such as Meadowville Landing, Mount Blanco, Riversbend and Ivystone subdivisions are great locations for possible Amazon employees who might be transferring to the area as a result of the new facility.
