Is Amazon behind ‘Project Rocket'?

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A mysterious economic development project code-named “Project Rocket” is advancing in Atlanta's suburbs.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the identity of the company seeking the massive distribution facility remains shrouded in secrecy. The story notes that e-commerce giant Amazon has reportedly been seeking an Atlanta-area site for a new fulfillment center.

Gwinnett County Planning Commission Chairman Chuck Warbington said he doesn't know who the tenant would be, but voted to recommend a special use permit anyway, calling it “an absolute game-changer for new investment.”

Plans for “Project Rocket” include more than 1,800 employee parking spaces outside a 2.5-million-square-foot facility with an 80-foot-tall building, 65 loading docks and 200 truck parking spaces.
