Amazon Considering Opening a Distribution Center at Widett Circle
Able Company, LLC - the owner of the nearly 20-acre Widett Circle - are considering redevelopment of the site that will include an Amazon last-mile distribution center. Able Company purchased the site in June 2020 for $125,000,000.
Widett Circle is bound by Interstate 93, the South Boston Bypass Road and rail lines, and has been home to two dozen meat and seafood wholesalers for nearly 50 years. The City of Boston owns parcels adjacent to Widett Circle which, combined with the existing 20 acres, could sum to 50 acres of potential development. Any development at Widett Circle will require significant infrastructure investment and rezoning.
