GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) — An Indianapolis suburb expects to gain more than 450 full- and part-time jobs from a FedEx Corp. distribution center.
The Greenwood Redevelopment Commission recommended Tuesday that the city’s Common Council approve $17 million in tax abatements for the $259 million project along Interstate 65 south of Indianapolis.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports the center would employ 80-full-time workers at an average hourly wage of $24.55 per hour and 375 part-time workers at an average hourly wage of $14.24.
Construction is expected to begin next spring and finish in June 2020.
Memphis-based FedEx’s second largest shipping hub is in Indianapolis, where it employs more than 700 full-time and 3,000 part-time workers.
