Charlotte, NC. – The U.S. Postal Service confirmed to the Charlotte Business Journal yesterday that it plans to open a new facility in that county. Sources have told CBJ that USPS will occupy a building at Gateway85, NorthPoint Development’s 365-acre industrial park between Gastonia and Lowell. USPS is expected to take a completed building of over 620,000 square feet at the park.
“Beginning this summer and continuing through the next year, USPS will create a new modern multi-functional distribution center in Gaston County that will improve service reliability, enhance the employee experience, and reduce our carbon footprint,” USPS said in a statement to CBJ. “Our new holistic approach to mail and package processing and delivery will enhance responsiveness to customer demands and position the Postal Service to deliver for America long into the future. We look forward to sharing more updates as our progress in Gaston County advances.”
