KINGSTON — An 800,000-square-foot warehouse distribution center is being proposed at the former Sears Logistics Center site on Route 125. 

The project, proposed by 266 Route 125 LLC, will be back before the town’s Planning Board on Jan. 18 for site plan review.

The proposed warehouse will be located near the Brentwood-Kingston town line and just south of the Rockingham County Superior Court.

While there has been speculation in the community that it might be an Amazon facility, Amazon spokesperson Nikki Forman said last week they are not pursuing a site in Kingston. 

Negotiations for the project first started with the town in 2018.

Kingston Conservation Commission Chair Evelyn Nathan said the project calls for the flattening of 100 acres of woodland with “steel, concrete and asphalt.” The piece of property is “tucked into” Little River, a tributary of the Exeter River, which provides drinking water for the town of Exeter.
