ROSEDALE -- A groundbreaking is scheduled tomorrow on a 1.5-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution center that could bring up to 1,500 jobs to a corner of the county that has lost thousands of jobs in the past 20 years.

United Parcel Service had planned to build its distribution center on the site near the Baltimore Beltway and Pulaski Highway, but changed its plans more than a year ago. In February, the company announced that its property subsidiary would build the $30 million Marshfield Business Park for other users.

Hoping the project will boost efforts to revive the Eastside, the county is spending $1.3 million to extend Kelso Drive to the UPS site and has included the project in its new enterprise zone, which allows manufacturers certain tax breaks.
