ATLANTIC CITY, NJ-The US Postal Service has launched anadvertising campaign to find the right site for its proposed newfacility here, a highly automated complex that would include 22,000sf of distribution and carrier space and a 6,000-sf retail unit, orabout 28,000 sf altogether. Advertising for a site is required bythe federal government, and postal officials hope to have aprospective site lined up by the end of January.

The new facility would replace the current 26,000-sf facilitythat dates back to the late 1930s. What the Post Office is lookingfor is a site in the vicinity of about 2.5 acres.

Both the city and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority(CRDA) are said to have a hand in the project. Indeed, the latterlast year approved some $4.7 million in funding toward a new postoffice and redevelopment of the existing facility's site as aparking garage for the adjacent Sands Casino Hotel. However, localpostal officials say the Sands portion of the project is not afactor in the current site search.
