In the face of stiff opposition from local officials, unions and environmental groups, the Port Authority of NY/NJ announced Thursday it has ended negotiations with Amazon to develop a 250K SF global air freight terminal at Newark-Liberty International Airport.

Amazon responded to an RFP in August with a proposal to spend $125M to redevelop two aging cargo warehouses on the north side of the airport, creating a new cargo hub along with 1,000 new jobs. The Port Authority was offering a 20-year lease for the new cargo hub.
