Dollar Tree Distribution Center Proves Massive as Building Takes Shape

As the walls of Dollar Tree's 1-million-square-foot distribution center off of Rainbow Road go up, it has become crystal clear exactly how big a 1-million-square-foot building is.

One million square feet of concrete sound large when presented as a blue print, but the materialization of such a building has changed the landscape of Windsor's Rainbow section as Dollar Tree's distribution center looks to impress in size and revenue to the town.

By comparison, Dollar Tree's distribution center is larger than some of the most-widely known buildings in the region.

When complete, the distribution center will encompass 1 million square feet (not including space needed for parking) of space and will tower roughly 40 feet tall.

Fenway Park's green monster stands just over 37 feet tall.

Rentschler Field, the football home of the UConn Huskies, comes in at just under 600,000 square feet, including the field and seats in the stadium.

What do you think of the distribution center's size? Is it bigger than you imagined?
