Windsor planning and zoning officials have approved plans for online retailer Amazon to build a distribution center.

The Journal Inquirer reports that Amazon might still decide against moving to Windsor or another Hartford area town. It pulled a tax abatement request last week.

A lawyer for Amazon said the company is considering several sites in Connecticut, but Windsor is the company's first choice.

KTR Capital Partners, a real estate private equity firm, also pulled its request for a 50 percent building fee reduction. KTR Senior Vice Partner John Bancroft said on Tuesday the company is still moving forward on its plans for Windsor.

Amazon ended a two-year dispute with Connecticut in February, agreeing to collect sales tax and to spend $50 million to build an order-fulfillment center.
