Walgreens, the second largest pharmacy chain in the country, is planning a 52,000-square-foot facility in Brooklyn Park that officials say would significantly speed up delivery of customer prescriptions. The facility, which would use state-of-the-art robotics technology, would be located at 10695 Winnetka Avenue, just east of Highway 169. The project was initially dubbed 'Project Nucleus' until the company agreed to unveil its name at Monday night's Brooklyn Park City Council meeting. Officials with Walgreens say the facility would process about 300 prescriptions per hour compared to 300 in a day at a regular pharmacy.
