Online retailing giant Amazon is planning to build a new warehouse in Ottawa, CBC News reported, citing two members of Parliament.

In an interview with CBC News, Orléans MP Andrew Leslie confirmed that the online retailer plans to create a giant warehouse on 5371 Boundary Rd., near Highway 417.

An application submitted to the city discloses that the facility will be over 1 million square feet and require 99 truck bays and more than 1,000 parking spaces.

“It will employ approximately 1,000 people, good middle class jobs, and it’s going to be a transportation hub,” Leslie was quoted as saying. “We have been working with Amazon for a couple of months now and we are just thrilled that it’s all coming to maturation.”
