Montreal-based developer Broccolini plans to construct the largest distribution center in southeast Ottawa, a city site plan application shows.
The 1.02-million-sq.-ft. facility will have 100 truck loading bays and ceiling heights of between 36 and 38 feet at the interchange of Highway 417 and Boundary Rd.
The new structure would be constructed on a 96-acre parcel of land on the east side of Boundary Rd., just south of GreyHawk Golf Club.
“Ottawa is a good market, (with) low industrial vacancy rates,” James Beach, Broccolini’s director of real estate and development, was quoted as saying in the Ottawa Business Journal. “This investment in Ottawa is consistent with the increasing demand for large facilities of this nature that we’ve seen in the GTA and Montreal area.”
