Massive Amazon Fulfillment Centre Headed for Ottawa

Amazon is planning a satisfaction centre in the Canadian capital that will be bigger than one million square feet, said the Canadian business chosen to develop it.

Montreal-based Broccolini divulged it had actually been chosen by the Seattle-based online e-commerce giant to establish a built-to-suit fulfillment centre in Ottawa that is being fast-tracked to open in 2019. It will become the largest industrial facility ever to be constructed in the National Capital Region, and will create more than 600 new full-time jobs when operational, Broccolini stated in a release.

James Beach, Broccolini’s director of real estate and company development, stated his company anticipates to break ground on the project later on this summer season. In addition to its function as contractor and designer of the fulfillment centre, Broccolini will also act as property manager and property supervisor.

“Amazon will take advantage of our considerable and diversified competence to coordinate all development and building and construction elements from the beginning through to delivery, as well as Broccolini’s management experience that comes with its excellent portfolio and residential or commercial properties,” said Beach, in a statement.

Broccolini offers construction, development and management services for commercial, commercial, and residential buildings and its realty department now owns and handles a portfolio of more than 40 homes, representing a total of over six million square feet of assets.
