1 Million-SF Amazon Fulfillment Centre Headed for Ottawa

Broccolini Tapped to Build Facility for Seattle-based Online Giant
July 10, 2018
Amazon is planning a fulfillment centre in the Canadian capital that will be larger than 1 million square feet, said the Canadian company chosen to build it.

Montreal-based Broccolini disclosed it had been picked by the Seattle-based online e-commerce giant to develop 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 once operational, Broccolini said in a release.

James Beach, Broccolini's director of real estate and business development, said his company expects to break ground on the project later this summer. In addition to its role as builder and developer of the fulfillment centre, Broccolini will also act as landlord and property manager.

"Amazon will benefit from our considerable and diversified expertise to coordinate all development and construction aspects from the outset through to delivery, as well as Broccolini's management experience that comes with its impressive portfolio and properties," said Beach, in a statement.

Broccolini provides construction, development and management services for industrial, commercial, and residential buildings and its real estate division now owns and manages a portfolio of more than 40 properties, representing a total of over 6 million square feet of assets.
