Loblaw Companies Limited plans to build a 1.2 million square foot automated, multi-temperature distribution centre in the Greater Toronto Area of East Gwillimbury, Ontario. Completion is expected in the first quarter of 2024.
The facility is part of an industrial development project of 154 developable acres of industrial land in the area, with excellent access to major highways.
“This new facility reflects our continued drive to advance our supply chain to better serve our customers and meet their evolving needs,” says Robert Sawyer, COO, Loblaw. “This is also a strong demonstration of the benefits of our strategic relationship with Choice Properties.”
The development plan includes a multi-phase industrial park with the potential for approximately 1.8 million square feet of “new generation logistics space.”
