Just minutes from the Golden Ears Bridge, located at the south end of Harris Road, Golden Ears Business Centre (GEBC) is gaining serious momentum.
In addition to leasing more than 80 per cent of the first speculative building, Onni Developments has just announced two new transactions, adding more than 250,000 square feet to Pitt Meadows industrial base.
Both of these tenants, one a manufacturing company, the other a distribution company, will be relocating to the GEBC in 2013 from Metro Vancouvers Tri Cities region. Its expected that these two companies alone will bring an impressive 200 plus jobs in Pitt Meadows.
In a recent conversation with prospective tenants, the Pitt Meadows Economic Development Corp. (PMEDC) is hearing that tenants are attracted to the GEBC because theyre able to find considerable space under one roof in a single location.
A second reason is the ability to custom build the space. Build-to-suit versus retrofitting a property definitely has its advantages and most importantly allows companies to save on costs and increase efficiencies from the get-go.
Pitt Meadows and the GEBC offer potential tenants first class buildings, strategic location within Metro Vancouver, pro business environment, flexible building layouts and multiple bay sizes to accommodate every user from local business to multi-national companies.
The initial building, Building 100, a total of 76,000 square feet of small and mid-bay space, is 80 per cent leased and has attracted the following light industrial companies: Winston-Roland, Atlas Copco, Amerisis, Canamix Processing Systems, Total Cart Management, Jack 4 Trade, Tireland, and Slater Industrial Supply. Combined, these companies have created approximately 30 plus new jobs in Pitt Meadows.
According to the developer, Onni Group of Companies, the GEBC is the most versatile and unique park in the Lower Mainland.
It can accommodate every light industrial user needing from 5,000 square feet to 1,500,000 square feet. GEBC is currently the largest industrial development in Metro Vancouver.
The PMEDC looks forward to continued calls about the light industrial investment opportunities at GEBC and the opportunity for even more individuals to live, work and play all within 15 minutes from home.
