Amazon was seeking a footprint of approximately 1 million square feet within the Greater Toronto Area but were faced with an extremely constrained land supply that would meet their demands for a building completion in summer 2019.

Transaction Profile
  • 1.15 million square feet design build
  • 1,500 associate parking stalls
  • 15 year lease term
  • Largest building of its kind in the town of Caledon
  • Largest spec project in Canada in 2018


Colliers International, on behalf of Blackwood Partners and the Alberta Investment Management Corporation, presented a location close to the City of Toronto, as well as a construction strategy to ensure Amazon’s desired timeline was met. The Mayor of the Town of Celdon was directly involved in helping to facilitate the project's aggressive timeline
