In October of 2021, the client reached out to Lloyd Copper Executive Vice Chairman and Paul Fredette Senior Vice President in Montreal to provide support in identifying and locating a 3PL company to accommodate a short-term solution to warehouse and handle local product manufactured in Montreal. As the file advanced, the request changed, and the focus was turned to providing a +/- 600,000 square foot distribution center to house both the hot and cold beverages for the client in the Greater Montreal Area.

Three sites were identified and ultimately the transaction was finalized with Jean-Marc Dubé, Executive Vice-President, Colliers International in Montreal, who represented a local developer, Oleadev Real Estate Group. Despite tight market conditions, all parties collaborated to provide favorable conditions for all parties involved.

Client Objectives:
  • Tenant was looing for 3PL services on short-term basis.
  • Tenant’s requirements changed to house more product.
  • The landlord’s objectives were accomplished by maximizing his site with a single tenant.
Transaction Profile:
  • Building will be 602,102 square feet with 40’ clear height and is certified C-TPAT.
  • Long term lease
  • Tenant was introduced to three different locations, all of which had different challenges

The relationship with Fredette, Cooper and Dube allowed for the communication to flow freely and accelerate the actual requirement. They provided a site option in which the landlord accepted to expand the building to deliver a large single tenant building as part of their spec plan.
