Whiteland Developers recently broke ground at the BrookPort Business Park in CentrePort Canada, Manitoba, for a CAD 19 million distribution center with an area of 100,000 square meters.
Nutrien, one of the world’s largest providers of plant support and services, will move into the facility after construction is completed in the fourth quarter of 2021, CentrePort Canada officials said in a press release.
“Nutrien has signed a long-term lease with Whiteland for this design-build facility and we look forward to seeing you later this year,” said Sam Sidhu, President of Whiteland Developers.
Park-based companies have access to rail links from Canadian Pacific, CN, and BNSF Railway Co.
Since autumn 2018, Whiteland has launched two fully managed industrial parks in CentrePort: BrookPort Business Park and InksPort Business Park.
BrookPort was launched in two phases, both of which will be sold in full. Thirteen companies, including anchor tenant Merit Functional Foods, are operating or have facilities under construction in the park.
CentrePort Canada is North America’s largest trimodal inland port.
