Industrial Land Options around Cross Iron Mills Mall

May 6, 2011 by

Development begets more development as the saying goes.  Only a few years ago users considering the Balzac and East Balzac areas were considered “trail blazers”.  Now they are being hailed as “visionaries”.  The area just north of Stoney Trail on the north edge of the City of Calgary limits is now becoming a popular location for both retailers and industrial users in the Calgary Industrial market.  The Cross Iron Mills mall has popularized the area with the general public and industrial users such as Wal-mart who built a 400,000 square foot freezer/cooler building in Wagon Wheel Industrial Park have put the area on the map for users of industrial space in Calgary.  Now there are rumours of another major retailer buying 160 acres of High Plains Industrial Park which is being developed by Highfield Stock Farm and CLT Contracting with the intention of developing a major warehouse and distribution centre to service its store expansion in western Canada.  Click here to contact us for a copy of the area structure plan and marketing information on High Plains Industrial Park.

There are various other opportunities in the area including land that was originally owned by United Horsemen as part of a grand plan to bring horse racing to the area which is now controlled by various entities including United Farmers and Ivanhoe Cambridge.  We are currently working with United Farmers of Alberta in marketing a 22.67 acre parcel which is zoned for a wide range of commercial and industrial uses.  A number of other developers have land ready for industrial development including Hopewell Development Corporation, Centron Construction, Bentall Kennedy and Prism Developments amongst others.  You can click here to contact us for a detailed report of the land options in the area.
