East Gwillimbury welcomed the announcement from Loblaw Companies Limited and Choice Properties REIT that they are building an advanced logistics and distribution centre on Woodbine Avenue, just north of Green Lane East at the Rice Group development site. This project is the largest employment development project in the Town’s history.
In a news release issued earlier today, Loblaw Companies Limited and Choice Properties REIT announced they are building a 1.2 million sq. ft distribution centre. Loblaw is an industry leading employer with a commitment to environmental and social initiatives. The distribution centre will bring more than 1000 jobs to the community and generate more than $500,000 in municipal taxes annually. The community will also benefit from $7 million in development charges that will be used to build roads and sewers, community centres, parks, playgrounds, trails, and other community amenities. York Region school boards will also generate approximately $1.5 million in revenue from the project.
