Though town officials have been closed-mouth about the project, a recent article in La Presse reports the construction of an Amazon warehouse/distribution centre in the Alta Industrial Park in Coteau-du-Lac. Currently under construction by the Broccolini firm, the structure will occupy 500,000 square-feet of land. Additional plans are in place to expand the nearby Canadian Tire Distribution Centre, originally constructed by Broccolini in 2004, by 322,000 square-feet.
Développement Vaudreuil-Soulanges shared the story on their Facebook page January 9, adding they were happy to participate in the growth of logistic activities in the region.
“The MRC's positioning in the Ontario-Quebec trade corridor, the intersection of three highways and the presence of two national railways, make it a privileged location,” the post continued. “Moreover, Vaudreuil-Soulanges has some 600 companies generating 6,000 jobs in the logistics sector.”
