Builder announces new commercial development at Trim and Hwy. 174

A massive commercial and residential development proposed for Hwy. 174 and Trim Road will create 450,000 sq. ft. of office space and up to 300 commercial and residential units, according to builder Brigil.

The Gatineau-based developer announced plans for the third phase of their Petrie Landing project on Thursday. The $300 million development will feature a six-storey, 300,000 sq. ft. office tower at its centre with a capacity for 2,100 jobs when fully leased.

The proposed development will also include a 64,000 sq. ft. banquet hall, a 200-unit apartment complex, and several other mix use buildings.

The announcement was being applauded by local politicians as the job creation catalyst the east end has been in need of for decades. What isn't clear is where the jobs will come from? As yet there are no confirmed tenants, however, Brigil is confident prospective tenants will come forward now that their plans have been made public.

Pending all the necessary approvals, construction could begin in either 2014 or early 2015.
