Groundbreaking Held for New Facility in Acton

HALTON HILLS, ON – Halton Hills will soon be home to a new, major development located at Futura Drive. The Panattoni Development Company broke ground this week on a 141,000 sq. ft. industrial building with leasing opportunities available in the latter half of 2023. The project represents a $35 million investment by the Panattoni Development Company that is expected to have positive spin-off economic benefits for the Acton community.

In attendance was Mayor Rick Bonnette, Councillors, Somerville, Albano and Brown. The Mayor thanked the company representatives for choosing to locate in Halton Hills and congratulated them on their ‘excellent choice’. “I am extremely pleased to welcome you to our Town,” he said. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship and continuing to develop our strong partnership with the Panattoni team well into the future.”

The industrial facility features state-of-the-art design and includes a 40’ clear height, 24 truck level doors, and outdoor storage. The building will accommodate approximately 100-200 employees creating the perfect home for manufacturing, warehousing or logistics type uses. 

“We at Panattoni are proud of the working relationship we have built with the staff at the Town of Halton Hills,” said Adam Lambros, Development Manager at Panattoni Development Company. “Together, we achieved Site Plan Approval and a full Building Permit for a 141,000 sq. ft. industrial facility in under one year. We look forward to the continued partnership as we build and secure a tenant for what is our first building in Halton Hills.”
