HALTON HILLS, ON – Today, Mayor Ann Lawlor was on site for a ‘construction kick-off event’ to celebrate Prologis’ new commercial real estate development and welcome the company to Halton Hills. Local and Regional Councillor Clark Somerville and Ward 2 Councillors Jason Brass and Joseph Racinsky were also in attendance.

Prologis is a leader in logistics real estate and has been a long-time business partner of the Toronto community. With 16 team members and 35 buildings, the company supports 55 companies daily doing business in Toronto. The company builds, owns and manages modern and sustainable logistics facilities that create good jobs, support businesses operating in the Toronto area and help deliver the goods residents and businesses need. This is Prologis’ first project in Halton Hills.

Called Prologis Halton Hills Gateway, the new development is located at 8111-8119 Trafalgar Road, on the north side of Steeles Avenue and directly across the street from the Toronto Premium Outlet mall. The site will feature three high-quality and sustainable buildings, offering an approximate total of 1.3 million square feet of space. The buildings will also achieve a sustainable building certification.

“This is a significant investment in Halton Hills,” said Mayor Lawlor, “I’m delighted to see this project come to fruition and construction starting. Prologis has been an excellent partner throughout the development process, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”

“We are excited to build in Halton Hills. More businesses are looking for modern logistics facilities that are well-located and this site’s proximity to major highways and the GTA will appeal to many of our customers,” said Bill Bolender, Country Manager for Prologis. “Construction will continue for the next year, and we are actively seeking tenants.”
