City of St. Albert Announces New 600,000 SF Distribution Centre Development
The City of St. Albert and QuadReal Property Group are pleased to announce the development of a 600,000 square foot distribution facility for the exclusive use of Uline, North America’s leading shipping supply specialist, at Anthony Henday Business Park (AHBP) in St. Albert. The project will break ground in 2020 and will welcome nearly 100 employees when the facility opens in 2021.
“This is a significant indication of confidence in St. Albert and we are pleased to welcome Uline to our community,” says Mayor Cathy Heron. “It signals that municipal investment in infrastructure will reward us with new businesses, diversified economy and help us achieve our desired taxation split.”
Uline is the leading distributor of shipping, industrial and packaging materials to businesses throughout North America. It is a family-owned company with a focus on providing excellent service, significant inventory and quality products. Uline offers same-day shipping on over 37,500 products from their 812-page catalog and state-of-the-art eCommerce website.
“QuadReal is thrilled to welcome Uline to AHBP,” says Carly Zapernick Manager of Development at QuadReal Property Group. “We worked closely with Uline to develop a unique property to meet their needs—not only for their Western Canada distribution centre. We look forward to further collaboration with companies of this calibre to fuel future industrial and commercial development both here in St. Albert and throughout the region.”
“We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the vibrant and bustling community of St. Albert,” says Branch Manager of Uline, Paul Symonds. “We look forward to opening the new facility, and remain committed to investing in our employees, facilities and technology to support our growing customer base.”
