Excerpts with more details, from the Schpec's story on it:


Hamilton airport development launches with $30-million warehouse
Panattoni project marks major milestone in city’s vision for an Airport Employment Growth District

by Tom Hogue
The Hamilton Spectator
October 22, 2019

...

Developer Panattoni officially broke ground Tuesday on a $30-million warehouse it will build even though there is no tenant for the 264,535-square-foot space at 50 Aeropark Blvd.

It's a "speculative" investment, but not the first for the privately held property giant that has 320 million square feet of space across North America and Britain and a Rolodex of clients that includes Coca-Cola, Canadian Tire and Adidas.

"We're building it without a tenant because we've got confidence in the marketplace, we've got confidence in the city," said Panattoni executive vice-president Michael Smele, who noted that 80 per cent of its projects start with a similar build-it-and-they-will-come strategy.

...

Panattoni bought the 82-acre Aeropark site near Upper James Street and Dickenson Road West last year for $27 million with the intention of developing 1.6 million square feet in stages.

The first building is expected to be ready for occupancy in the fall of 2020 as a single warehouse with 44 truck bays or divided up into offices for as many as 200 staff.

Meanwhile, the next Aeropark building is expected to be four times the size of the first at more than 1 million square feet, and will be built in two phases.

...

Though Panattoni is just beginning to develop the 82-acre site, the company is nonetheless buying other property nearby. Smele announced Tuesday that the company is purchasing a 90-acre parcel of land across Dickenson in a $17-million deal expected to close in mid-November.

An unnamed developer is also expected to close a deal in January to buy 140 acres next door on Dickenson, according to Guy Paparella, director of growth planning for the city's Economic Development Department.

...

The next piece of the puzzle is managing truck traffic along Dickenson and around the new warehouse complex, where roughly six million square feet of development is planned between Panattoni and the unidentified developer next door.

To keep trucks off Upper James, an environmental assessment is underway to expand Dickenson to four lanes from two and extend it past Glancaster Road on a new, direct road to Book Road and the Highway 6 bypass.

wasn't this land meant to be advanced manufacturing use?. Cargo hangers and warehouses. At least I can be happy the single-home builders/ more sprawl like the east south mountain with a few townhouses/ seems to get the councillors AND STAFF recommendations excited to enough... and don't forget the committees that strike down a 8 story building at a GO Station. didn't get the deal. Warehouse/logistic jobs are at least jobs and not turn Hamilton into a bedroom town, with more traffic on the Linc & Chedoke Expressway to Mississauga's advanced manufacturing near their airport. NIMBYs rule the town. It wants to become a suburb of Toronto. Just another 905 suburb. Get it together you guys. BTW I'm moving to Bathurst and Bloor Feb 1 2020. Ditching the car.




this is how Canadian density looks like. You see the shots of Greek houses, this is Toronto. And I love it. I can walk and have a good bike. Starting work at Bathurst and College a 30 minute walk. A coffee and walk away.

The City's vision is warehouses.? I thought advanced manufacturing. The new seaport for Hamilton is the airport. Try for the Pharma companies around YYZ.

The City's land use plan calls for prestige industrial for the Aeropark lands. Light industrial is suppose to be further north.

An additional 1.24 million square feet allegedly in the pipeline.

Posting mainly for the photo, but looks like this may be opening sometime soon.


Is Hamilton’s Amazon warehouse open for business?
By Alessia Passafiume
The Hamilton Spectator
Tue., Sept. 21, 2021

https://www.thespec.com/business/202...nt-centre.html



From the outside, the new Amazon fulfilment centre on Upper James Street and Dickenson Road West looks mostly complete, with cars in the parking lot and a sign that says they’re hiring hanging on the front of the building.

What’s actually happening inside is unknown, though.

Amazon told The Spectator last summer the fulfilment centre would bring more than 1,500 jobs to the city — a boost after nearly 18,000 jobs were lost during the beginning months of the pandemic — but it’s unclear how many positions they’re looking to fill now.

Neither the developer of the warehouse, Panattoni Development Company, nor the City of Hamilton provided comments on what is happening inside or how far along construction is. Both parties directed The Spectator to contact Amazon, but despite days of trying, Amazon did not respond to multiple requests to discuss the happenings at the fulfilment centre.

Panattoni previously told The Spectator construction for the warehouse was expected to be completed in August of this year, with the rest of the development occurring in stages.

I live in one of the airport corridor and haven't seen any DHL aircraft in the sky yet. I guess with that official opening this might finally start?

They do come and go, have been for years, mostly at night. Also a lot of the flights are flown by Cargojet.
