Amazon to Open Massive Multi-Level Distribution Warehouse in South Burnaby
As reported by Dustin Godfrey at Burnaby Beacon:
Canada’s first multi-storey industrial development, in Burnaby’s Riverbend business park, will be occupied by an Amazon distribution warehouse, according to city officials.
In fact, according to director of planning and building Ed Kozak, the facility will be “the primary Amazon distribution facility in Western Canada.”
The facility will be part of the Riverbend business park at Riverbend Drive and Wiggins Street in the Big Bend area. In all, the project will include three components, one of which being the Amazon facility.
Kozak told the planning and development committee last week that the Riverbend business park will include medium- to light-industrial uses. That includes cellcentric (BBOT member), a fuel-cell fabrication facility jointly owned by Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, and a linen supply facility.
