Cornwall Economic Development will once again be showcasing local development opportunities to attendees at the PM Expo in Toronto.
“The show attracts a diverse group of people including developers, real estate professionals and investors,” said Bob Peters, senior development officer. “The Cornwall booth is typically busy, and we meet a lot of people that are interested in learning more about the city, including people who are considering relocating.”
PM Expo takes place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, next week.
Cornwall development opportunities will be exhibited at the show, including available commercial buildings and greenfield development sites in the Cornwall Business Park. Cornwall has a number of advantages when it comes to building and development, not the least of which is the fact that the city does not have development charges.
Development Opportunities Brochure
These investment opportunities are profiled in a brochure entitled Development Opportunities in the City with a World of Possibilities. The brochure has been updated and expanded for the 2012 show.
Each year, a number of Cornwall contractors and business professionals attend the show to learn about new products and best practices in their industry. Cornwall Economic Development provides free passes to the show for people interested in attending.
With over 1,050 exhibits and a robust series of seminars that feature over 450 speakers, PM Expo typically attracts about 25,000 attendees. The show is held concurrently with Construct Canada, HomeBuilder & Renovator Expo, Concrete Canada, DesignTrends and the National GreenBuilding Conference.
Cornwall Construction Activity
2012 is shaping up to be a very busy construction year in Cornwall, with a number of major development projects currently underway.
These include the completion of the new 1.3 million sq.ft. distribution centre for Target, new residential projects, commercial plazas and downtown revitalization projects.
Public sector projects include the ongoing construction of a new international bridge, the redevelopment of the Cornwall Community Hospital and a $55 million wastewater treatment plant upgrade.
