CALGARY- A Vancouver developer has his sights set on transforming an empty Calgary warehouse into a new business centre.
The former Haworth building is the largest manufacturing site in western Canada, at a sprawling 750,000 square feet. However, it has sat empty near the Foothills Industrial Park for the last four years.
Now, Hungerford Properties is putting the final touches on a multi-million dollar plan to refurbish the site that’s now called Icon Business Park.
“It’s an iconic building in the city, it has a strong history and a proud history,” says Michael Hungerford. “It was developed about 14 years ago, and in its day it was state of the art, one of the best buildings of its kind in North America.
“It’s more than just a building, it’s a campus. It has amenities, it really is a fantastic class A building.”
Logistics and manufacturing will make up the majority of the new centre, and an open house will be held in February to show off the plans.
The project should be completed by summer.
