October 17 - Hamilton Port Authority (HPA) has added a warehousing asset to its portfolio of logistics-focused real estate.

The 500,000 sq ft former Westinghouse plant features excellent road and rail access, ceiling heights up to nine storeys, and overhead cranes capable of handling up to 180 tonnes. This complex offers some of the heaviest crane capacity in southern Ontario. The acquisition increases HPA's warehouse space under roof from 2 million sq ft to 2.5 million sq ft.

The facility has indoor rail transload capabilities that are in high demand by manufacturers and other shippers. It is a strategic acquisition that the port authority says will help it attract new business, and also improve the service offering to existing customers/

The port authority is actively seeking new tenants that can make the best use of this space.
