Amazon Canada lands site for Montreal facility

Amazon Canada will expand in Quebec with a new facility in the east end of Montreal, Le Journal de Montréal reports. Developer Broccolini, a regular real estate partner of the e-retail giant, has purchased a 2.5 million-square-foot site straddling Montreal’s Anjou district and the separate city of Montréal-Est.

Neither Broccolini nor Amazon would confirm the specific plans for the site, part of a former Shell refinery. Le Journal de Montréal noted however that the lease was signed by Amazon Canada Fulfillment Services, the company’s delivery subsidiary.
