Panattoni created the Northview Business Park with the belief that industry would locate on the boundary of the city limits of Edmonton if there was the opportunity to realize significantly lower occupancy costs. This belief was validated by Navistar’s selection of Panattoni’s Northview Business Park for its Western Canadian distribution centre. The building measures 158,000 sq. ft. and the site allows for the building to be expanded by 40,000 sq. ft.. Panattoni competed for this project with local Edmonton developers who introduced Navistar to sites within the city limits. Panattoni’s success was based on several key factors in addition to the lower operating cost advantage afforded by Northview Business Park’s location. Other important factors included Panattoni’s enviable track record of constructing quality facilities and of completing projects on time and on budget.
