Border Business Park

Since breaking ground in 2012, the Border Business Park in the west end of Nisku is underway.

Tom Eger, with WAM Developments was at the Feb. 3 Leduc County meeting to update the progress thus far, “We’re re-ally quite excited about what we’ve initiated,” he said.

Located between 41 and 36 Ave. along the Nisku Spine Road, WAM has 450 acres it wants to turn into a business park. Eger said with the completion of the four-laning of the Nisku Spine Road and the future 101 St. intersections, Border Business Park, “it really will be at the crossroads of the County of Leduc.”

To date, Red L Distributors is building a 99,000 square foot facility, as is Union Tractor. Russell Metals has started the first phase of its construction and plans for future phases. Located above them in an 18,000-19,000 square foot office will be Davey Tree.

There are also plans for WAM to build two multi-tenant buildings for clients who don’t need large facilities but are looking for 10,000 to 50,000 square feet along the Spine Road.

“All of our companies have moved from Edmonton,” said Eger. “It’s all new tax base for the county. That seems to be the trend here, not having people already in the county relocating.”

“This will be a business park that’s going to shine,” commented County Mayor John Whalet. Councillor Clay Stumph said he was pleased to see the new business coming to the County. “It looks good that we’re bringing these big businesses out of areas where they can’t get around.” County manager Brian Bowles agreed. “It’s a huge investment in the west end of Nisku…we’ve got a great project here and WAM was wonderful to work with.”
