More Jobs coming to bells corners with the expansion of General Dynamics on Robertson
My office has received some inquiry about what is going on at 1931 Robertson Road in Bells Corners. The most important news is that hundreds of additional new jobs are coming! The existing building is undergoing a complete renovation and expansion. Behind the current establishment a second 3 storey office building is to begin construction this month. The new construct will house nearly 250 employees of a major engineering firm. Consistent with our official plan, this will modernize the appearance on the strip and it will add 250 people to the customer base- something that is much needed by the Bells Corners business strip. Growing the customer base is the objective of most of our actions and economic planning over the past three years. Once we grow that customer base back to a critical mass that is sustainable not only will it make up for what we lost to the "new" retail sectors in Barrhaven and Kanata, and for the loss of Nortel workers shopping on the strip, but we will be able to start encouraging specific secondary businesses to the area in the future. Construction will commence March 2014 with building occupancy planned for February 2015. Look for more information on this and other improvements coming to the area in the upcoming newsletter or contact my office directly at (613) 580-2478 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
