$65-million InksPort development gets the green light
It’s a tough time to make any predictions about the future, but Paul Jhand and Sam Sidhu of local firm Whiteland Developers are pretty confident in one prognostication: Manitoba’s industrial real estate sector will perform well in 2021, just as it has throughout the pandemic-riddled 2020.
“The demand we’ve seen this year will continue into next year and beyond,” said Jhand, the company’s CEO.
With that confidence, Whiteland is investing $65 million into the development of InksPort, a new 68-acre business park at CentrePort in the RM of Rosser that will have at least 375,000-square-feet of industrial space available by the third quarter of next year.
