BWG Has Hundreds of Acres Ideally Suited for A Variety of Industrial, Commercial, Institutional Uses
A surprisingly untapped region just minutes north of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), BWG is perfectly situated along or near major highway systems, including Highway 400, as well as well travelled and accessible arterial roads such as Provincial Highways 9, 27 and 11. The community also is intersected by a major rail line and has access to nearby commuter airports.
BWG is located in the heart of the richest agricultural land in Ontario, providing an ideal source of raw materials for agri-food enterprises. The community is well served by ample natural water sources, has excellent municipal services and surface road infrastructure as well as an abundance of recreational, cultural, medical and educational services institutions and amenities – all of which factor in growth opportunities for many years.
Add to all this an ‘open-for-business’ attitude on the part of Council and municipal staff, and a desire to continue to improve the economic prosperity and wonderful quality of life on the part of residents, there is little doubt that BWG should be the preferred choice for your industrial, commercial or institutional client to build, work and grow.
An Abundance of Land, An Abundance of Opportunity
Although there is evidence of rapid urbanization in the nearby communities to the east and to the north, unlike those municipalities, BWG still has an abundance of available land well suited for development within its borders. Not only is that land able to be parceled into sizes to suit any large, medium or smaller scale project, it is also eminently affordable, especially in comparison to properties within the neighbouring the GTA.
BWG Economic Development staff, including our Planning, Building and Development Engineering departments are eager to meet with any of your industrial, commercial or institutional developers or project facilitators to ensure a smooth land acquisition, planning and construction process. They have already invested the necessary resources to ensure the properties are prepared for development and will work to ensure all related servicing and infrastructure needs are met.
The land is abundant and of superior quality, the expertise and resources are in place, and the BWG community is enthusiastic about supporting progressive, innovative projects to build a better, more prosperous community.
BWG Offers Properties to Satisfy Development Diversity
The BWG Economic Development Department is your first stop to find the ideal site and engage the planning process. BWG’s Investment Readiness Team (IRT) brings together staff from all relevant departments (economic development, planning, engineering, building and others) and external experts and consultants when appropriate.
The objective of the IRT is to provide high-level feedback on a development proposal before engaging in the mandatory pre-consultation process with the Community Planning Department. We can analyze multiple sites and determine the scope and details of each project, as well as identify any challenges early and chart a path forward.
A Revitalized, Vibrant Place
Contact BWG’s Economic Development Department to explore the opportunities to locate in the vibrant and thriving downtown core. The team can provide comprehensive market and property information and identify the potential to access BWG’s downtown Community Improvement Plan.
Downtown Community Improvement Plan Incentives
To ensure a balance of both urban renewal and residential/commercial growth, BWG implemented a Downtown Community Improvement Plan (DCIP) in 2012 with a mandate of encouraging infill development, housing intensification and business/dwelling improvements.
The plan offers development charge grants, tax increment grants and funding for façade improvement, interior building upgrades and building/permit fees to business owners or tenants investing in new buildings, expansions or renovations. To date, more than $1 million has been invested in transforming BWG’s downtown core into a vibrant area to live and shop.
At a recent mid-program review, BWG Council has extended the program to at least 2021, with the option to continue. The DCIP grants provide tremendous incentive for new investors and existing merchants alike to invest in downtown BWG.
