I have posted a new property at Dawson Creek, Peace River.

The Peace Country Industrial Park in Dawson Creek is a master planned community designed to meet the regions tremendous demand for industrial and commercial space.

The Peace River Dawson Creek corridor is situated in Dawson Creek, the hub of the lberta/BC energy corridor. The Canada’ s Natural Resource Corridor is the the most prolific job and investment generator in Canada today. Sitting adjacent to the 62,000 square mile Duvernay, one of the largest natural gas, oil and gas reserves in Canada, the region spans from Whitecourt in Northern Alberta into Fort St. John, Kitimat and to the Pacific Ocean.

The region is also the home of the Northern Gateway Project and the proposed Site C damn. Dawson Creek sits strategically in the centre of this area forecasted to drive Canada’s energy sector for the next 50 years.

Offered only at $8,000,000.

Dawson Creek
"Dawson Creek is in the 'construction phase' for resource projects which translates into high demand for industrial property."

Dawson Creek has been selected as the best site for the Peace Country Industrial Park. It’s the poster child for the northeast B.C. boom. It derives its name from the creek that runs through the city. With a municipality of 24.37sq km it has a trading population of 55,000 and is known as the “Capital of Peace.”

Recently, PetroChina made a billion-dollar investment in Royal Dutch Shell’s massive Groundbirch shale-gas project just north of the city, making PetroChina a 20 per cent shareholder in the project. And, in a recently released report, B.C.’s Ministry of Energy and Mines detailed how natural-gas production could almost triple over the next decade, going from 1.1 trillion cubic feet annually to three trillion cubic feet by 2020.

Spectra Energy, which opened a natural gas-processing plant in Dawson Creek in 2011, will soon cement plans for an 850-kilometre pipeline from the Dawson Creek area to the northeast Coast.

As well, Shell Canada, with Asian investors and TransCanada Corp., is planning a $4 billion pipeline from the Dawson Creek-area gas fields to the proposed LNG plant at Kitimat. This project will require 2,000 to 2,500 construction workers. The vacancy rate in Dawson Creek is already near zero and the average house price is north of $270,000. The unemployment rate is around 4 per cent.

Dawson Creek is in the “construction phase” for resource projects which translates into high demand for high demand for industrial property.
