Harden Group Expands Commercial Plaza, Bulk Barn Coming to Cornwall

October 12, 2010

Harden

The Harden Group is expanding Plaza Cornwall, its commercial property on Brookdale Avenue.  The real estate developer is currently putting the finishing touches on a new 15,000 sq.ft building, which will house five tenants.

The first confirmed tenant is Bulk Barn which will take the largest of the five available spaces. The 5,000 sq.ft. store is expected to open by early 2011.  There are no confirmations at this time as to who the other tenants will be.

“We are currently talking to a number of retailers who are very interested in reaching Cornwall and area consumers,” said Tyler Harden, Leasing Director for the Harden Group. “We also plan to build one more building at this location, which will be approximately 37,000 sq.ft.”

“This development is another example of how Cornwall is getting the attention of major companies across Canada,” said Mayor Bob Kilger. “On behalf of City Council, I welcome Bulk Barn to Cornwall and commend the Harden Group for their ongoing investment in the City.”
