Business Parks

City Of Kingston Business Parks

Kingston is home to four well-planned and fully-serviced, shovel ready business parks. These city-owned industrial lands have state-of-the-art infrastructure with easy access to Highway 401 and the downtown core. These lands are zoned to allow a variety of businesses ranging from general and prestige industrial to limited commercial and service-related uses. A wide selection of parcels of various sizes are available.

Alcan Business Park

Centrally located, the Alcan Business Park is situated immediately south of John Counter Boulevard, approximately 2.5 km south of Highway 401. Lands are designated for mixed-use business activities such as research and development, light manufacturing and assembly, data processing facilities, and corporate or professional offices. The park is approaching build-out with one 1.5 acre vacant parcel remaining.

Cataraqui Estates Business Park

Cataraqui Estates Business Park is located in the west end of Kingston, approximately 1km south of Highway 401. It is prestige in character, accommodating a number of small to medium to large sized businesses including manufacturing and assembling operations, processing plants, warehousing and distribution facilities, and business or professional offices. The lands are a mix of Business Park Industrial and General Industrial uses. Lots range in size from 0.5 acre to 14.5 acres.

Clyde Industrial Park

Clyde Industrial Park is located immediately south of Highway 401 adjacent to Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard. It accommodates a broad range of sectors such as construction, wholesale trade, transportation, manufacturing, professional, scientific and technical services. The park is approaching full build-out with only two municipally owned vacant parcels remaining.

St. Lawrence Business Park

St. Lawrence Business Park is located in Kingston East, 2 km south of Highway 401. Highly prestige in character, it is home to distribution/logistics, scientific, medical and technical services, and other commercial uses. Parcels range from under 1 acre to 7 acres.

Offer To Purchase

The City of Kingston drafts an Offer to Purchase agreement for each property and client. The draft agreement includes negotiable terms which:

  • Meet the needs of the client and the City of Kingston
  • Incorporate the unique details of the property
  • Specify agreed upon details regarding the size and timing of the client's new building construction

Major components of the Standard Offer to Purchase are:

  1. Critical dates: The Purchaser typically has up to one year to select a site, design the building and site plan and achieve the necessary planning approvals. After the sale closes, the Purchaser usually has another year to construct the building for occupancy.
  2. Minimum lot occupancy: the square footage of the new building (sum of all floor space) is generally required to be at least 20% of the lot area.
  3. Deposit: 10% of the purchase price.
  4. Option to Repurchase: The City of Kingston retains an option to buy the property back should the Purchaser be unable to construct a new building as per the terms of the agreement.

We value your business and work with every potential purchaser to find the right solution.
