JOHN’S, NL (July 2, 2013) – The Glencrest Industrial Centre is Atlantic Canada’s newest industrial park offering approximately 87 acres of prime real estate for those looking to grow or start their business, in particular heavy and light industrial businesses. Glencrest Industrial Centre is the first phase of a substantial real estate development being undertaken by Danny Williams in the west end of St. John’s. In addition to the industrial centre the development will include a large retail shopping area and thousands of residential units. The life of the project will span several years.

Just minutes from the Port of St. John’s and directly adjacent to the Trans Canada Highway at the western entrance to St. John’s, this land is ideally located for businesses of all kinds.

“We are so thrilled after months and years of planning to finally release this land for sale; and we are confident based on expressions of interest to-date that there is a clear recognition of the incredible potential for business opportunities,” said Danny Williams. “Newfoundland and Labrador continues to lead this country in economic growth and the demand for this type of development is undeniable. Located just minutes from the port, the airport, and right at the gateway to the province’s largest business and residential region, this land could not be more ideally positioned.”

Glencrest expects to attract businesses of all sizes, large multinationals as well as local businesses, and will cover a range of industrial sectors particularly companies servicing the oil & gas and mining industries along with distributors and local enterprises. Work on the site has begun and lots are available for purchase immediately. Lots will range in size and can be customized to meet a variety of businesses requirements.

Mr. Williams also officially announced today the appointment of his new Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Gerry O’Reilly. Most recently living in Toronto, Gerry is originally from Mount Pearl and has more than a decade of experience as a CFO in both private and public Canadian companies.

“I am delighted to welcome Gerry to my team, and particularly pleased to welcome him and his family back to their home province,” said Mr. Williams. “I never cease to be amazed by the incredibly competent, energetic, and skilled young people this province produces. Gerry brings all of these attributes and more to the table and will be an valuable asset as we move forward with this very exciting development.”
