There are over 12,000 industrial properties sitting idle across Ontario. Many of these sites provide no social, ecological or economical benefit to the community and occupy valuable real estate. Due to the stigma associated with industrial properties it has become challenging to find companies willing to redevelop these properties for renewed economic growth.
Since our establishment in 2012, we have been working with private investors and communities to assess and redevelop industrial properties into new productive uses to drive economic development back to the area. To date, we have evaluated numerous properties in Ontario and have successfully redeveloped two locations. Our in-house programs and process allow us to map the economical, ecological, industry and community-driven opportunities unique to each site. At Blueforest, our goal is to reimagine underutilized land in order to bring it back to a productive use.
