Cranbrook profiled on Western Investor
Western Investor magazine features Cranbrook, B.C., in key investment section
A trusted source for commercial real estate, franchising and business opportunities in Western Canada recently featured the city of Cranbrook in its “Where to Invest” section.
Western Investor, a digital magazine and the region’s largest commercial real estate newspaper, picked up on the fact that Cranbrook’s construction values reached $34 million in 2017. It writes:
“The East Kootenay region city of Cranbrook is home to over 20,000 residents, with a steady population growth of 4.2 per cent from 2011 to 2016. The city is a transportation and educational services hub for the region, home to both the main campus of the College of the Rockies and the Canadian Rockies International Airport. Construction values for 2017 topped $34 million in Cranbrook – up $8 million from the year before. Institutional project values led the way primarily with a $12 million increase in construction value – primarily due to the construction of a new trades training facility at the College of the Rockies. Expansions to Cranbrook’s airport are helping facilitate a continued trend of investment and migration from Alberta, with service to Calgary via WestJet to launch in 2018. . . ”
