Discount retail chain Giant Tiger has filed plans with the City of Ottawa to expand its Ottawa corporate headquarters.
Its proposal calls for a new four-storey office building and a one-storey retail use podium at the 371,570 square foot site on Walkley Rd. currently housing Giant Tiger’s corporate headquarters, a retail store and a warehouse that was formerly a Giant Tiger distribution centre.
The Ottawa Business Journal reports that the new development would maintain much of the current structure as an ancillary store connected to the new Giant Tiger corporate headquarters, which will contain about 187,000 square feet of office space. A portion of the existing warehouse will be demolished to allow for construction staging, but 182,685 square feet of industrial space would be maintained to lease to future tenants.
