Giant Tiger

Development management for the new Giant Tiger Headquarters

Taking advantage of our Project & Development Services and ability to deliver outstanding turnkey properties, Giant Tiger approached Canderel to oversee the design and build of its new head office.  

Wanting to develop a facility in Ottawa on their existing 450,000 sf industrial site, Giant Tiger approached Canderel to lead the project. Canderel assembled a team of architects, engineers and various other consultants, & served as Giant Tiger’s eyes and ears to deliver a new turnkey headquarters property.  

The new headquarters is set to be a 4-storey office tower consisting of two wings connected by an atrium. Wrapped floor to ceiling in glass, the building will feature an internal staircase leading to each floor. The new site will offer 50,000 sf of usable space as well as a full service cafeteria and workout facility. With limited space available on site, Canderel had to creatively reconfigure the existing building & demolish areas around it to accommodate the new facility. The project is set to be completed in February 2021. Upon delivering the finished product, Canderel will continue to provide property management services.
