Published June 28, 2023 at 1:00 pm


Toronto-based real estate company Cedar City Developments Ltd. bought 86.79 acres on Hamilton Mountain for $21 million this week, the largest commercial real estate transaction in Steeltown since April 28.

(On April 28, 94 acres were purchased for $21 million on Twenty Road West.)

The latest big purchase amounts to about $242,000 per acre for the property on 8113 Airport Rd. E. in Glanbrook near the airport, according to Alex Manojlovich, director of strategy and research at Forge and Foster Investment Management.

The City’s interactive zoning map shows the parcel is zoned agricultural, appearing to be located within one of the province’s mandated urban boundary expansion areas, according to Manojlovich

Cedar City Developments did not immediately respond to inthehammer.com’s request for more details about the purchase.

Since it’s a commercial real estate transaction, the property will be exclusively used to generate income, such as for office, industrial, retail, multifamily rental (like condos) or retail spaces.
