TORONTO, March 1, 2023 – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the firm has represented Ontario Power Generation (OPG) in its acquisition of the former General Motors of Canada building in Oshawa.

1908-Colonel-Sam-Dr-92-web-cardCushman & Wakefield’s Jeff Lever, Dan Rogers, Reilly Hayhurst and Mike Murray represented OPG. CBRE represented the seller, General Motors of Canada.

Located at 1908 Colonel Sam Drive, the acquisition includes a 284,500-square-foot office building and 74 acres of adjacent employment land.

OPG will be refurbishing the existing building with occupancy planned for late 2024 into 2025. The building will become the corporate headquarters for OPG accommodating approximately 2,000 employees.

“This building and its adjacent lands offer OPG an ideal opportunity to bring its corporate staff supporting Darlington under one roof and enhance collaboration,” said Lever. “OPG occupied three floors at the property for a decade and built a strong relationship with GM. That experience, along with the development’s proximity to the Darlington Complex, made it a compelling option. It now will play an integral role in supporting OPG’s existing operations, the development of new projects and exploration of growth and innovation.”

The surrounding 74 acres may provide opportunities for vendor-partners to co-locate in the area to support Darlington and other operations, Lever said.
