Significant retail clustering has occurred in the community of Cookville, bordering the Town of Bridgewater. The Shoppes at Osprey Village is a joint private sector and Municipally-owned commercial development park spanning 220-acres strategically located near Exit 12 off Highway 103. In 2004, the Shoppes at Osprey Village attracted key anchor tenants– Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, Mark’s Work Wearhouse, Harvey’s / Swiss Chalet and Boston Pizza; quickly establishing a new retail and service hub for the region.
Businesses that are located here are doing extremely well... There are roughly 60,000 residential consumers around the commercial area.
New tenants in 2009-10 included a Best Western Bridgewater Hotel & Convention Centre, Staples and P-12 French language school, École de la Rive-Sud. Based upon inquiries, growth is expected in new commercial developments with a push toward single and multiple housing units.
Businesses here have the advantage of being close to international shipping routes. We are within an hour of the deepest, ice-free port in North America—a major shipping route to Europe; and have access to a double-stack rail network that stretches across Canada and travels the Gulf coasts of North America.
Access to Osprey Village’s shops and services is fast and convenient. An abundance of free parking effortlessly accommodates large numbers of customer and delivery vehicles. The Trunk 10 highway was widened and entrances and exits have been designed to optimize traffic flows during busy periods. In fact investments of over $27 million have been made in water, sewage, road and other municipal infrastructure.
