When it comes to new development in Barrie, MADY is one of the biggest names out there.
The developer, led by Charles Mady, is already building two of the most successful condo projects in the city’s history — LAKEview and MarketTown. And just at the end of February, the company, along with the City of Barrie, officially launched The Collier Centre which will be the commercial component to LAKEview.
MADY expects the new business complex to revitalize Barrie’s downtown core. The law firm Barriston LLP will be the flagship tenant for The Collier Centre, occupying about 40,000 square feet of prime office space upon completion.
Other big names who will be setting up shop are Second Cup, Sobeys and a national bank. The Sobeys will occupy 38,000 square feet and include a pharmacy.
“We are very excited to launch this new business destination,” Barrie mayor Jeff Lehman said of the project. “The Collier Centre is a key project of the City of Barrie, one that will further advance the city’s plan to develop the Collier Street corridor as part of its key financial district.”
