FCA Canada selling 32 acres of Brampton plant parking, barrier land

A Canadian real estate group is advertising 32 acres of land for sale in Brampton, Ontario, which from their diagrams appears to include around half the employee parking lot, a portion of the shipping lot, and some land which insulate the lots from nearby streets and provide landscaping. The Brampton Assembly and Satellite Stamping plants occupy 269 acres, with around 3 million square feet of factory space; and this does not seem to imply that the Brampton renovation is threatened.

Land in the area is quite valuable, and as automation has progressed, Brampton has (like all auto assembly plants) needed fewer people on the assembly lines. Employment was last reported as being 2,443 people on two shifts (in 2006, there were 4,200 employees). The employee parking lot was likely sized for many more people than currently work there.

The facility was built in 1986 for American Motors; it started making large Chrysler Corporation cars in June 1992. Stellantis recently invested billions of dollars in the Brampton and Windsor plants, and is expected to return to three shifts around 2025-2027. While Brampton is closed for renovation, it will re-open in 2025 with a new STLA Medium version of the Jeep Compass.
