From humble beginnings in 1949, Broccolini Construction quickly grew from building homes to neighbourhoods. Over six decades the company has built some 16 million square feet of industrial, retail, office and entertainment space for the who's who of retail Canada: Canadian Tire, Future Shop, Best Buy, Brault and Martineau, Loblaws, and IGA—as well as dozens of shopping centres and big-box stores. On the corporate side, you'll recognize the company's work if you've ever driven past ABB, Mel's, Bristol Myers Squibb, Hagen, Hewitt, Schering-Plough and any number of other corporate or industrial addresses, offices, warehouses, plants and distribution centres.
The real estate development and property division of the company is no less impressive with extensive land holdings and millions of square feet under development.
Although Montreal is still home to the firm—and its principal source of business—Broccolini Construction's sights are firmly set on development and construction opportunities in Ottawa and Toronto these days. The company's expansion into these markets may not have been possible without the contributions of Anthony Broccolini, the third generation of managers in the family business.
Grandson of founder Donato, son of president John and nephew to vice-presidents Paul and Joseph, Anthony exudes the passion, pride and tradition for which the Broccolini business is famous. And he's committed to taking a strong company and making it even stronger into a third generation.
