Land Cost
Serviced industrial land is available in the $100,000 to $150,000 per acre range but can be higher for smaller parcels (i.e. fully serviced sites in the City of Brooks). Purchase price for land in the County of Newell is lower than the City of Brooks given lack of services. 

By way of comparison, land cost in the City of Calgary is $500,000 - $600,000/acre serviced.
