Our Story


We are focused on the development of well thought out high-rise condominiums located in close proximity to Toronto’s major amenities, rapid transit network and employment areas. We believe that this approach to development will contribute to the vibrancy, sustainability and competitiveness of Toronto. We currently have eight high-rise residential projects in various stages of development throughout the Greater Toronto Area, collectively representing over 5,000 homes and $1.5 billion dollars of development value.

We strive to exceed customer expectations and be leaders in our industry. Our developments are collaborative endeavours undertaken with best-in-class planners, architects, interior designers and construction trades in order to ensure that the homes we develop are of the highest quality standard. We take great pride in the positive impact that our developments have on their home owners and the communities that they are a part of. We are accountable to our customers, communities, partners and each other for the work that we produce and the actions that we take.
