Cortel Group is part of a family-owned collective of successful businesses that builds commercial and residential developments. They specialize in creating master-planned communities in the Greater Toronto Area and across Ontario. Cortel believes in building for the future, while still respecting the heritage of communities. They understand that it’s not a mere structure that creates a community, it’s the people. They know it’s important that the residents of these new communities feel comfortable putting down roots in their new homes.
This developer encourages that philosophy by investing in the environment, as well as local charities that directly impact the burgeoning neighborhoods they aim to create. Their fundamental priority is that they care about the legacy they leave behind. With their belief in long-term development, they understand the importance of environmental sustainability and work to preserve the nature that surrounds the neighbourhoods they build in.
They’ve partnered with organizations such as the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA), the Greenland Group of Companies and the University of Guelph. Together with community organizations, this developer works to utilize the newest technologies available, while implementing sustainable materials and products into their projects.
There is a lot to consider when you take the environment this seriously, so Cortel works toward flood reduction, creek rehabilitation and pond conservation. Their environmental beliefs are characterized in their logo, which is a maple key. This not only symbolizes their belief in preserving natural surroundings, but of creating new life with strong roots that can continue to grow and thrive well into the future.
Their understanding of the role that citizens make in their communities has led them to invest in several philanthropic efforts. They have specific interests in youth education, health care and First Nations initiatives. Some of the programs they've partnered with include the Sick Kids Foundation, Villa Charities and the Canadian Ethnocultural Centre. This developer strongly believes that a promise is a promise, and they aim to prove it with their dedication to these charities, along with their ongoing investment into the communities that they’re creating.
Their philosophies are embodied in their current EXPO City project in Vaughan. As a detail-oriented company that focuses on location, financing, and design, the Cortel Group capitalized on a major opportunity when they acquired a 300-hectare parcel of land in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
Here they're creating a residential and commercial hub in Vaughan's rapidly developing downtown core. They will place emphasis on establishing luxury residences and a retail avenue in a family-friendly urban environment. Staying true to their environmental convictions, they will also include 14-acres of naturalized space and use the latest technology in rainwater management. The project will utilize nearly an acre of green space on the roofs of their towers, which will work to capture the excess of water and funnel it back into the community’s natural ecosystem. Conscious of Canadian weather, they have planned covered walkways and a state-of-the-art community centre for the site, which will promote healthy living all year long. EXPO City will take the condominium living experience into the 21st century with a community-based setting and environmentally-sound features.
This real estate developer is truly looking to make an impact on future generations. Their understanding of a developer's responsibility towards the environment in today's world will hopefully encourage other developers to follow their lead in creating a greener earth. Their passion for community building and engagement will set the tone for many future projects to come.
