Fortress Real Developments
Fortress Real Developments is a team that prides itself on their research abilities, which they use to determine current market trends, allowing them to find strategic property opportunities. They don’t believe in limiting the scope of the acquisitions and they have compiled an incredibly varied portfolio. To date they’ve built rental apartments, high-rise condos, hotels, office space, big-box retail stores and single-family homes. This totals 80 completed projects, 21 projects under construction and $6-billion in revenue.
The success of Fortress can be traced back to the leadership of their executive team. This team, which accounts for over 75 years of combined experience in the real estate industry, performs ongoing research to continuously reevaluate the projects that are underway.
Their guidance has led their company to partner with over 25 builders and developers across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. They continue to set themselves apart by having partners in development construction, finance, legal, planning and marketing firms. They truly believe that this wide breadth of partners and experience has allowed them to differentiate themselves from other real estate developers.
The executive team is led by President and CEO, Jawad Rathone. Rathone graduated from York University in 1997 and a few years later, set to work beginning his own firm.
In 2002 he expanded his enterprise into what is today’s Fortress Real Developments. His early efforts focused on marketing, but he quickly expanded his resources and partnerships to become an all-encompassing force in real-estate development.
This developer also believes is giving back to the communities that they’re helping create. They believe in supporting programs that help children in disadvantaged areas so they can participate in recreational and amateur sports. They’ve also contributed to many charities, including the North York Harvest Food Bank, Covenant House, Sick Kids Hospital, and have donated significantly to the MLSE Team Up Foundation and Toronto’s Santa Clause Parade.
Fortress has applied themselves to the industry with diligence and it has paid off. Today their portfolio comprises over 10,000 units in a variety of areas and capacities. They continue to contribute to the robust real estate market across the country.
