This real estate developer is focused on bringing stunning design and architecture to Downtown Toronto. They focus on mid-rise condo developments that enhance their neighbourhood’s aesthetic. In addition to design, they focus on investment and increasing the value of the property in which they build.
They are a relatively young company, but they are set for success due to their founder having worked with one of the most respected development companies in the city.
They consider themselves a results based developer that focuses on acquiring premium property in Downtown Toronto.
They place importance on being good neighbours, and that’s why they strive to build aesthetically pleasing and well designed projects. They don’t want to just build something that fades into the background, so they consider it vital that they construct iconic landmarks that stand the test of time.
Another one of their goals is to build strong relationships throughout the development process. This is important because fostering good relationships with industry leaders and the city goes a long way toward ensuring your project gets built. They treat these relationships as a valuable resource that should not be wasted. Each connection they establish, they believe, should be treated with the utmost care and integrity.
These valuable tenets can be traced back to their founder and CEO Bill Gairdner. Before establishing his own firm, he was able to to find success with one of the most well known developers in the Toronto real estate industry - Freed Developments.
This is where Gairdner established his designed centric philosophy. Freed is renowned for redefining the King West neighbourhood from an area replete with brownfield and under used properties into a thriving community filled with masterful developments, each with its own character. Some of the landmark projects from Freed are The Thompson Hotel Toronto and Thompson Residences, 500 Wellington West, Seventy5 Portland, and Fashion House Condos.
This combined philosophy that integrates stunning design with strong relationships has certainly paid off, Gairdner has been able to guide his young company into an award winning development firm. They were given the 2014 BILD Award for Best Sales Office, 2014 BILD Award for Best Social Media, and the Award for Excellence from the 2017 Toronto Urban Design Awards. All of these awards were for their 383 Sorauren development.
They love enhancing neighbourhoods with their stunning architecture and designs, but they are also pragmatic about the investments they make. They aim to directly invest in under performing properties, as well as engaging in joint venture investments. They know that Downtown Toronto is engaging in major densification efforts, and thus it’s rife with amazing potential and opportunities.
In addition to their building services, they also engage in consulting and development managing. This shows that they’re not just talented builders, but they are a well rounded company that will soon be regarded as one of the top graded industry pros in the GTA.
This real estate developer is only a young company, but they are already making waves in the industry. They focus on building projects with amazing architecture and design, transforming entire neighbourhoods in the process.
They are able to create such stunning designs by focusing on the hidden details of each project. This is a trait that founder Bill Gairdner picked up from his previous employer, Freed Developments. This design focused ability has totally paid off, which is evidenced by the number of awards they have already won. We have little doubt about this developer’s ability to soar in this development industry, and we’re sure they’re going to make strides to reshape the city.
