Lanterra Developments is a group that has been creating landmark condominium communities in the Greater Toronto Area since 1999. They believe their towers should be characterized by outstanding location, iconic architecture and design, and should provide amazing amenities for all of their residents.
Lanterra was formed by Mark Mandelbaum and Barry Fenton. Both Mark and Barry come from a law and real estate background. Mark graduated from the University of Toronto law school in 1981 and was called to the bar in 1983. He practiced corporate law for a downtown Toronto law firm until he joined his family’s real estate business becoming the Vice President of Land Development and Corporate Council, a position that he held for 25 years.
Barry graduated from law school at the University of Ottawa and was called to the bar in 1983. He practiced law for two years before shifting gears and becoming the president of a major real estate firm in 1985. His firm specialized in acquisition and development of major residential and commercial properties throughout Canada and the United States.
The two first worked together to acquire the One Bedford property in 1999, and just like that, Lanterra was born. Although they both oversee all aspects of their business, Mark focuses on the architecture and design of projects, while Barry handles the acquisition and development of their properties. Their key values are innovation, teamwork, integrity, respect, creativity and responsibility. These values can be seen in each one of their developments across the GTA.
They don’t just want to create buildings, their goal is to push Toronto towards being a global city designed for the future. When they joined forces in 1999, they were able to anticipate the dramatic shift in Toronto’s housing needs and now through their master-planned communities, stunning design and sustainable technologies, they’re able to guide Toronto towards becoming a major urban hub on the global stage.
Mark and Barry have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the real estate industry and they’ve used these attributes to build their company's reputation. They understand that developing condominiums is a unique enterprise, and this has resulted in them becoming a major player in the world of GTA high-rise development. They know that unlike low-rise home communities, condos require preeminent strategic location and sustainable design to remain relevant and valuable. Moving on, they are sure to reimagine the city’s skyline, as well as its identity.
