Spotlight Development Inc.
It was only a matter of time before the focus on the well-made homes made by this aptly named developer eventually shone back upon its creator, revealing a quality builder whose ingrained principles have led to national attention on the big stage.
Spotlight Development Inc. is a real estate development firm that specializes in the acquisition of properties for the purpose of redevelopment into high-density, high-value residential and mixed-use projects.
With years of experience in navigating the municipal rezoning and approval process, this Toronto-based developer has established strong relationships with city leaders, agencies, and key consultants that help with the complexities of successfully entitling and permitting projects.
At the same time, strong word-of-mouth has led to a buzzing excitement that perpetually follows this builder. Spotlight has earned a sterling reputation in the southern Ontario real estate development industry by creating value through repurposing land and creating exquisitely-designed homes that aptly suit the everyday requirements of its customers.
Keen on simplicity and a firm believer in maintaining the essentials, Spotlight offers a range of services including strategy, concept design, schematic design, permits, construction administration, and interior design.
In addition to constructing residential buildings, this developer serves as a full-service commercial real estate development firm with a substantial portfolio of well-designed retail and office space with a passionate interest in material, light, and space.
Most recently, Spotlight received national recognition for its participation in Canada’s first all-female condominium development team.
Sherry Larjani, managing partner at Spotlight Developments, said the decision to create a woman-only development team was to provide role models in an industry that is dominated by men.
“We're trying to prove and trying to show that we are here and we love to do this and this is a viable option for young girls. If they decide that this is the path they want to pursue, then get in it and do it,” said Larjani, who revealed that she was confronted with challenges due to her gender.
“There aren’t many entrepreneurial women coming into the industry on their own. No one took me seriously until I bought my first piece of land,” said Larjani. “We need to give women positive role models and prove that a career in development is a viable path.
“It’s incumbent upon all of us to change this narrative.”
In addition to serving as a wake-up call for gender equality, the all-women development team also hope to provide a female perspective that has been sorely lacking in the home building industry. Everything from. street level design to unit layouts that will be designed from a woman’s point of view in order to accommodate the specific needs of women.
Although they have their own suggestions like better lighting and communal stroller storage, what this developer really wants to do is listen to other people’s ideas. As part of their design process, the Reina team will perform a public design consultation in order to determine the needs of their purchasers.
“Our team will be listening to what people want in their building and incorporate their feedback into the design. We want to create a building that truly accounts for everyone’s needs, from women to families to investors,” Larjani said.
A look at some of Spotlight’s previous developments shows that this developer has been told to create extravagant and luxurious homes — and they’ve done just that.
