Rockport Group is a real estate developer that has been active throughout the Greater Toronto Area for over 60 years, and in fact holds the acclaim of being the first condominium builder in all of Toronto. They are a full service company who has a varied portfolio of developments throughout the city. A family business, their development company has been passed down through generations, and is poised to continue the tradition.
This developer became the first condo builder in Toronto when they registered as a Condominium Corporation in 1957. This pioneering move has proven to be one of the most fundamental developments the city of Toronto has ever experienced, as condominium towers now characterize the city’s skyline.
There’s no telling what our skyline would look like today if it were not for this developer. They boast a wide array of services and developments. Their company’s services include handling all aspects of land acquisition, development, project management, construction management, and income producing property management. Their properties include mid and high rise condo developments, purpose built rental residential developments, as well as retail, commercial, and industrial developments. They’ve built single family homes, townhomes, condominiums and retirement homes, equaling over 25,000 units since 1957. They are a true giant in the industry.
The company was founded by Burt Weinberg in 1957 and today it is run by Burt’s son Jack. Jack serves as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. Before his career as a CEO, Jack studied law and business, and he practiced law with the specialization of land use and development. He also has experience as a director in both the public and private sectors of business.
Other impressive feats he’s accomplished include being a founding member of the Clublink Corporation, the President of the Urban Development Institute of Canada and the Chairman of Urban Development Institute of Ontario - better known today as BILD. He certainly has one of the most impressive resumes of anyone in the industry. Jack looks to keep the business in the family as his son Daniel appears poised to continue the family legacy and is a current Principle on the executive board.
This developer has contributed to the culture of the city we now inhabit. By becoming the very first condo developer in Toronto, they ignited a revolution that has shaped the identity of the city and its skyline.
They have built many homes throughout the city and have created entire communities in the process. The leadership of their founder Burt and his son Jack has resulted in safe stewardship and the organization becoming one of the most prominent companies in the entire Greater Toronto Area. Moving forward, we are excited to see how this developer works to shape the most exciting city in Canada.
