The Sher Corporation
The Sher Corporation is a developer that is able to approach the Toronto real estate market in a unique way. They have projects throughout the Greater Toronto Area, and their goal is to shape the identity of the city’s landscape. Their leadership gives them an unconventional understanding of the requirements of the city, and this also shapes the way they think about design and infrastructure.
The company focuses on leaving a permanent mark on Downtown Toronto’s cityscape with beautifully modern buildings. Their specialty is working with infill properties where they perform multiple roles including, reviewing, accessing, acquiring, and developing.
They want to add value to the landscape that surrounds these neighbourhoods. Their understanding of urban development and progressive modernism allow them to focus on contributing to the city’s urban identity with their ability to provide cutting edge design that will be praised in future generations for its timeless design.
The reason for this company’s success must be attributed to their leader, Shakeel Walji. Walji has an unconventional resume compared to many developer heads in the city. Unlike other leaders of development companies throughout the GTA who come from a real estate, finance, or law background, Walji has training as a professional engineer. This perspective allows him to approach developments with functionality in mind, but he also has a keen eye for design.
His goal is to create projects that will seamlessly blend with their surrounding neighbourhoods, while also standing out from the crowd. Walji also has extensive experience in marketing. In 1995 he began working with Brad Lamb on projects like 180 Frederick and Liberty Lofts. He has culminated a rare combination of talents, and this has allowed him to see development projects in a completely different way.
Walji and his company believe that sales and management is vital toward planning of future projects because they’re able to offer insight into the demands of the customers they communicate with. This gives them an idea about what the buyer’s preferences are from Toronto and around the world.

This is going to be a defining property in an area that is already one of Toronto’s most sought after neighbourhoods.
This developer has a unique take on the real estate market in Toronto, and it's allowing them to excel at their goal of leaving an indelible mark on the city.
