215 Lakeshore Closing Makes Waves in the News

November 3, 2016

In one of the largest land deals in Toronto’s history, our recent sale of 215 Lakeshore Boulevard East on October 13th has made headlines across a variety of real estate news outlets. See what industry pundits have said regarding the deal below.

Greybrook Realty Partners Inc. had big plans for its four-acre parcel of land on Toronto’s waterfront at 215 Lake Shore Boulevard East but an offer from Chinese real estate Greenland Group (Canada) turned out to be too good to turn down.

Politis stressed that his company never had any plans to sell the site but noted “everything is for sale at the right price.”

He believes “Greenland is going to do very well, based on what they are paying on a per foot basis – it was an easy call for us – but I think they are going to do really well too.”

“With the scarcity of any land yet alone prime land like this at this stage of the development process which is more or less ready to go, that kind of land is priced at a premium.”
