Residential Development

Our investment thesis centres around making equity investments in large-scale residential and multi-family development opportunities in stable, growing markets across North America. We target markets with a prevailing housing supply-demand imbalance that also exhibit the strong fundamentals required to sustain high demand for residential real estate.

A lack of available development land in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) combined with an onerous and often-times elongated planning process continue to be critical factors in limiting the availability of new home supply in the region. Meanwhile, the demand for housing in the GTA has been driven by a growing population and the area’s robust and diversified economy.

U.S. Multi-Family Development

The “all-in” cost of home ownership in many large U.S. cities is increasing at a faster rate than incomes with more U.S. households renting than at any point in the past 50 years. Meanwhile, the supply of affordable rental housing options in many urban centres has fallen well below this increasing demand. Together with our developer partner, PMG and through our Society Platform we are re-defining urban living by offering a unique and market leading way to affordably live, work and play in the most desirable locations within major U.S. cities.

Spotlight: Denver, Colorado

One of the fastest growing U.S. metro areas, Denver’s strong job market, attractive lifestyle and relative cost of living are attracting people from across the U.S. With a large and growing millennial population, our Society Denver project will fill a gap in the marketplace for attainably priced product with a high degree of amenitization and social lifestyle programming in a prime urban location.

Land Development

Significant value in residential land development can often be achieved when acquiring land and taking it through the municipal planning approval process. A highly fluid process, deep industry expertise and experience is critical in navigating the various aspects of legislative framework and planning process. As active managers we maintain optionality and diligently assess our monetization strategies including selling projects upon completion of the approvals process.

Spotlight: Greater Toronto Area

A lack of available development land in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) combined with an onerous and often-times elongated planning process continue to be critical factors in limiting the availability of new home supply in the region. Meanwhile, the demand for housing in the GTA has been driven by a growing population and the area’s robust and diversified economy.

Value-Add

A portable investment strategy that allows us to flexibly invest in any North American market that possesses strong market fundamentals, robust demand for rental housing and a constrained rental supply. We focus on acquiring apartment rental properties and repositioning them through a combination of strategic capital investment and efficient operations. We seek to acquire these assets for below their replacement cost and invest to improve them while generating strong, risk-adjusted returns for our investors and improving the living environments of our tenants.

Spotlight: Montreal, Quebec

The second most populous metropolitan area in Canada, Montreal exhibits strong economic fundamentals, robust population growth and rising homeownership costs have supported a growing demand for adequate rental housing.
