Our Purpose

Our aim is to build a principled and lasting real estate development brand with a diversified stream of rental income from large-scale logistics and industrial properties, multi-modal rail infrastructure, and rental housing across Canada.

 

Here’s what matters to us:

GREAT LAND

Identifying and focusing on resilient, and growing real estate asset classes that hold value in the face of economic, environmental, and social changes.

GREAT PEOPLE

Hiring and working with industry leaders and innovators to bring progressive, future-proof, and forward-thinking design to real estate development.

RECOGNIZING OUR RESPONSIBILITY

Recognizing and respecting the responsibility we have as real estate developers to — society, the environment, our investors, and our clients and tenants.

NETWORK THINKING

Using network thinking that recognizes the interconnectivity and synergies that exist between our great people and our great land.

ACTING WITH INTEGRITY

Ensuring that our actions and projects truly live up to our core principle of “integrity at the heart” by taking an honest and honourable approach to business.

DIVERSE INCOME STREAMS

Developing a balanced real estate and investment portfolio with three distinct asset classes, with the goal of fostering regular and consistent returns for the company and our investors.

A Carbon-Neutral Developer

Meeting the challenge of climate change is a core part of our philosophy. Low and zero carbon developments deliver significant advantages to both tenants and communities, and we aspire to be a carbon-neutral developer. We’re committed to developing projects that will be premier examples of environmental leadership.

We’ve invested in building technologies, on-site renewable energy, building controls systems, and energy demand management to support our carbon neutral targets and commitment to high-performative development.

In addition to the environmental imperative, we believe strongly that carbon pricing will provide significant revenue and investment potential in real estate development, and that our identified asset classes will allow us to take advantage of these opportunities.

Meet Our Team

At Avenue 31, integrity is at the heart of everything we do. All our processes and decisions are aimed at adhering to this core principle shared by each member of our dynamic team.
