Real Estate Developments
As the real estate development division of the G&S Group of Companies, Greatwise Developments focuses on both residential and commercial developments and re-developments of our own and joint venture properties in major Ontario centres such as Toronto and Ottawa.
So, what makes Greatwise unique? It starts with our commitment to building quality, as well as our insistence on gathering only the industry’s most highly-skilled professionals to construct the kind of lifestyle communities that generations of families would be proud to call home. Part of that approach means caring for the environment. Our firm has voluntarily embraced sustainable, low-impact building and enhanced building envelope construction practices that consistently exceed government standards and dramatically reduce consumers’ energy costs.
Our core services include:
Property Acquisition We constantly analyze and recommend the acquisition of properties with development and re-development potential, both for our joint-venture partnerships and within our own portfolio. Our property acquisition services include highest and best land use analysis and recommendation, management and financial approval feasibility consulting and financing arrangements.
Density Intensification and Municipal Approval We’ve earned a reputation for successfully securing municipal approvals to increase density on both new and previously-developed parcels of land, then redeveloping existing and new building components simultaneously to minimize costs and maximize income potential for our partners.
Project Management Our comprehensive Project Management Service covers all stages of development for both our own and our joint-venture projects including land acquisition, financial pro-forma analysis, financing arrangements, project approval, concept design, consulting team coordination, marketing, sales, legal, construction management, building occupancy and registration, and property management. The goal: to deliver projects on-time, on or under-budget and to the highest standards—every time.
Joint Ventures Our Integrated Real Estate Model allows us to manage a wide range of joint venture requirements including property acquisition, density intensification, municipal approval and project management services.
