Bringing Land To Life

Our Vision

At Genstar Development Company, our legacy is obvious. It's on the ground in the hundreds of communities that we have created since 1950 all across Canada and the United States - and it's a legacy we're tremendously proud of.

"Our vision has always been to stand out from the crowd"

Frank Thomas Chief Executive Officer

Our vision has always been to stand out from the crowd, whether measured by fairness, integrity, professionalism, or achievement in building financial value. To achieve this, our strategy has been to ensure a deep understanding of our industry, our competitive environment and the needs of our consumer. This has been and remains dependent upon the talent and passion of the people who work here. Accordingly, over the years we have aggressively recruited others who share our culture and values, and we have brought together the best professionals in the industry to ensure the optimum blend of entrepreneurialism, insight and experience.

We are very proud of the reputation and strong working relationships we have developed with our suppliers, contractors, consultants, government officials, builders, other developers, joint venture partners and investors alike. Our goal is to capitalize on our past by continuing to replenish our asset base in both traditional greenfields as well as other forms of real estate investments. We feel more prepared than ever to meet the challenges ahead, and we look forward with excitement. Clearly, Genstar's best years have yet to come.

Investing

Our team is constantly searching for what will become the next successful Genstar community.

We are always looking for opportunities to acquire land, form new joint ventures or place equity funds in projects. Our investment strategy includes direct purchases of real estate and equity financing for builders or developers. We invest in transactions at varying levels of completion: raw land development, land entitlement properties, partially completed residential developments and finished lots. Alternative investment opportunities include select fee-build opportunities, a model purchase program and a program to allow land banking of a builder's existing assets.

Our flexible capital structure allows Genstar to invest in transactions ranging in size and risk depending on the dynamics of a transaction or market. Typically, we work with partners who are relationship-oriented builders, developers or land owners with high integrity, strong operational and financial controls, and quality reputation within the markets they operate.
