Choice Properties is one of Canada’s largest real estate investment trusts (REITs). While the company’s success came largely through the development of retail properties, they have since begun to diversify into residential and mixed-use projects. Yet no matter the type of building, their commitment to offering buyers and investors the highest standards of quality and a positive return-on-investment never wavers. In recent years, Choice Properties REIT has made sustainability the centerpiece of their development strategy. In recognition of the importance of environmentally-friendly designs and plans, they have included the latest technologies in all of their buildings and chosen site locations that allow residents to live car-free.
