Under the guidance of founder and CEO Howard Sokolowski, Metropia has grown into one of Toronto’s most dynamic developers. The company is driven by a set of four core values: integrity, community, quality and customer care. Adhering to these principles has allowed the company to successfully oversee the completion of numerous cutting-edge developments throughout the GTA. In the process, Metropia has also made extensive donations to local charitable organizations and events.
Since Metropia’s founding in 2009, Sokolowski and his team have placed the utmost focus on creating livable communities. First, the company chooses sites with good transportation access, and then works to preserve the surrounding natural setting to the maximum possible extent. They also work to ensure each new community is beneficial to both new residents and longtime inhabitants alike. To achieve these results, Metropia operates with transparency and collaboration as their highest priorities. Working closely with renowned architects, craftsmen and interior designers allows the company to deliver buildings and interiors that blend functionality with visual appeal. Finally, Metropia retains a highly-qualified team whose members provide years of experience at every phase of the development process. The company is then able to guarantee excellent customer service at every stage of the development process.
Queen and Portland. A great example of mixed-use development, Queen and Portland is located in one of Toronto’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Frequent transit service and separated bike lanes along Adelaide and Richmond make this development perfectly situated for those who live car-free. Inside the building there is a rooftop terrace, a barbecue area and an exercise room.
Exhibit Residences. This 32-storey tower demonstrate’s Metropia’s commitment to visually stunning architecture. Appearing to be a stack of four cubes, Exhibit sits directly across Bloor Street from the Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto. Available amenities include a caterer’s kitchen, guest suites and a garden. In addition, the building sits near the interchange of two subway lines, offering easy access to much of the city.
