It would be easy to argue that Rockport Group has shaped Toronto’s real estate landscape more than any other company. In 1968, they were the first in Ontario to register as a Condominium Corporation. Thus, they pioneered a building style that currently dominates the industry. This act demonstrated Rockport’s commitment to innovation, which has been their guiding philosophy ever since. The company has assembled a diverse portfolio that focuses on mid-rise and high-rise residential developments. They have also worked on numerous commercial and industrial properties.
Founded in 1957 by Burt Winberg, Rockport is now run by his son Jack and grandson Daniel. Together, they have assembled a team of industry professionals who have experience with all phases of the development process. The company oversees all phases of development, from planning through to construction and property management. Rockport has also forged working relationships with top designers and architects. This combination of skills and experience allows the company to provide clients with on-time results and tasteful interior and exterior designs. In addition, they use only the most sustainable and high-quality building materials, as well as state-of-the-art construction techniques. Rockport Group has been on the cutting edge of the region’s development industry for virtually all of its existence, and their embrace of industry trends ensure that that will continue.
