The Daniels Corporation is one of Canada’s most visible and respected development firms. With a career in real estate stretching back decades founder John H. Daniels has helped reshape the urban form of cities throughout the GTA. His company has established itself as an industry leader in both sustainability and innovation, while also emphasizing the integration of local arts and culture into their projects. The company upholds a “people-first” philosophy, and has been an active participant in several government-led housing affordability programs.
The Daniels Corporation aims to exceed the sustainability standards laid out in the Ontario Building Code. As a result, several of the company’s buildings have been built to LEED Gold standards. The company also recognizes the importance of urban agriculture, and includes farmers’ markets and urban allotment gardens wherever possible. In addition, the company uses only the most environmentally friendly construction techniques. Daniels Corp. has also partnered with groups such as Artscape and Toronto Community housing to create cultural hubs on its sites-the most notable being the 60,000 square ft. Daniels Spectrum in the revitalized Regent Park. Finally, the company firmly believes in giving back to the communities that it is a part of, and has donated to a number of local charities.
