Since starting in the King Spadina area in 1995, Urban Capital Property Group has gradually expanded across the country. They have now successfully completed projects in cities ranging from Edmonton in the west to Halifax in the east. Founders David Wex and Mark Reeve have achieved the perfect mix of visionary thinking and a development process rooted in pragmatism-with highly positive results. No matter where the location, Urban Capital aims to deliver properties that offer high-end, functional and sustainable living in exciting locations.
The locations in which Urban Capital Group has its roots are indicative of the company’s approach to community building. Before and into 1990s, the area along King Street just west of Downtown Toronto was in the midst of a steep decline. Because of its development of several condo and loft projects in the area, Urban Capital was one of the first to invest in its revitalization. As a result, they gained a reputation for innovative and trendsetting projects, and King West became one of the city’s most exciting districts. The company recognizes that higher densities are the future of real estate, particularly in the GTA. In order to ensure its status as a leader in the field, Urban Capital has strengthened its focus on innovation. In particular, the best way to build taller or larger buildings on small sites has emerged as a focus.
Nicholas Residences. With a sleek and tasteful exterior, this 35-storey tower fits right in amongst the luxury buildings of Yorkville. To compliment the fabulous low-rise in the area, a podium of townhouses sits at street level. Inside, residents can take advantage of an outdoor rooftop terrace, an exercise and a lounge (complete with a fireplace).
Charlotte Lofts. Located in the heart of the Fashion District, Charlotte Lofts boasts high ceilings and huge windows. Notably, the building includes a brick facade on lower floors and lighter materials on higher ones. This design allows it to maintain a unique visual appearance. In addition, Union Station, Kensington Market and Queen Street West are all within walking distance.
