Context has helped shape the skyline of downtown Toronto more than almost any other developer in the market. One of the reasons for their prominent success is the impressive experience of their President Howard Cohen, a man who’s made it his life’s mission to shape the landscape of Toronto. This developer has defined the norm for new developments in the city by introducing a new style of design – a style that has gone on to define the identity of the city. This is also one of the most recognized and decorated developers in the city, which is evidenced by their numerous awards and accolades.
Howard Cohen has perhaps done more to make Toronto what it is today than any other man in the industry. His achievements began when he accepted the position of Chief City Planner in the 1970’s. This was a time when conventional thought was leading citizens to buy houses in the suburbs and commute to the city for work, but Howard sought to change all that.
As Chief City Planner, he made sweeping policy changes and regulation amendments that would make it possible for more residential projects to be built in the downtown city core. This may be the first action that catalyzed the sequence of events that has made Toronto what it is today. His next job was as President of the Harbourfront Corporation. This was the federal agency that was responsible for transforming Toronto’s waterfront from an abandoned industrial wasteland to one of Canada’s most prominent tourist attractions.
This developer has done more to shape the identity of Toronto than anyone else. Since the 1970’s, their President and founder has been working on laying the groundwork for his vision of making Toronto a highly dense city standing on the foot of the Great Lake of Ontario. He, along with his partners, has characterised the landscape of the city by constructing the defining minimalist structures in the city’s downtown core. The recognition they’ve received from the industry’s institutions speaks for itself, as the company continues to evolve and define this city’s identity.
