What we offer

Mattamy is embarking on a journey to become the most respected, homeowner-centric condominium brand in the GTA with the recent launch of a dedicated urban development division. This is part of an ambitious initiative to expand and enhance our multi-family offerings in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and create the next generation of mixed-use urban communities. Mattamy's new GTA Urban Division has a large growth mandate that will be fueled by our current collection of 40 high-rise projects / multi-family developments within our GTA master-planned communities and an aggressive acquisition plan for single and multi-tower developments. With all this growth, we are excited to be expanding; moving from our current location in Vaughan to brand new offices in the West end of Toronto with direct access to the Bloor-Danforth Subway line!
