Over the next ten to fifteen years, a massive redevelopment of the Regent Park neighborhood into a true mixed-use, mixed-income community for almost 13,000 residents.
The project's business plan is to use profits from the sale of over 3,000 market condominiums to help pay for the replacement of 2,083 new social housing units and contribute toward the construction of 700 new affordable rental units.
Concierge Plus, WebCanada’s online property management solution, is already playing a key role in this initiative.
By bringing condo developments like Paintbox and One Park West online, Concierge Plus will play a supporting role in communicating events and important information throughout the community. “We’re thrilled to be involved in a massive revitalization initiative such as this,” said Mike Little, Vice President of Business Development at WebCanada. “Concierge Plus is an online tool that organizes communities and makes them run greener, more efficiently, and with a true sense of connection among residents.”
It’s back in the office and back in the shade after a beautiful cruise around Toronto’s harbor front with the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario.
We were fortunate to be a part of ACMO’s nautical exploration of Lake Ontario and mingle with the industry’s leading residential community managers.
Well we made it!
We’ve just returned from Boston where we were exhibiting at the annual New England Condominium Condo Expo— the leading real estate tradeshow in New England. It was both successful and informative… but also an adventure!
Our beloved tradeshow booth was lost by a shipping company and we had but twelve hours to make an entirely new one. The Concierge Plus team pulled together and the result was a new booth we’re thrilled to exhibit with. Thankfully this was the only hitch in an otherwise fantastic weekend!
There’s a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path. Wise words first uttered by the Waschowski brothers and later echoed by Zappos.com CEO, Tony Hsieh, in his book, Delivering Happiness. The quote brings up a great point when seen in the context of corporate culture and client-facing branding, two often misaligned forces.
In early May, the Concierge Plus team headed west to be a part of the Community Association Institute’s Annual Conference at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas. For three days, we met and mingled with over one thousand property managers, board members, and industry leaders hailing from across the country, and across the pond.
Washington DC continues to outperform most housing markets in the US and economists are projecting continued demand due to historically low interest rates, strong job growth and supply constraints in the condo market. This was certainly apparent with the flood of attendees at the recent annual conference of the Washington Chapter of CAI (Community Association Institute). It was also clear that community managers and board members are looking for value for their communities.
In early March, the Concierge Plus team travelled to Miami for the South Florida Condo and HOA Expo. As we continue to grow our business in the US, it was great to meet with clients and new prospects and share thoughts on how communities are coming to rely on digital technology more and more (oh and it was a nice break from our wintery weather too).
ACMO/CCI Living in Balance Condo Conference to debut our new product, Concierge Plus. The Living in Balance conference brings together property managers and board members from condo corporations across Canada for two days of educational sessions, networking events and a large tradeshow. This year's event was the biggest yet, with over 1,200 attendees!
CP is an online platform for your property or community, designed to help you manage your property-specific day-to-day administrative tasks while connecting tenants, owners, association members, board members and management. We were thrilled to introduce Concierge Plus to the market with a beautiful new booth, designed by our in-house design team, Front60.
