We are a private company with real estate holdings in Western Canada. We are known for being entrepreneurial, with a strong operational competency, integrity and a long history of solid relationships. Our leadership team has partnered with significant public and private sector companies, on nearly every class of real estate – mixed-use, commercial, and residential. We are pleased to apply that experience to today’s urban environment.
We live in one of the best cities in the world. Urban real estate has experienced tremendous growth in demand, both for housing and for commercial space to host the fast-changing workforce. Within that landscape, there are plenty of opportunities – but we must discover them. At Serracan, we particularly like to work in locations with the regenerative power to change our neighbourhoods, and our cities, for the better.
CITY BUILDING TAKES TIME
Vancouver is an incredible place to live, but like many young and desirable cities, it faces real challenges as it grows. Our focus is on providing a variety of housing forms and creative work environments in projects that can be readily connected to diverse amenities and transportation options. We believe this approach will have a positive impact on our communities and city – for the long term.
SERRACAN CITY LIVING
This is our signature platform to design and develop residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects that address the unique opportunities and challenges of our city.
We have come to appreciate the profound value of taking all kinds of urban locations and transforming them into thriving civic, commercial, social, and residential hubs.
Over time, we have learned that there are no formulas for these kinds of projects. Every situation is different. Each has unique problems and, most importantly, its own untapped potential. To realize this potential, we make decisions efficiently, without bureaucratic delays, to facilitate business transactions for everyone’s benefit. Our process usually follows this sequence:
the urban sites with the most potential. Rezoning is often necessary. We are known in the industry for our successful track record of rezonings.

BUILD + CREATE
