A dry clean­ing mag­nate who got into large-scale real es­tate with a bang: The One, his 85-floor build­ing at Canada’s best-known in­ter­sec­tion, Yonge and Bloor, will be fin­ished in 2022 or 2023.

They’ve built some of the most sought-af­ter ad­dresses in the city—One Bed­ford (home to the mayor, among oth­ers) and the Toy Fac­tory Lofts.

The com­pany that led the re­de­vel­op­ment of Re­gent Park and built Fes­ti­val Tower atop the Bell Light­box had an­other suc­cess­ful year, start­ing or fin­ish­ing ap­prox­i­mately 2,000 units.
