CEO, WEST­BANK PROJECTS CORP. PRE­VI­OUSLY #3, 2017 As the world awaits Van­cou­ver House by star­chi­tect Bjarke In­gels, its de­vel­oper is keep­ing busy with the rest of his $10-bil­lion port­fo­lio, in­clud­ing an­other In­gels-de­signed condo planned for Toronto. Per­haps Gille­spie’s most am­bi­tious project in 2018, how­ever, was the launch of the Creative Hous­ing So­ci­ety (CHS), whose aim is to part­ner with govern­ment to build 50,000 units of aŒord­able rental hous­ing, pri­mar­ily in Toronto and Van­cou­ver... though those plans hit a speed bump in Au­gust when CHS’S high-pro‘le CEO, Jen­nifer Keesmaat, quit to run for mayor of Toronto, and with the pre­dicted mas­sive change in Van­cou­ver’s city coun­cil, his get-any­thing-through rep­u­ta­tion may take a hit.
