Whether they’re direct holders, listed companies, owner/operators, investors/investment managers outsourcing their property management functions or third-party managers, the 26th annual Who’s Who in Canadian Real Estate survey results reflect the gamut of players providing and overseeing the spaces that drive Canada’s economy and house its populace.
This year, nearly 200 participants who collectively own and/or manage more than 2.2 billion square feet of space reported portfolio data. That includes more than a dozen boasting inventories surpassing 50 million square feet and a roughly equivalent complement maintaining less than 500,000 square feet. Big or small, all share similar priorities to enhance asset value, generate optimal income, meet the needs of occupants and operate efficiently.
The 2021 results once again highlight category leaders by property type and management structure, along with a comprehensive overview of all participating portfolios.
