Our Mission:

Greenwin invests in people and places to create exceptional, inclusive rental communities - one building at a time.

At our core, we’re not just about creating financial value. We look at each asset as our own. This fuels our ability to develop lasting relationships with stakeholders; decades-long partnerships that are based on transparency and trust.

  • We put people first by creating a culture where everyone feels a sense of trust and belonging
  • We exceed the expectations of our clients, partners and tenants by making responsible, transparent, data-driven business decisions
  • We challenge the status quo and find new ways to innovate to create shared value for all
  • We get the job done right the first time around and prepare our properties to stand the test of time for generations to come

Headquartered in Toronto, our company has a combined staff of over 500 dedicated employees. As the property manager for over $3.3 billion in real estate assets, Greenwin is known as a leader in multi-family housing, non-profit and affordable housing, social housing and commercial properties. Our portfolio spans across major urban centres in Central and Eastern Canada, including more than 1 million square feet of commercial space and 24,000 residential units; over 5,000 of which are affordable housing, non-profit housing and Toronto Community Housing units.  

1948: The Beginning

The roots of Greenwin stretch back to 1948, when the Greenwin Construction Company was first founded by Lipa Green and Arthur Weinstock to build single-family homes in Toronto. 

1950s

In the early 1950s, at a time when more conventional experts did not share our confidence we emanated a public preference for apartment living— particularly close to the central area of the city. 

1960s & 1970s

In the 60s and 70s, Greenwin built more than 10,000 residential units, including single-family homes, condominiums, rental apartment complexes and affordable housing. 

1978

Since 1978, we have transformed Toronto's skyline through our involvement in some of the city's most iconic properties, such as midtown's Castle Hill townhomes, The Ports condominiums at Yonge and St.Clair, and Queen's Park Place in the Bay Street corridor.

1980s & 1990s

Throughout the 80s and 90s, we were instrumental in the development of many of Toronto's leading hospitals, including Mount Sinai Hospital, the Scarborough Hospital, the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, the Wellesley Hospital, and North York General Hospital.

Present Day

Today, in addition to providing best-in-class management, construction and development services, Greenwin has earned a reputation as an expert in repositioning under-performing properties. 

A History Of Transforming Skylines

The roots of Greenwin stretch back to 1948, when the Greenwin Construction Company was first founded by Lipa Green and Arthur Weinstock to build single-family homes in Toronto. In the early 1950s, Greenwin began residential development in Don Mills - one of Toronto's first suburban satellite communities. From there, we began building multi-unit residential properties. In the 60s and 70s, we built more than 10,000 residential units, including single-family homes, condominiums, rental apartment complexes and affordable housing.

Since 1978, when the late Harold Green created our construction and development arm, we have transformed Toronto's skyline through our involvement in some of the City's most iconic properties, including midtown's Castle Hill townhomes, The Ports condominiums at Yonge and St. Clair, and Queen's Park Place in the Bay Street corridor.

Greenwin has been instrumental in the redevelopment and enhancement of many of Toronto's leading hospitals. These include Mount Sinai Hospital, Scarborough Hospital, Princess Margaret, the Wellesley Hospital, and North York General.

Greenwin is now in its fourth generation of family leadership, with a legacy spanning from the development and property management of mixed-use landmarks like the Yonge-Eglinton Centre and Greenwin Square, to the multi-residential neighbourhood of Yonge and Davisville and North America's first-ever master-planned community in Don Mills. We have developed and constructed 10,000+ purpose-built rental apartment suites, with an additional 5,000 suites in our development pipeline. Greenwin is among Canada’s top affordable housing providers and has built upwards of 4,000 affordable, purpose-built rental housing units. Partnerships include all three levels of government, Toronto Community Housing, and social agencies.
