We have been active in the management, leasing, construction and development/repositioning of retail and office space in the Canadian real estate market for the last 20 years. The portfolio of properties presently under our management comprises a total area of approximately 5 million square feet concentrated in the thriving Montreal and Toronto markets.
profitability by design
To create value, we rely on our in-depth knowledge of the Quebec and Ontario real estate markets. When we undertake the revitalization of a property, we draw inspiration from the building's design and the demographic profile of its trade area to create leasable space that is immediately relevant to the market.

|Le Boulevard was one of the first shopping centres in Canada. It was originally a strip mall, built in the eastern district of Montreal in 1952. Apart from its conversion into an enclosed mall in the late 1970s, the centre has not been touched prior to Crofton Moore's involvement in 2006.
Since that time, Le Boulevard has experienced impressive progress, thanks to significant renovations, an influx of new tenants, and a solid marketing approach. Today it has taken its position as a major player within its trade area.
|Formerly known as Place de la Mode, the building became Le 5800 as the market for loft industrial space dissipated and Crofton Moore began the process of converting it to office space. The company moved its headquarters into the property and major investments in revitalizing the facade, lobby, corridors, and signage have been recently made.
Crofton Moore incorporated a large square blue curtain wall onto its facade in order to distinguish itself within the Montreal marketplace.
Golden Square Centre
|Originally established in an industrial building, the Golden Square Centre has been converted into retail space.
As the property is located in an Asian community, Crofton Moore has transformed and enhanced the centre in order to make it the first choice for Asian consumers.
|Marché Central is one of the original and most successful retail power centres in the country. The construction, development and leasing of the mega centre's expansion were executed in five phases, and we contributed to the development of four of these phases.
Within the framework of this extensive project, we spearheaded the leasing of over 500,000 square feet of new retail space over a four-year period.
Since its inception, the Company has been associated with a wide range of development projects in the real estate marketplace. Click here
