Crown was proud to sponsor the 7th annual NAIOP Development Challenge featuring our properties 180 Dundas W and 123 Edward Street, collectively the Dundas Edward Centre.
Crown, along with NAIOP Greater Toronto believes this annual Development Challenge promotes and encourages its overall mission established by and for the members. The competition allows those in the Developing Leaders group to demonstrate their talents and skills to senior industry members through written and live oral presentations. By expanding Developing Leaders’ skill sets and networks we are empowering our future leaders today.
During the summer, professionals 35 years of age or under from all industry disciplines, as well as GTA-based university students, formed small diverse teams to create development proposals for a prominent site in Toronto. Mimicking a real life experience, the teams worked with the constraints of the actual site. Following a preliminary round of judging, the three finalist teams were selected by experienced industry practitioners.
On Awards Night, October 4, 2018 at the Toronto Region Board of Trade, live presentations were given by the finalist teams and a panel of judges selected the first, second and third place teams. The judges’ decisions were based on objective criteria provided at the outset of the competition, plus the depth and quality of the live presentations. Cash prizes will be awarded to all finalist teams.
Crown would like to congratulate the Schulich School of Business and University of Toronto Masters students who competed and won against 17 industry teams. Their team Four Corner Investments took home the grand cash prize of $10,000.
