About the Developer
Lee Development Group is a full-service Canadian real estate development company with international affiliations. Founded in 1988, the company quickly established a reputation for “unsurpassed quality at the best possible price”, a philosophy that is as true today as it was back then.
One of the company's first Canadian projects, the Ellington at Yonge and Carlton in downtown Toronto, was an unprecedented success. Completed in 1991, it is comprised of 200 luxury condominiums and main floor retail. Other landmark developments followed. In Scarborough City Centre, Lee developed Hillsborough Court I & II and May Tower I & II. All four buildings, a total of 996 condominium suites, sold in record time.
Internationally, Lee Associated Companies have, over the past two decades, built distinctive residential and commercial properties in the Far East and in North America. Included are landmark developments like the multi-million dollar, ultra-luxurious Double Bay Residences and Tai Tam Road Condominiums in Hong Kong.
Working with a dynamic team of highly acclaimed architects and designers, the Lee Development Group launched the Ellipse community whose construction ended in 2004. These twin, elliptical thirty-four-story residential towers have set new standards of architectural excellence and are a landmark presence in the Scarborough skyline.
Lee Development Group is proud of their accomplishments and equally proud that the company has maintained its Excellent Rating with the Ontario New Home Warranty program since 1991.
