About us

Who we are

Core Development Group Ltd. is a Toronto-based real estate development company formed by Corey Hawtin, a third generation real estate developer. Through our joint venture partnerships and strategic associations with leading affiliate firms, we create unique urban developments that combine innovative architectural design with high quality construction.

Acting on behalf of our investors and for our own account, Core actively sources, capitalizes, develops and manages a wide range of real estate projects. We also offer a comprehensive range of development and project management services to our clients and joint venture partners.

Our Approach

Direct Deals

Through extensive lead networks, we source development opportunities before they become widely marketed, thereby limiting market competition.

Thinking Differently

We find opportunities in unlikely places by envisioning possibilities others don’t see. Our considered sites also include those developmentally constrained or with planning challenges.

Open Process

Our approach to acquiring and developing properties is open, honest and fully transparent with our investors, clients and joint venture partners. This collaborative mindset has garnered us a high degree of trust and loyalty.

Investor Oriented

We only select opportunities that meet robust minimum return thresholds and where maximum value can be created for our investors. Investment risk is further mitigated through planned multiple exit strategies.

Full Service Support

Managing a real estate project entails a significant degree of capacity and expertise. We offer a comprehensive range of services for all phases of the development process, from project initiation to completion.
