Design

Harhay Developments works hand-in-hand with architects to design unique buildings that become an iconic part of Toronto’s urban fabric. No two buildings in our portfolio are alike, but we are equally proud of all of them. We believe that mixed-use buildings are the best way to foster livable, vibrant neighbourhoods, and we create modern condos and contemporary commercial spaces that are comfortable, beautiful and easy to live in.

Development

Our small team hand-picks only the best sites for our iconic projects. We evaluate the sites from a development perspective and factor in their livability and constructability. We believe that the neighbourhood is often the best amenity a condominium can have, and always keep our clients in mind when selecting a new location.
