As the market continues to mature, southern Ontario’s home building industry keeps growing with new developers appearing every year. But while competition breeds excellence, it also created something else: a true and lasting friendship, one that lead to the unlikely collaboration of what should be industry rivals.

Diamond Kilmer Developments is a partnership between Diamondcorp and Kilmer Group, two titans of the regional real estate development industry that are allowing friendship to pave the way to a collaborative effort.

The origin behind this “supergroup” of industry talents extends far into the past where it crosses over a generation from previous era.

The relationship began many years ago when Eph Diamond, O.C. (co-founder of Cadillac Fairview) met Larry Tanenbaum, O.C. (Chairman of Kilmer Group and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment). As exception builders and promoters of Toronto interests, the two men found they shared much in common and became friends despite being industry competitors.

The mutual respect these two men had for each other was passed down to their sons, Ken Tanenbaum (Vice-Chairman of Kilmer Group) and Stephen Diamond (CEO of DiamondCorp and Chair of WaterfrontToronto), who decided to take their friendship to the next level by entering into a formal partnership with the creation of Diamond Kilmer Developments.

More than just shared admiration, the two sons also share a vision of making housing more affordable. Committed to addressing the challenges facing today’s urban homebuyers, Steve and Ken are pursuing a development strategy that delivers family-friendly, ground-related, and mid-rise housing in growing, transit-oriented neighbourhoods at competitive prices.
