Parallax

2 properties

Parallax Development Corporation is a real estate development company that has diverse assets throughout Canada and the United States. They pride themselves on their varied portfolio and their ability to get things done. They began as a company that was primarily concerned with the development of retail shopping plazas, but today they have become so much more.

This developer was originally started by Owen Lawson over 30 years ago. He and his partners approached real estate development with a sense of frivolity and companionship that rubbed off on Owen’s two sons, Stafford and Nigel.Behind the boardrooms and contracts, Owen and his partners would go into the ground level of the construction sites and bet on things like how many rats they could catch. Although they always knew that they wanted to pursue the real estate industry with their father, Nigel and Stafford also knew that it was important to earn it on their own terms rather than being handed something because of their birth.

Stafford always aspired to join his father, and he proved it by taking jobs in construction in high school. The jobs were far from glamorous, as he mostly picked up garbage in the construction sites and filed off paint from radiators. After high school, he completed an Undergraduate degree and McGill University, and then a Master’s of Science in Real Estate Development at Columbia University in New York. This is where he met his future business partner Michael Binder.
