VanMar Developments

A proud legacy is one that is often passed from one family member to another, a tradition often witnessed in the family-run business of many home developers. For VanMar Developments, legacy isn’t just a connection by blood, but about setting a positive example with clear social values and forging strong ties to their communities.

Best known for its top-tier quality homes, this developer has built up a following of loyal and repeat buyers that may not be aware of their commitment to the community and towards achievable sustainability.

Starting out from humble roots in framing and concrete construction, the Van Maren brothers cultivated this flourishing real estate developer for over thirty years until 2002 when two of the brothers left. At that time, Art Van Maren re-launched the company as VanMar Constructors Inc with a renewed sense of purpose, one demonstrated by the company’s decision to be involved with providing affordable housing and helping communities flourish.

Since then, VanMar has relocated to Cambridge, Ontario and completed more than 60 projects and over 6,000 building units across Canada, many of which are community-driven developments that includes nearly 2000 healthcare beds and seniors residences projects such as the Aspen Green healthcare facility in Vancouver.

For this developer, “giving back to the community” isn’t just a phrase to be brought up during charity drives, but a motivation that guides their business.

Over the past decade, VanMar has been involved with numerous social housing projects that help provide homes to modest income families. In collaboration with the non-profit Trillium Housing initiative, VanMar constructed 62 townhouse units in midtown Toronto that were offered mortgage-free to eligible applicants in 2018, a feat that will be repeated again at Pickering’s Maxx Urban Towns townhomes as well as in Hamilton.

And, in a nod towards their West Coast beginnings, this developer also has plans to construct affordable housing in Williams Lake, British Columbia, a job expected to be finished by 2019 by as many local subcontractors as possible.

In a perfect world, good intentions are always more than sufficient; while this is not usually enough on our mortal sphere, VanMar more than makes up for any shortfall with its award-winning, impeccably-built modern homes that are built to cater to urban lifestyles.
