Sustainable Equity Partners ("SEP") is a real estate investment firm focused on bringing energy-efficient and affordable multi-family housing to the Canadian market.
Our investment mandate is driven by 3 primary factors:
- multi-family rents tend to be insulated from economic downturns and provides a healthy hedge against an inflationary environment;
- the decline in housing affordability combined with long term immigration trends will continue to drive significant demand for rental housing in Canada; and
- high barriers to entry resulting from ever-increasing land costs, increase in construction costs and an arduous development approvals process.
SEP’s executive team is a multi-disciplinary group with vast experience in land development, construction, construction financing and ongoing asset management. Our executive team includes the principals of Pre-Con Builders Ltd. (“Pre-Con”), a 4th general real estate construction company with over 100 years of combined construction management experience. Unlike many construction companies, Pre-Con provides in-house working drawings, engineering, construction and project management services for new build projects, allowing SEP to keep its processes and associated project costs as efficient as possible. Please see here for some of the projects previously managed by Pre-Con.
SEP understands the need for affordable, accessible, and energy-efficient housing for Canadians, with our current projects being well above the energy-efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction guidelines set by the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings. As our name signifies, our aim is to provide long-term sustainable returns to our investors with multi-family development that meets the needs of today’s Canadians without compromising the ability of our country’s future generations to meet their own needs.
