Lancer Developments Limited has been the pre-eminent developer of rental housing in Southwestern Ontario for more than 20 years. Lancer brings honesty, integrity intelligence and tenacity to the development process.
At Lancer, the principals have worked together on the design, development, financing and ongoing management of a wide range of real estate ventures since 1973. Each of the managing principals possesses a degree in architecture and at least 30 years of experience in real estate development. They are supported by an experienced, qualified team of senior consultants, each with an advanced degree in a related field. Lancer's principals have, directly or in concert with others, developed hundreds of thousands of square feet of commercial space, many public and private institutional buildings, more than 2,000 apartment suites and hundreds of other residential dwellings from affordable housing to the most luxurious custom residences.
Lancer is focused on adding to the value of each project through careful design, excellent planning and effective development management. It is an indication of the esteem in which Lancer is held that it has been retained by government and financial institutions to help with the orderly completion of buildings that have been beyond the reach of others. Lancer is also regularly retained by others to provide development management services for their new buildings.

Lancer is proud of its continuing success in property development. Our results reflect a prudent and focused approach to our business; professional competence; effective, hands-on management; an entrepreneurial spirit; and a commitment to honesty, hard work and fair treatment of partners, tenants, suppliers, employees and all who work with us.
The principals of Lancer are active in the development, construction and operation of a diversified range of properties. These include high demand commercial and industrial space, retail centres and residential projects, particularly those designed for seniors. The range of locations across southern Ontario and the business mix avoids over-commitment to any local economy or property type, while facilitating effective management. Lancer is experienced in all facets of construction and development management. The company has special expertise in "acquisition rehabilitation" and conversion projects, renovating apartments and other buildings to modern standards.
Lancer is recognized for its ability to deliver - on time and within budget - projects that meet the needs of owners and tenants over the life of each building. With a strong and highly qualified staff, Lancer carries out its activities through corporate entities in which it retains a significant ownership interest as well as effective control, through the approvals and construction process.
In addition to our own projects, Lancer has provided consulting, construction management and facility management services to churches and other groups looking to develop their own affordable housing projects.
