Skye Mainstreet

From 2015 to the present, Skye's attention has been focused on acquiring and managing main street retail properties in prime Toronto locations and has assembled a portfolio of assets valued at approximately $55MM.   Skye is continually looking to grow its portfolio in this asset class and plans to ramp up its expansion in the coming years.  

The primary objective of the Skye Mainstreet business is to assemble and continually grow a portfolio of high quality, well located neighborhood commercial real estate primarily along main thoroughfares in the City of Toronto focusing on a few prominent retail nodes near significant redevelopment projects (Yonge Street, Riverdale, Leslieville, Bloor Yorkville, St. Clair and Bathurst and others).   We are constantly leveraging our considerable experience and expertise to source, evaluate, finance, lease and manage outstanding main street commercial real estate opportunities and to drive value through greater skill and efficiencies and ultimately seek exits through refinancing and redevelopment opportunities.  We predominantly target properties along key commercial nodes in the Greater Toronto Area and will make every effort to assemble properties to take advantage of efficiencies and with a view to future redevelopment potential. Assemblies are not crucial to our plan. We are content to have a presence on future development blocks to be able to participate in future opportunities as they might arise.
