Context Development

Context is a Toronto-based real estate developer, founded by President Howard Cohen. Since the 1970s, buyers have been moving further out of the downtown core of Toronto into the suburbs, but Howard Cohen was looking to buck that trend, and focus on building up, rather than out.

Originally founded by Howard and Steven Gross in 1997, Context has been focusing on providing mixed-use, affordable housing in the downtown core of Toronto, and as a result, has been in large part responsible for the iconic skyline of the city we see today.

Having built a number of high-profile projects like Library District in the Entertainment District, and Market Wharf, which sits next to the famous St. Lawrence Market, Context has built a portfolio of eye-catching condominiums that bring a densification, and rejuvenation to the Toronto downtown Core.

Recent projects

Library District
This striking tower sits near waterfront property as it is only steps away from Lake Ontario. It is located very close to walking trails along the lake, premier access to the Entertainment District, and access to many of Toronto’s most exciting neighbourhoods, so no matter what you’re looking for, it’s on your doorstep. Amenities include a steam room, media room and exercise room. It is located along Fort York Boulevard and construction was completed in 2014.

Market Wharf
This dynamic structure is located in St. Lawrence in Toronto’s heavily sought after east end. It borders the St. Lawrence Market, giving residents a chance at the best selection of food in the city. It is directly serviced by streetcars and buses, but Union Station is only a few minutes walk away. The condos are outfitted with stainless-steel, Energy-Star appliances. Their address is 1 Market Street and they were completed in 2013.
