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.
