About Urbanation

Urbanation was founded by Eve Lewis in 1981, when high-rise condominiums in Toronto were considered a niche product and represented a small component of the housing market. Fast forward three decades and condominiums have now grown to represent over half of all new home development, one third of all resale activity and one quarter of total rental apartment supply in the Greater Toronto Area.

By watching the industry evolve to its prominence through several market cycles, Urbanation has developed a deep and unparalleled understanding of the 'big picture' issues and detailed intricacies in the marketplace. Today's condominium market is highly competitive - being armed with accurate data and top-of-the-line analytics are critical elements of a successful strategy. Urbanation is proud to have the most active developers, lenders, and professional service suppliers as our clients.

As part of our ongoing commitment to remain at the forefront of GTA real estate market research, Urbanation fully acquired The Marsh Report in 2016, now reporting on all types of commercial property sales across the region

Urbanation is the authoritative source for information on Toronto's condominium market. No matter the questions, we've got the answers.
