We have had a fantastic summer and hope you have too!

We are now sold out of all three buildings at HQ in Surrey – and construction has begun! We successfully launched our newest community in New Westminster, Capitol – and have just 1 home remaining. Construction is also well underway at Madison & Dawson in Brentwood!

The Porte Team continues to grow! We’ve recently welcomed three new members to our team; Louis Kwan as our Development Coordinator, Candice Zhang as our Accountant, and Emily Paris as our Culture Coordinator & Receptionst.

Porte In the Community

Over the past 50 years Porte has been building communities and enriching lives through the development, ownership and management of property. We create places where people love to live, work and play. We are committed to strengthening the communities we work in so they last for generations.

We are humbled to be able to support people and charities in every location we do business. This year we launched our new Porte Cares Program. We reached out to the community and asked charities to submit an application for funding. We were thrilled to have received over 30 applicants! Through this program we were able to present donations to both the Women’s Rape Crisis Center and The KidSafe Project Society. These companies are doing extraordinary charitable work and we are humbled to be able to support them.


Final Home at Capitol

We launched our newest development, Capitol – a collection of 1 to 3 bedroom hillside homes in New Westminster. We’ve had an outstanding response to Capitol and are now down to one final home, a 2 bedroom penthouse. Priced at $719,900, this home features bedrooms large enough to fit a king, a kitchen built for entertaining, spa-inspired bathrooms and an oversized balcony (Click here to view the floorplan). The Presentation Centre will be closing soon, so if you are considering making Capitol home, we encourage you to visit us before it’s too late. Construction is slated to begin this Fall, with completion expected Summer 2019. 

Madison & Dawson Construction Progress

Construction at Madison & Dawson in Brentwood is well underway, we are now up to the sixth level and roofing has begun. We are excited to welcome 92 happy homeowners in 2018!

Tenant Appreciation BBQ

The team had the opportunity to check in with our tenants and their employees on how they are enjoying their space with Porte.
