We carefully select all our sites and combine thoughtful design with exceptional access to amenities and innovative programming to support healthy choices that enhance well-being.
Our communities embrace diverse populations, facilitate housing accessibility and offer the many positive benefits of a well-connected social life.
We build strong, trusting and collaborative relationships through attentive design, engaging programming and responsive customer service.
Sustainability Goals & Targets
Our goal is to make quality housing affordable for everyone through maximizing access to government grants and programs.
As a builder of communities, we are an active partner in truth and reconciliation with Canada’s First Nations.
We include accessible suites in all our projects and build communities that suit every lifestyle.
The 'Hey Neighbour!' Collective
We believe that strong, sustainable communities are fundamental to the social well-being of all Canadians. That’s why in 2018, we partnered with the City of Vancouver in the 'Hey Neighbour!' pilot project aimed at creating more socially connected rental housing. The pilot ran at The Remington building in Collingwood Village where residents were encouraged to organize fun social activities to bring their neighbours together. It was such a success, we've scaled the program across our residential rental portfolio in British Columbia.
As part of our commitment to improving the health and well-being of our communities, we’ve partnered with the Hey Neighbour Collective, a multi-stakeholder community of practice that supports the sociable design and programming of multi-unit housing. Sprung from the need to address the growing crisis of loneliness and social isolation in cities, we’re developing and testing creative approaches to fostering social connectedness in our vertical communities.
Celebrating our Community Connectors
In 2020, Concert Properties launched our Community Connectors program. We now have resident volunteers throughout all of our BC rental communities who are working together to co-create community activities big and small, to bring neighbours together and build social connectedness – especially during this time when it’s difficult to get together.
Our work with partners such as Happy City, provides residents the tools to create inclusive activities during times of physical-distancing. We’re adapting our approach to include small-scale and remote social activities focused on building social capital and resiliency.
Everyone deserves to live in a safe, healthy, and connected community. We believe strong meaningful relationships, a sense of belonging and inclusivity are the keys to making our communities vibrant, exciting places to live -- for generations to come.
In an effort to better understand how we can build community, and contribute to the health and social wellbeing of our residents, Concert Properties regularly surveys our rental communities. The data we gather directly feeds back in the design of our social sustainability programs, property management operations and the design of future projects.
Concert Properties recognizes that building community goes beyond the simple bricks and mortar of our assets, but is also reliant on how we operate these buildings and support our residents. We start with thoughtful design that improves the fabric of our communities and then take an active role in making them places for people to live, work, play and build social connections.
Our Social Sustainability principles, goals and targets embody our long-standing commitment to be the progressive leader in Canadian real estate for generations.
