The core of Westbank’s mission is to create a body of work with a high degree of artistry that helps foster more equitable and beautiful cities. Westbank is active across Canada, Japan and in the United States, with projects including residential, hotels, retail, office, rental, district energy, affordable housing and public art. Established in 1992, we are one of North America’s leading developers, with offices in Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Seattle and Tokyo, and over 50 billion dollars of projects completed or under development. Westbank is driven by the belief that beauty and culture in all forms and in the broadest definitions, are essential to human existence. In committing our efforts fully towards the fight for beauty and the creation of culture, we have evolved beyond the definition of a traditional real estate development firm, to become a cultural practice and a platform for creative collaboration.
