Balfour Pacific invests and manages assets in the United States occasionally acquiring properties that are in need of improvements to their common spaces, such as lobbies, common areas and amenity spaces to increase the value of their investments.

Both the Itasca Buildings have been designed in collaboration with SSDG’s One Global partner, Partner’s By Design (PBD) from of Chicago and the local Property and Project Management Team, Hamilton Partners. SSDG has lead the schematic design and design development portions of the projects while PBD has spearheaded the site investigation, construction documentation and will be responsible for construction administration. This great partnership has enabled us to seamlessly serve the both the needs of our Vancouver based client and building management team in Itasca. For each project we have provided solutions that meet the innovation, budget and aesthetic that Balfour Pacific is looking for while also working with the local teams in each location to address and respect the specific and unique functional requirements.
