Creating Value Through


There are no bad buildings.

Repurposing for value

Metro Bay Development specializes in creating exciting new opportunities for buildings that others think should be demolished.

Transforming an old cold storage building to hip lofts, or a large industrial warehouse into a jobs center, we find the most economical way to repurpose, reuse, recreate value for undervalued assets.

Pulling ideas together

Metro-Bay has a unique approach to projects, often engaging the community in a public/private partnership, to find new uses for tired places. We look to find the highest and best feasible use, that can be pulled off when all resources are tapped to their fullest potential, from tax credits to CRA funding, we leave no stone unturned.

Crafting the master plan

Finding partners, identifying pain points, and building a plan, timeline and budget is where our clients get the most value. We take all the hurdles, line them up and devise the plan to win the race to a completed project. We’ve done this for single buildings to plans for entire urban neighborhood revitalization.

Selling the solution

Yes, we can sell real estate, crafting unique marketing messages and precision targeting. Often, this is the easiest part: after we’ve done the transformation. Our most valued resource is selling the vision to those who haven’t seen the potential or are afraid of change.
