In conversation with: Knightsbridge CEO Will Smith

Longtime Toronto developer shares a tour of The Well, discusses Canada's commercial real estate market

In a multi-part interview, Knightsbridge Development Corp. chief executive officer Will Smith joins host Howard Drukarsh for a walk around Toronto's massive new downtown The Well complex, and offers some perspective on the city's commercial real estate market.

Knightsbridge was part of the development management team for the project (led by developers RioCan REIT, Allied and DiamondCorp.) at the huge new downtown Toronto complex, and Smith shows off a portion of the project in a brief walkabout.

The Well borders Front, Spadina and Wellington streets, and comprises 1.1 million square feet of office, 500,000 square feet of retail and food services, and 1,700 residential units spread throughout multiple buildings, all connected to a three-level retail base.

In the second portion of their discussion, Smith and Drukarsh talk about the new construction market in Toronto amid the ongoing challenging conditions many companies are facing.

Smith also shares his views on commercial real estate investment interest in Canada relative to other parts of the world. 

Knightsbridge, which is based in Toronto, has offices across North America and Europe.
