Manager of Planning & Development @ Milani Group
Company: Milani Group
Position: Manager of Planning & Development
Location: Greater Toronto Area (GTA)
The Milani Group is a legacy family business who have been acquiring and developing land assets around the GTA for over 60 years. With a focus on residential development and infill projects, their strength has been converting unique assets into premium housing developments.
Their reputation for execution is second to none and they have been fortunate to build strong relationships at both the provincial and municipal levels that have ensured they remain active
participants in urban planning discussions.
In the last decade they have focused on several key land strategies that can now be realized with the urban boundary changes and reduction of red tape to meet new housing needs. While they are publicly often in debate on key projects, they maintain a low profile from a business perspective. Very few private developers have been able to realize the opportunities they have, the humility within the team and the fiscal success they have attained which makes this unique opportunity to join Milani Group very appealing for an experienced development planner.
