About the Branch

The Real Estate Branch is responsible for providing a strategic and integrated city-wide lens to govern real estate based primarily upon financial sustainability. This encompasses the complete civic land life cycle, including planning and development, acquisition, inventory and governance, appraisal, leasing and management, to sales. 

The branch also advances economic development strategies to support Council’s vision for a vibrant and inclusive city that attracts investment and provides a high quality of life, thus ensuring ongoing sustainability and success.

Branch Services

The major areas of responsibility of Real Estate include:

Civic Property Services

Civic Property Services works to leverage undeveloped and/or unused City land and infrastructure into creative developments that align with Council’s strategic directions and our City’s needs. This allows the City to make better use of existing infrastructure, which increases the City’s fiscal efficiency and performance and helps build a more vibrant, compact, and sustainable city.
