PeakMade Real Estate Announces International Expansion into Canada Markets

ATLANTA, GA – March 21, 2024
– PeakMade Real Estate (“Peak”) has announced international expansion into the Canadian market, after having been awarded management assignments for four  properties totaling 1,500+ beds throughout the province of Ontario. This is PeakMade’s first international venture and represents a continued focus on expanding its property management platform into new markets.

“The expansion into the Canadian market has been the realization of a long-term strategy. We are excited to bring the Peak management culture and approach to a new market that we believe has great opportunity. We’re also thrilled to welcome our Canadian team to the Peak family.” said Casey Petersen, Chief Operating Officer.

PeakMade began strategically transitioning its Canadian portfolio throughout the last four months, beginning with Geo Central, a 554-bed new development community located in Kingston, ON., serving the students of Queens University. Geo will utilize geothermal energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions produced by the building by over 70 percent, which also lowers the utilities cost for all of its residents. The project is currently leasing and will open its doors to new residents on May 1st.

PeakMade also transitioned two additional Kingston properties in late Q4 of 2023: Unity Point, comprised of 309 total beds, and Unity Place, comprised of 350 beds. Both are located in downtown Kingston and just steps from Queens University and Kingston General Hospital.

Finally, PeakMade’s most recent Canadian transition, Avant, is located in downtown Toronto. The 342-bed property is directly across from Toronto Metropolitan University.

The PeakMade Canada platform has a dedicated management team led by Keith Long, Vice President, Canada.  Keith joined Peak with over 25 years of experience in student housing in the US and Canada, and has previous experience developing a student housing platform in Canada to over 8,000 beds in prior roles.

“I am very excited to bring Peak’s industry leading platform and award-winning Sales and Marketing approach to Canada with these initial amazing properties in Toronto and Kingston,” said Keith Long, Vice President, Canada.  “We see a lot of opportunities from coast to coast and are very excited about the future of student housing in Canada.”

PeakMade anticipates adding an additional 340 beds to their Canadian student housing portfolio over the next several months, and is actively building a pipeline of additional opportunities.
