The principals of PC Urban developed their approach throughout Western Canada and Washington State, through cycles of real estate both rich and lean. Now, brought together under one roof, we are a multidisciplinary group of extremely dedicated individuals focused on maximizing unrealized potential in ourselves, as well as in the properties we Re-Imagine.

This means we don’t depend on dogma, silos or excuses. The development team follows a “scrum” process to address problems and issues – solve it and move on.

Working through all facets of our real estate projects, we keep our eyes out for the unexpected solution, capitalizing on alternate approaches that might elude a more traditional developer. This creative drive delivers superior returns to all stakeholders: PC Urban, our partners, our tenants and the community.

If this fast-moving, dynamic environment excites you, get in touch. We don’t choose many to join our team, but for the nimble, open-minded and accomplished, solving big challenges brings many rewards

Robert enjoys all facets of property development from envisioning and approvals to marketing and construction and finally the delivery of a new home to a purchaser.  Robert has always operated under the mantra that regardless of what you are doing it should always be well designed and constructed.

The challenge of organizing, communicating and sharing the relevant tasks to interlock the pieces towards a whole, is both the work and the reward. Micheline keeps the PC Urban team running smoothly as the Administrator.
