A Proven Strategy

In anticipation of emerging consumer and demographic trends impacting the commercial real estate landscape, RioCan was an industry leader in initiating a major market mixed-use development strategy. Our strategy focuses on serving high density areas and adapting the portfolio for best possible use, to generate quality income and create unitholder value.

Curating Our Tenant Base

Prioritizing stability and high-quality income, RioCan has evolved our tenant mix to focus on necessity-based and service-oriented tenants, while reducing exposure to potentially vulnerable retail concepts. Tailoring our tenant base so that consumers have everything they need in one place has led to a strong and diversified tenant mix.

Reimagining Our Properties

Through bold redevelopment projects, RioCan converts our existing, transit-friendly properties into vibrant, mixed-use communities including office and residential spaces.

We recognized the development potential inherent in our portfolio early on and gained a head start on zoning, resulting in a deep pipeline totalling over 40M square feet.

Always Adapting

RioCan’s team is always looking ahead, anticipating trends and adapting our portfolio to strengthen our market position, capitalize on value creation opportunities, and build Canada’s strongest portfolio of urban mixed-use, transit-oriented assets.
