A partnership aimed at supporting Canadian businesses, the public sector and real estate owners become leaders in the global movement to advance human health and well-being through better buildings
Greybrook, a Toronto-based real estate and health care private equity firm, along with two Canadian private investment firms, announced today their investment in and partnership with Delos, a New York-based wellness real estate and technology company. The partnership establishes Delos’ local presence in Canada through the formation of Delos Canada with a mission to help Canadian businesses, real estate owners, and the public sector advance human health and well-being through the buildings and spaces we inhabit every day.
“For nearly a decade, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading experts in the health, building and behavioral sciences including world-renowned medical institutions such as Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “The establishment of our partnership with respected senior Canadian business leaders enables us to further bring this research into practice globally to help advance health and well-being in Canada.”
Greybrook has been investing in residential real estate development and transformative health care businesses for nearly 20 years. “With a portfolio of residential and commercial real estate at various stages of development totalling in aggregate over 43 million square-feet of projected density, and our experience investing in and growing health care businesses, joining forces with Delos, a global leader at the intersection of health and real estate, was a natural fit for our organization,” said Sasha Cucuz, Partner at Greybrook Capital, and Board Member, Delos Canada.
Along with its Delos Canada investment partners, which include SummitNorth, led by Frank Vettese, former CEO of Deloitte Canada; and former Greybrook development partner Paul Golini, previously Executive Vice President and Co-Founder of Empire Communities, Greybrook will play a critical role supporting the Delos Canada team in working with the real estate development community, industry leading Canadian businesses and all levels of government to help implement Delos’ evidence-based products and solutions in offices, schools, long-term care facilities, public venues, and new residential communities across the country.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a paradigm shift and brought to the forefront how critical it is to consider the impact of our interior spaces and real estate on human health and to account for this impact in places we spend our time today and everything we build going forward. We firmly believe Delos and its subsidiaries can help businesses across all industries adopt solutions and standards to successfully and safely operate in what will be our new normal,” noted Cucuz.
