About Woodcliffe

Woodcliffe is a boutique residential and commercial real estate development company. We sensitively restore and creatively realize remarkable developments that not only improve their neighbourhoods but elevate the city as a whole. Our skilled team is passionate about setting a new standard for intelligent, innovative, and considered design. Woodcliffe’s late founder, Paul Oberman, believed that neighbourhoods thrive when their architectural heritage is preserved and repurposed. Our revitalized developments serve as the backdrop for community interactions and are a testament to his philosophy of creating city-defining projects.

Today, this vision continues to serve as our guidepost even as our focus grows to encompass residential and mixed-use real estate development. We remain steadfast in our dedication to city-building through design-led projects, carefully stewarding the legacy of our built heritage.
