Dedicated to building better – with style, function, lasting materials, and a commitment to quality.

Building For Tomorrow

For 60 years, our multigenerational company has played a central role in Greater Toronto’s home building community. Though the times have changed, we’ve remained true to three core values: Integrity, Honesty, Loyalty.

From the beginning, we’ve recognized that we are long-term stakeholders in the communities we build, championing better communication within the industry; maintaining honest and lasting relationships with our stakeholders, trade partners, and community leaders; and caring about the quality of our workmanship, always striving to provide our clients with the best experience.

We believe in creating communities that are built to last and continuously strive to set industry the standards and exceed the expectations of our many homebuyers.

Quality and Integrity

Acorn Developments was established to satisfy clear and growing demand for homes built to a higher standard. From the outset, our team committed itself to developing a recipe for creating architecturally elegant and meticulously crafted living spaces. Our customers soon became repeat buyers, coming back for the customer service and quality construction synonymous with the Acorn brand.

Today, our renowned attention to fine finishes and details remain the backbone of our quality craftmanship and uncompromised standards.

Our History

Even though Acorn was founded in the 1980s, its roots can be traced back all the way to the 1950s through the development of several multi-family dwellings and a strong trade heritage.

In the early 1960s, the principals of the future Acorn, together with industry partners, formed BAIF Developments Limited, a progressive and fully integrated real estate development company that is responsible for creating many landmarks, such as the initial site development of the well-known Yonge and Eglinton Centre. Over three generations, our family business would evolve to include construction; industrial, commercial and residential property management; and high-rise, land, and residential development to its portfolio.

In 1988, Acorn was added to the group of companies and, in the decades since, we have been at the forefront of community growth in the 905, building some of the largest communities in York Region. Throughout the years, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to be trustworthy community builders, honourable citizens, and one of the best quality home developers in Southern Ontario.

Community Involvement

At Acorn, we are invested in the longevity and success of each community. The Acorn commitment to customer care extends beyond the point of sale, and is evident in the investment time and support we put back into our communities. We take great pride in assisting a wide range of local initiatives, community events, sports leagues, local arts and theatre programs, and fundraising programs, and we strive to remain supportive to our communities as they grow.
