About Us

John H. Emery is President of Fairmont Properties Ltd. one of Rosedale’s most trusted names in new construction of heritage homes, restoration of historical mansions, and luxury rentals in heritage environments. John Emery, upon graduating from Dalhousie University, entered the real estate development industry. Initially, he was involved with the development of the TD Centre in Toronto’s financial district. Subsequently, he became an executive at the well-respected commercial development company, Trizec (now Trizec-Hahn). During this period, he began to develop the ideas that would lead to his later success.

The initial plan was to restore Rosedale mansions and rent them as luxury apartments. The key elements were empathy and understanding of historic architecture, matched with an attention to craftsmanship and use of the finest materials. His ideas became a small business that has evolved into one of the most substantial custom builder/renovators in Rosedale. Neighbours and clients were so impressed with the quality of Fairmont Properties’ work that Mr. Emery was approached to build new homes. Initially the reply was, "We don't build for the public, we build for ourselves."

It became apparent, however, that Fairmont’s sensitivity to period correct architecture and craftsmanship was in high demand, resulting in a move into custom design/build. Extensive experience in the senior development industry as well as navigating the intricacies of "in-fill development" has led to a gain of significant "know-how". "Our background of converting mansions to luxury homes and apartments has required numerous steps, including issues concerning the municipal authority, re-zoning and interfacing with the Committee of Adjustments. Our experience in the industry and our ability to sort out serious problems are among our best-known strengths.

Please look through the Gallery section of this website for a few of the beautiful homes we have had the privilege of building. Then, review the Awards page, to see how we stack up as builders and restoration experts within the industry.

“You have my personal guarantee, that all construction of your new heritage home or historical restoration, will be only the best. That's the way we work, at Fairmont Properties.”
