QUALITY YOU CAN TRUST...
AREE Developments is a local, boutique development firm in Vancouver specializing in heritage-conversion and multi-family residential homes. For almost two decades now, AREE has been delivering Quality, Class, and Comfort to discerning families in this community, from the East to the West side.
“Building every home like it’s our own” has been our mantra since the very beginning. Strong integrity, supreme quality, and understanding the client's needs are our strengths at AREE Developments.
Gary Lee, the company’s principal, is a professional civil engineer who has been involved in the construction industry for 30 years, and has always been thoroughly involved in the building process from architectural design to construction.
Every project is a unique brainchild where the team starts from the end-buyers’ perspective to design and build dream homes with attention to every detail. Every project is a masterpiece that we take pride in. We are here to build trust that will last.
In 2004, Gary founded AREE Developments, with a goal to deliver “timeless pieces”: high-quality yet affordable townhomes for discerning families.
Gary spent the first 15 years of his career in various fields of civil engineering from design and construction supervision at Ministry of Transportation and Highways of B.C., to project and construction management at Maunsell Consultants Asia, the largest global engineering consultancy practice in infrastructure. Building residential homes was at first a personal hobby, when Gary built his first house in 1994. After completing multiple projects he eventually realized this was where his passion and specialty lies.
Michael brought to the company over 15 years of experience in construction supervision and project management. Prior to joining AREE Developments, Michael spent eight years in Delcan corporation Canada, an internationally recognized engineering consulting firm.
