The Magellen 20/20 corporate vision focuses squarely on relationships with stakeholders, including realtors, the city, neighbours, the development community and, above all, the homeowner. Henry and his team approach every relationship with integrity and a commitment to deliver what’s promised. This approach has resulted in strong partnerships with the development community and repeat business with Magellen 20/20 residents and investors.
Residential buildings are essentially designed from the inside out. Too often the exterior architecture is sacrificed for expediency. In my experience, Henry constantly challenged us to pursue architecture in parallel with the development of the floor layouts, which is something that most developers either don’t feel is necessary or are too lazy to consider.
“Happy customers or unhappy customers are created by the developer,” says Henry. Over the past decade, the Magellen 20/20 team has had many customers. This is because of their driving principle to optimize the value of each home by creating intelligent layouts that make every square foot work harder. What does this mean to you, the buyer? More usable space. And less wasted space.
Efficiency is a detailed and painstaking process. At Magellen 20/20, we like to say that we design our buildings from the inside out. That means we think about each suite as if we ourselves were going to cook in the kitchen, entertain in the living room and sleep in the bedrooms.
We reconsider traditional layouts and conventional amenities, and then come up with innovative solutions that give your home more usable and flexible space, at a very competitive cost.
That is the beauty of efficiency. It gives you homes that flow and feel larger than you’d expect – at a smaller price.
The Magellen 20/20 team knows that most people will get excited about the affordability of our homes, and might not even notice the efficiency of their homes until they move in. Gradually, when homeowners spend time in Magellen 20/20 space, they will further appreciate their living space, and this is how happy customers are created.
Magellen 20/20 has crafted one of the most competent and dynamic teams in the business - from in-house talent and external partners who operate with the same level of skill and integrity as Magellen people. With a track record of successful high-rise residential building, a meticulous eye for detail and a breadth of experience from some of the most prestigious projects in Canada, they ensure every Magellen 20/20 home is of the highest quality.
