Investment + Development

Building better means tapping into the soul of a community. It means listening to the needs and wants of those who use and live in our spaces. People and places are everything to us. Doing things together is the only way forward.


The homes and buildings we create don’t follow a pattern or the crowd. They positively affect people — that’s the secret to inspiring communities and lives.


We connect concepts with capital by unearthing financing solutions for investment opportunities.


2607 Nanaimo Street, Vancouver

Stretching across a full city block, Woodland Block is New York-inspired for an authentic East Van neighbourhood at Nanaimo and 10th. Seventy-two townhomes and flats are designed for real life, with mid-century modern influences, spaces for an assortment of retailers, and resident amenities that bring people together.


4472 Hastings Street, Burnaby

At the crossroads of four distinct Burnaby neighbourhoods, 4472 Hastings comes to life in partnership with Cantera Group. In a woodframe shape sculpted to make the most of space, light, and community, 38 homes and a variety of ground-level retailers will influence the urban fabric at Willingdon and Hastings.


2886 Commercial Street, Vancouver

In a collaboration with Headwater Projects, 44 purpose-built rental apartments at Commercial and 16th express their individuality in a building with unique geometric patterns. Well-crafted homes feature amenities that encourage ease and togetherness, while an eclectic mix of retail spaces contributes to the colourful community spirit.


1967 Napier Street, Vancouver

Seven three-bedroom character-style homes will pay homage to Grandview-Woodland’s one-of-a-kind soul at the corner of Napier Street and Semlin Drive. Five new, history-inspired infill homes will join a heritage home built in 1919, carefully restored into a duplex. Yesterday’s design values blend with today’s contemporary styles to create something entirely unique for East Van.

“We foster strong partnerships with industry leaders who are not afraid to think differently.”

Who We Are

First Track started on the premise that we would do things differently — walk the real estate paths least taken. Our two partners, Sasha Faris and Matt Ilich, are determined to build things that matter, to make a positive imprint on communities, and to collaborate with people who want the same. At the end of the day, we are locals who want to see our city progress in better and inspiring ways, together.
