A Century of real estate development experience in one team
The company was founded in 1975 by William K. Butler on the fundamentals of creating and maintaining strong relationships with tenants, and financially responsible development; these objectives continue to be paramount within the organization today. The senior management of Springwood boasts over 80 years of real estate development experience, and is supported by a veteran team of property managers, accountants, and property administrators. Springwood excels at taking land parcels through the entire development process from acquisition of land, planning and development issues, leasing, finance and construction, and ultimately first-class property management of our properties in-house.
Since 1995, Springwood has focused on large format retail development and the past ten years has seen our attention focused on Cornerstone projects, such as 30-90 acre Wal-Mart anchored developments in western Canada’s growing secondary markets. We have completed upwards of 11 Cornerstone projects and still maintain ownership in all but three of them, focusing on high-quality management.

Over 200 businesses, including national, regional and local companies lease space in Springwood properties.
Springwood manages 100% of its properties internally to ensure the highest level of management and tenant relations. This enables us to respond to tenant issues in the quickest possible time frame, keep costs under control, and allows direct feedback from our valued clients – the tenant.
