Steve Gupta on top of one of his projects overlooking the CN Tower - "I am now on top of the world," he's obviously thinking.
Toronto: Canada's The Gupta Group , amongst top real estate developers in the country, have announced building of two of the tallest condominium towers in the city of Vaughan, 51 and 53-storeys each north of Toronto, which will house approximately 1,140 units and include 120,000 sq ft. of retail space.
“We are well aware of the incredible potential of this region (of Vaughan) as our hotel development company, The Easton’s Group of Hotels, owns three successful hotels in Vaughan,” says Steve Gupta, Chairman and CEO of The Gupta Group and President and CEO of the Easton’s Group of Hotels. This project will proudly “contribute to the already phenomenal growth of this area.”
Under Gupta’s stewardship, The Easton’s Group and the Gupta Group are now touching the sky as their condominium and hotel buildings are doing.
There’s no limit to Gupta’s success and growth. He launched the Gupta Group for condominium developments only in 2012. Since then he has launched a dozen multimillion dollar projects, like the successful King Blue (later the entire project was scooped by a Chinese company), followed by Dundas Square Gardens, The Rosedale on Bloor, and Yong Park Plaza, a mixed-use, four star hotel and office building, all in Toronto.
And Gupta’s Easton Group of Hotels has grown into a major force in the hospitality and service industry in Ontario. They now own and manage flagship hotel properties which include brands as the Hilton, Marriott and Holiday Inn, in various Canadian cities.
If you talk to Gupta, he would unhesitatingly concede how when he decided to migrate to Canada from his hometown of Patiala (Punjab) in 1970 (he was 21 years old then), he had barely $108 in his pocket. Now he boasts of having entered the billionaires’ exclusive league, all result of hard work, discipline and determination to succeed.
