Real estate developer TAS has a new Chief Development Officer on board, announcing on Thursday that former Executive VP of Development at Allied Properties REIT Hugh Clark has taken on the role.

“We are thrilled to have Hugh join us as we continue to build TAS as Canada’s foremost developer of real estate that drives change and creates social and environmental impact," said TAS President and CEO Mazyar Mortazavi. "Hugh’s depth of experience in successfully delivering some of Canada’s most complex and unique projects, coupled with his deep values alignment, sets the foundation for a great partnership."

Having spent more than a decade at Allied, Clark oversaw the construction of a number of notable developments across Toronto, including The Well. Prior to that, he spent four years as a Project Architect for the Toronto-based Baird Sampson Neuert Architects, and is a graduate of the University of Toronto and Harvard University.

“I am excited to be joining TAS and an incredible team that is passionate about developing resilient and sustainable projects that are good for the residents, the local communities and for our planet,” Clark said. “That’s a mission I am proud to be a part of.”

TAS has several major ongoing projects in Toronto, including a six-building development at 2 Tecumseth Street, a rental tower at 3730 Kingston Road in Scarborough, and an intriguing 20-storey adaptive reuse project on the site of the Walmer Road Baptist Church.
