GK York's Vision
GK York's vision and business strength have allowed,
over the recent years, their focus on less desirable
properties, to successfully refurbish and bring a
revitalized use and attractive streetscape pleasing to the eye of the community. The company enjoys renovating heritage buildings to maintain their once-grand appearance, mixing old and new elements together. GK York is a proud supporter of downtown Brantford and is excited about the universities in the downtown area. Launched in 2005, development of the Harmony Square Centre in the heart of downtown Brantford was awarded to GK York Management services, and completed in 2007.
