Anything but Ordinary

For over forty-five years, Intracorp has developed extraordinary homes—and we haven’t done it alone. Every member of the team has been integral to our success, helping build a reputation based on integrity, expertise and a solid financial foundation.

From intimate townhomes to iconic gateway towers to apartment residences, we take pride in adding value to not only the homes we build, but also the communities we build in, and work to bring unique opportunities to our homeowners, residents and partners.

A Brief History



Joe Houssian, together with a partner, start Intrawest. Initially focused on urban development, this is the beginning of 45+ years (and counting) of building extraordinary homes.



Leveraging their early success, Joe Houssian and a group of business partners purchase Blackcomb Mountain. At its peak, Intrawest employs more than 25,000 employees and earns in excess of $1.6 billion in annual revenues.



Intrawest expands to Seattle and delivers its first US high-rise condominium building, Arbor Place in Seattle, Washington. This is the first of more than 30 buildings developed in the Seattle area.



Intrawest develops its first of 8 rental offerings in the Seattle area, Park Highland in Bellevue, diversifying to meet market demand. This strategy will become an integral part of our business approach.



Intracorp is officially established as a privately owned real estate company operating in Canada and the Pacific Northwest, setting the stage to deliver more than 25,000 homes over the next 25 years.



Intracorp opens operations in Southern California, and launches their first condominium, “235 on Market,” in 2001. This is the first of 32 Southern California communities, positioning Intracorp as one the areas largest condominium developers.



Intracorp delivers its 10,000th home in North America.



Intracorp develops Chancellor House at the University of British Columbia. This is the start of Intracorp's dedication to the Westside of Vancouver, ultimately resulting in the company becoming the areas most prominent developer with 1,389 homes in 17 communities.



Intracorp delivers its first high-rise condominium community in San Francisco, “The Hayes,” with 111 homes. This is followed soon after by Arterra, with 269 homes, establishing Intracorp in San Francisco.



Joe Houssian (Intracorp), in partnership with two leading US private equity firms, acquires Taylor Morrison from UK parent Taylor Wimpey plc for $955 million. Taylor Morrison Housing Corporation (TMHC) goes public on NYSE in 2013. Canadian subsidiary, Monarch Homes, based in Toronto, is sold in 2014 to local interests. In 2017 TMHC sales were $3.9 billion. Intracorp’s ownership in Taylor Morrison Housing Corporation are sold through a public market stock placement in 2018.



Intracorp partners with MOD Developments and Tricon Capital to bring Massey Tower to Toronto. With 60 stories of concrete construction, Massey Tower seamlessly integrates into the 1905 Heritage Bank of Commerce and the famous Massey Hall on Toronto’s Yonge and Queen Street.



With a move towards urban, transit-oriented development, Intracorp delivers MC², located at the Southern Gateway to Vancouver. This community is Intracorp's largest community delivered to date; 556 homes over two prominent towers and featuring Douglas Coupland's Golden Tree as the community's focal point.



OneIntracorp is created. Wholly-owned by the Vancouver-based Houssian family, all corporate operations across North America are centralized to work together under one common business goal. With more than 25,000 homes delivered over 176 communities and operating over 4 regions, Intracorp is perfectly positioned to continue delivering extraordinary homes in extraordinary locations.
