Parallax Development Corporation is a real estate development company that has diverse assets throughout Canada and the United States. They pride themselves on their varied portfolio and their ability to get things done. They began as a company that was primarily concerned with the development of retail shopping plazas, but today they have become so much more. This developer was originally started by Owen Lawson over 30 years ago. He and his partners approached real estate development with a sense of frivolity and companionship that rubbed off on Owen’s two sons, Stafford and Nigel. Behind the boardrooms and contracts, Owen and his partners would go into the ground level of the construction sites and bet on things like how many rats they could catch. Although they always knew that they wanted to pursue the real estate industry with their father, Nigel and Stafford also knew that it was important to earn it on their own terms rather than being handed something because of their birth.
