First and foremost: a human approach
We believe that the process of developing and maintaining commercial properties should include a decidedly human element. It’s all too easy to boil down our business to the notion of companies leasing spaces to other companies and to forget that real, everyday people are actually the ones who negotiate deals and work in the spaces we provide.
We declare that we will not lose sight of the imperative to serve people first and foremost. Our tagline – “more than just space” – is our commitment to do more than meet the needs of the businesses that call our properties home (although we never lose sight of this imperative). It is also a promise to appreciate the needs of the people who work for the companies we serve. Occasionally it means structuring leasing arrangements to suit the needs of our tenants, even when their requirements extend beyond our normal limits. Always it means going out of our way to provide exceptional service as and when (and occasionally before!) our tenants and their employees request it.
Of course we offer exceptional properties that boast robust infrastructure, sophisticated security, fantastic finishes and wonderful amenities. But to us, these are merely part of the baseline standard that a tenant should expect from its landlord. What we also offer – what the KRP difference is all about – is a decidedly human approach to commercial leasing. An understanding that off-the-shelf commercial leasing solutions are seldom perfect, and that people matter above all. We’re more than just landlords to our tenants. We’re their partners.
Talk to us today to discover the KRP difference for yourself.
We created the KRP difference as a clear and deliberate opportunity to serve our tenants and their employees better than any commercial landlord in Ottawa can. Our people-first strategy is the product of careful thinking by our executive team, who collectively boast decades of experience in their respective fields. They form a group that leads by example and lives and breathes the notion that our work should be performed on a human scale as well as a corporate one.

A one-window approach to property management
KRP Properties is unlike any landlord in Ottawa. We own and build the properties we manage, which means we take an entirely different approach to asset oversight. Many owners will subcontract out day-to-day administration of their facilities to one company, and keep another on retainer to perform construction operations and maintenance work as and when it is required.
That’s fine for some, but we aim higher. By offering leasing, construction, development and property-management services in house and integrating these departments, we can quickly respond to any request or challenge. There’s no red tape or unnecessary bureaucracy in our offices. When a tenant approaches us with a request for a new space – or requires a needs assessment – our team acts quickly. We interview closely to dive deep into the issues that matter to our tenants and their workers, and design and develop solutions that address our tenants’ needs and enhance the long-term value of our physical assets. What’s more, we do so in days rather than weeks or months. That’s the value of our one-window approach to property management.
KRP Properties is also one of a very few remaining privately held real estate ventures in Canada. As such, we tend to be nimbler and more accommodating than most other landlords. Our aim is to do everything we can to attract and retain tenants so that they, in turn, can do their utmost to attract and retain the best talent.
That’s what we mean when we say we offer more than just space. Contact us today to learn more.
A community of like-minded interests
“What’s the big deal about Kanata North, anyway? I can grow my business anywhere in Ottawa.”
We hear that question all the time from prospective tenants. It’s a valid concern. People often perceive Kanata as being out of the way, or hard to get into – and out of – during rush hours. The reality is far different, however. Kanata North is a premiere destination for technology companies and their employees, and is as accessible as any part of the city.
More than this, Kanata North is an established hub for Ottawa’s high-tech community. It’s an evolving ecosystem that hosts some of the most important players in the technology world. Our neighbourhood is home to industry-leading companies that employ thousands of people worldwide, as well as small start-ups that have their eyes on similar growth results.
Kanata North is also a community of like-minded people. This is where great talent works, lives and plays. It’s the place where the professionals and businesses that support our technology community have set up shop with the particular view of serving this community. And it’s a destination where workers from all industries gather to network on Tech Tuesdays, attend conferences at the Brookstreet Hotel, or shoot a quick nine with clients on the Marshes golf course.
The parks and businesses of KRP Properties are where most of the action happens in Kanata North. Visit us today to see for yourself how accessible we are, and plan to attend one of our community events. You’ll see why our neighbourhood is so much greater than the sum of its parts.
