LIFE SIMPLY SEEMS RICHER AND DEEPER
IN A BORDEAUX COMMUNITY
Founded in 2001 by partners Birol Fisekci, William Pringle & Gerald Hennig, Bordeaux Developments was indeed named after the famous historical city of France. The founders shared a common love for fine wine and a penchant for placemaking. Bordeaux has been described as a "wonderous place of grace and beauty with quirky surprises around every corner". Embedded with a rich soulful passion for food, wine, and art, history rests easily alongside the present in Bordeaux, along with the grand, the intimate, the glamour, and the humble. Like the food and the wine, life simply seems richer and deeper in Bordeaux. We want you to have the same feelings when you fall in love with our projects.
We are passionately committed to the process of developing inclusive, sustainable communities of increasing value that appreciate the past, enrich the present, and preserve the future by harmonizing economic, social, and environmental interests and advancing the emotional, physical and financial well-being of all stakeholders.
We believe in a more collaborative and respectful form of development as we approach the ‘business’ of development.
We have enjoyed building our portfolio of projects over the years that encompass small boutique land projects, a multi-family condo project, a unique community in nearby Okotoks, and an award-winning development in the village of ‘Harmony’ in Rocky View County.
Bordeaux manages, partners, or acquires interests in land development and housing projects. We meet the needs and goals of our clients and landowner partners through our professional and responsive management team. Bordeaux is driven to identify and understand your objectives, add value, lower risk, and sell your property at the highest value.
