Sam Mizrahi is the President and founder of Mizrahi Developments, a private Canadian real estate development company that specializes in catering to the high-end, luxury marketplace and that values attention to detail, craftsmanship and architectural distinction.

In addition to leading Mizrahi Developments, Sam serves as President and founder of Northern Citadel Bancorp, a private company registered with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) as a Mortgage Investment Trust and Administrator (MIT).

Sam Mizrahi has been an entrepreneur in various ventures since the age of 16 and has over twenty years of experience in pinpointing business opportunities and monetizing them. As a young man, Sam studied urban planning and sought lucrative land investment opportunities in the Richmond Hill and Oak Ridges areas of the GTA - work that prepared him for his later development career.

In 1992, Sam founded Dove Cleaners. He successfully grew the company, turning it into the largest luxury dry cleaning business in Canada with more than 100 retail operations and an advanced processing plant. By 2005, Dove Cleaners had garnered a number of industry awards and gone public.

In 2008, Sam founded Mizrahi Developments. Initially, Mizrahi Developments focused on the development of high-end, custom-built homes in Forest Hill and other valuable neighborhoods of the GTA. Following greater demand for detailed, custom-crafted and designed condominiums, similar in finish and quality construction techniques found in single-dwelling residences, the company expanded into creating mid-rise, mixed-use boutique buildings as well as high-rise developments.

Sam plays a key role in acquiring new properties, building the entrepreneurial and imaginative vision for their development as well as guiding the overall management of the firm.

Mizrahi Developments’ mid-rise boutique developments at 133 Hazelton and 181 Davenport redefined what it means to build luxury condos in Toronto.

In 2014, Mizrahi Developments announced its development of The One, a mixed-used high-rise located at the southwest corner of Yonge Street and Bloor Street, one of the most sought-after real estate locations in Canada. Designed by London architectural firm, Foster + Partners, The One will be the tallest residential tower in Canada at 80 storeys and 304 meters and will feature an exoskeleton design with structural supports on the exterior, allowing for maximum light and interiors free of supporting pillars.
