About Us

Together More

Tomo is a Vancouver-based real estate company. We build at the intersection of “hardwhere” and “softwhere,” where physical space and intangible
activities meet. As developers, operators, and researchers, we believe in the power of place to enable people to do amazing things. Our research-driven approach
challenges us to engage with complex urban issues. Since 2005, we’ve cultivated award-winning places like Schoolhouse in Vancouver and River Market in New
Westminster.
