Our Process

Why Did We Start Urban Lanes?

We wanted a simple way to build Laneway Suites for rental purposes in Toronto residential backyards.

Coming from the perspective of a real estate investor, we were looking for a company who really understood our needs, with the goals of maximizing cash flows and return on investment.

We couldn’t find one. So we created it.
