 Director

Peter has a passion for development and was approached by a developer who wanted to build a seniors complex in Owen Sound. When that person was unable to do so  Peter and Partners decided to proceed with the project themselves knowing the demand in a growing community.  Peter and Partners knew how a development like this would serve the best interest of the community and seniors living here or that are thinking of moving to Owen Sound. With the help of Grey Wave Advisory Peter and his Partners created Owen Sound Gardens 

Peter moved to Owen Sound in 1973 and began his entrepreneurial career operating a business supplying aluminum windows, doors and siding in the local area. Peter purchased his first commercial property shortly after in order to facilitate the opening of a Four Seasons Sunroom franchise, occupying half of the space with the business and leasing out the remainder. Peter created ANDPET Realty in 1976  and has since successfully undertaken a number of large development projects including the former PPG glass plant, which entailed 5.5 million in renovations. Peter with partners  have recently purchased the former Tenneco building and are currently renovating that and will be leasing out 300,000 s.f. 

On the residential side Peter started East Court Residences 3 years ago which is  a 55 plus Seniors Community featuring rental Townhomes, Life Lease Semi - Detached units and a 126 Unit Seniors Complex - Owen Sound Gardens.
