The Developer

Ken Mariash's life long passion for land development began 40 years ago in Edmonton. Over this time, he has been associated with the completion or purchase and sale of more that 15 million square feet of commercial and industrial space and more than 10,000 residential/condominium units in Canada and the United States. Among these were major commercial and industrial projects in Edmonton including the Norwester Industrial area where he was involved as a developer and builder.

The potential of the Aurum property coupled with the growth in the Edmonton market driven by the unprecedented capital development related to the oil sands, makes Aurum Energy Park one of the most attractive development opportunities among the many available to Mariash.
