A family owned and operated construction, property management and land development company, Rice Development Corp. traces its roots back to 1918 when Will Rice, a young carpenter from Newfoundland moved to Toronto. After the Second World War, Will’s son, Maxwell Rice, formed Rice Construction with two of his brothers. They began building and renovating homes in the Toronto, Ontario area.
Rice Development Corp., is owned by Maxwell's sons Rod and Dave who are involved in every aspect of the business. They each spent many years working with and learning from their father who passed away in 2006.
Working in property development for over 50 years gives us the unique distinction of long-standing experience, hard-earned credibility, and glowing recommendations. Our diversity as builders in residential, commercial and industrial properties means we are knowledgeable in a variety of departments. By growing and changing over the years, and taking on new challenges, we have developed a skill set and quality control that we are proud of.
We take development projects from the very initial stages of the planning process right through design, approval, construction and management. We are hands on in our approach, with the third generation of the Rice family now actively involved in the business.
