With AcreageWay, Now You Can Invest In The Soaring Commercial Real Estate Market With As Little As $1,000

Rising prices have locked many Canadians out of the real estate market — and the wealth gains that come with ownership.

“For too long, real estate has been behind closed doors and not accessible to everyone,” says Joe Accardi, Partner & CEO of Forge & Foster. “We want to bring real estate to all Canadians. And so does AcreageWay. Their new investment portal is something that we’re really excited about.”

What is AcreageWay?

AcreageWay is a new Ontario-based commercial real estate investment startup. It lets investors like you enter the commercial real estate market with as little as $1,000 and earn income from your investment.

“Commercial real estate requires a huge amount of upfront cash to gain entry, and that ranges from $500,000 to $1 million-plus, so a common investor who doesn’t have that much cash won’t be able to enter these opportunities,” AcreageWay president Aditya Koparde told the Globe and Mail. “Where we come into the picture is we’re fractionalizing these opportunities so they can invest.”

“For too long, real estate has been behind closed doors and not accessible to everyone.”

Forge & Foster Brings an Exciting Development to Canada’s Prettiest Town

Forge & Foster Brings an Exciting Development to Canada’s Prettiest Town

April 22, 2021

Paris, ON – Forge & Foster Investment Management

Hamilton-based Forge & Foster Investment Management is launching an exciting new development in “Canada’s prettiest town,” The Walker Press located in Paris, Ontario.

With an eye for identifying properties with distinct character and a unique history, Forge & Foster acquired the exquisite Walker Press building in 2020.

The Walker Press will be restored into a multi-use, commercial facility that will richly contribute to the growing community of culinary and craft-goods experiences in experience in Paris.

Located on 3 Yeo Street, with the oldest portion of the structure – the Maxwell wing – built in 1872, The Walker Press (est. 1910) moved into the Penman Wing in 1915.

Expanding into the Maxwell wing in 1920, connecting the two buildings in the process, they operated for over 60 years, printing everything from gift coupons to royal portraits.

With its proximity to the historic downtown district of Paris, surrounded by thriving densification projects, and rooted in a destination that is only a short drive from the urban centres of Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge, The Walker Press is the perfect location for multiple emerging businesses ranging from culinary and retail, to office and light-industrial.

“Paris is a beautifully historic town and an incredible destination, we are thrilled to play a role in reviving this property and writing its next chapter,”

said Ben Ames, Partner and CIO.

“The Walker Press will be an idyllic and innovative setting for a new generation of Paris-based businesses. A perfect setting for emerging industries and employment opportunities in ‘Canada’s prettiest town,’”

said Joe Accardi, Partner and CEO.

Forge & Foster greatly acknowledges and thanks The Paris Museum & Historical Society for all their support in understanding the background of The Walker Press.
