leith moore Former Sorbara Group VP Leith Moore will be heading up Fieldgate Homes‘ foray into urban infill development.

While the move hasn’t been officially announced, sources have confirmed that Moore will become Fieldgate’s Vice President, Urban Infill.

Fieldgate has typically been most active in the single-family home market in the GTA with developments in Oakville, Brampton, Richmond Hill and other suburbs. Recently, the developer has signaled a greater interest in moving into the urban condo market with the 45-unit mid-rise 90 Niagara, which is currently in pre-construction. Fieldgate’s first downtown development was Corktown Mews, a long sold out collection of townhomes.

The Vaughan-based Sorbara Group circulated a press release earlier this month announcing Moore’s departure after 35 years with the company. Sorbara’s Greg Tanzola, the Lead on High-Rise Construction, is taking over the Development Group in the interim.

During his time at Sorbara, Moore chaired the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and was President of the Ontario Home Builders Association (OHBA). He also held a position as an adjunct professor at the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Waterloo.

Considering Moore’s experience at Sorbara developing projects like 210 Simcoe and 32 Camden, he should be able to hit the ground running at Fieldgate.
