In 1983, Kris and Cheryl Mailman took over Mailman Construction from Kris' father, with one presold house that year in Campbell River, BC. They continued to build single family homes and diversify into duplexes and developing subdivisions. They also build their first rental apartment building.
In 1992, Mailman Construction is renamed Seymour Pacific Developments after the beautiful Seymour Narrows, north of Campbell River. Kris launches an asset management company called Broadstreet Properties that would manage the buildings Seymour Pacific was building. They continue to expand and grow throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
After expanding into 12 cities, Kris Mailman sells the entire 2000+ unit portfolio to start the companies on a new path. In 2006, Kris re-launches Broadstreet Properties with a new business model and Seymour Pacific builds its first property in their new portfolio, River Meadows Estates in Winnpeg, MB.
Over the next four years, the companies expand over Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, building regional offices and accumulating a portfolio of over 1,700 units.
By 2013 the portfolio exceeds an impressive 4,000 units and the companies begin to grow at an unprecedented speed. In 2014, they reach over 5,000 units and open their beautiful West Coast-inspired home office, seen here.
In 2015, Seymour Pacific continues to expand into new cities, including Cold Lake, AB and Beaumont, AB.
With over 6000 units in operation, Broadstreet Properties hits a new milestone with over $1 billion in asset value with over 7 million square feet in property space.
The next six years sees massive expansion all over Canada, including British Columbia.
In early 2020, the two companies reach their largest milestone yet. Seymour Pacific builds 1600 units in one year and Broadstreet reaches 10,000 units in operation.
Seymour Pacific begins work on their first-ever concrete building in Campbell River with the 12-storey Crestview Tower at Seymour Village boasting the best ocean and mountain views in Campbell River. The business expends to West Kelowna, Port Alberni, Cranbrook, Brandon, and continues to thrive across Western Canada. A new regional office fosters growth in Saskatoon.
Kris D. Mailman represents the next generation of leadership, being promoted to Chief Executive Officer of Seymour Pacific and Broadstreet Properties after seven years as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer and Executive VP.
We develop and build over 1,500 units a year by efficiently leveraging effective teamwork and industry expertise. Found in 30+ cities across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba our projects include multi-family apartments, townhomes, and commercial space.
With over 35 years of experience in development and construction, paired with our unparalleled speed and efficiency, we have a number of advantages that separates us from the rest.
