Rohit Group’s Father/Son Duo Named to Edmonton Journal’s Power 30

Edmonton, AB – Radhe & Rohit Gupta, the dynamic father/son duo at the helm of Rohit Group of Companies have been recognized by the Edmonton Journal as one of the City of Edmonton’s Top 30 most powerful people in 2014.

We are thrilled to announce that Rohit Group of Companies Founder & CEO Radhe Gupta along with his son Rohit Gupta, current President of Rohit Group of Companies, were named by the Edmonton Journal to their Power 30; a list of the most powerful people in the City of Edmonton  for 2014.

The City of Edmonton is very much an entrepreneurial town.  This city is filled with a large number of highly influential, brilliant, creative, and successful developers, visionaries, educators, and risk takers. In a city of almost a million, the task of selecting only 30 powerful people by the Edmonton Journal proved to be a difficult task. However, both Radhe and Rohit Gupta inherently exhibit characteristics determined by the Edmonton Journal columnists as powerful qualities, making them an obvious candidate for the Power 30.

Radhe Gupta came from a humble Indian family and first started working as an engineer in the Libyan oilfields. Knowing that the oilfield life wasn’t his lifelong dream, he set out to build his very first home in the early 1980’s in Edmonton. With an entrepreneurial spirit, a strong work ethic and the determination to succeed Radhe, along with his wife Krishna, steadily started to grow their real estate business. Radhe’s core values of quality, innovation and perseverance became the foundation for Rohit Group of Companies which has grown from building homes into a diversified organization with complimentary interests in residential and  land development, commercial assets and real estate lending.

While growing the business Radhe quickly realized the need to develop strong relationships with his partners and members from the community, an important business lesson that Radhe has passed down to his son Rohit. Today the organization focuses on serving all of its stakeholders – customers, employees, suppliers and financial partners. It is that kind of attitude that has brought Edmonton-based Rohit Group of Companies so much success over the past 25 years.

This year, Radhe also won one of the most prestigious awards for entrepreneurs, the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Real Estate and Construction, reaffirming his selection as part of the Power 30.

Gupta’s son Rohit has more than lived up to his role as the company’s namesake.  Working in every aspect of the business for more than a decade, Rohit learned on the frontlines everything from construction to strategic financing.  Rohit’s strengths are in creating new opportunities and identifying unintended consequences.  He also has a powerful and ongoing commitment to give back to the community, to make the organization an institution that is respected for the way it conducts business, a leader in real estate, and a contributor to the world beyond the organization itself.

“This honor is completely unexpected,” said Rohit, “a lot of other names come to mind.  It’s humbling to be among such incredible people in helping our great city reach its potential.”

Rohit Group of Companies is thrilled to announce that our Founder & CEO, Radhe Gupta, was awarded Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Real Estate and Construction category in the Prairies Region.

Rohit Group Celebrates Little Warriors Grand Opening of the Be Brave Ranch

September 27, 2014 marked a historic day as the Little Warriors’ Be Brave Ranch celebrated its grand opening after years of dreaming, planning and perseverance.  The Be Brave Ranch, located in Strathcona County, Alberta is the first long-term treatment facility in Canada for children and families who have experienced sexual abuse.

As a project made possible by the donations and volunteer time by everyday Albertans who believed in the project and the cause it stood for, Rohit Group of Companies was honoured to have played a small role in making the ranch a reality.  In a push to get the ranch ready to accept the children for treatment in the fall, over 50 Rohit staff came and erected a 20’X20’ playhouse, revitalized the playground, repainted the existing skating rink, and help complete the property landscaping.

“Rohit Group is a truly philanthropic organization but this was so much more,” says Amy Power, Marketing Manager for Rohit Group. “Our staff and our amazing vendor partners donated time and materials in order to make our playhouse a reality.  We’ve built many houses over the years but this one is particularly special – it stands for a place where kids who have endured many hardships can just be kids again.”

Tawa Landing Grand Opening Shows Positive Impact of First Place Program

Tawa Landing Grand Opening Shows Positive Impact of First Place Program

Edmonton, AB – Despite the brisk weather on May 15, 2014, the atmosphere was very warm as friendly faces met their future neighbours for the first time at Rohit Communities’ Tawa Landing Grand Opening. The First Place Program community saw more than fifty attendees including city councillors and representatives, customers and Rohit team members. Two furnished show homes were on display as future home owners were given the opportunity to see the floor plans they had purchased come to life.

Rohit Communities was honoured to have Councillors Ed Gibbons and Amarjeet Sohi join city representatives in participating in this community event. The Councillors cut the ribbon in front of a crowd of homeowners and Rohit employees during the event.

Rohit Communities and Landmark Group were the selected builders in the First Place Program partnership with the City of Edmonton. It is a unique program designed to support first time buyers in Alberta by transforming unused school sites into new homes with the benefit of revitalizing mature neighbourhoods. This program not only helps people get into their first homes, but also benefits the overall community by refreshing existing neighbourhoods by adding young families, new housing types, and utilizing under used infrastructure. The program also contributes to the city’s objective of having twenty five percent of new housing developments in mature neighbourhoods.

Councillor Ed Gibbons acknowledges the impact of the First Place Program in a small speech before the ribbon cutting ceremony. “The fact is that Edmonton is growing at a tremendous pace, and if we don’t talk about it and act on it, we’re not doing our jobs […] Not everybody can afford to go into high-rises going up, so how do we actually come to the method of dealing with the housing issue? This is one fantastic method.”

It was particularly exciting for families to see the blossoming neighbourhood as the project sold out well before show homes were ready. Many of the Tawa Landing Families had made their decisions based solely on floor plans and the desirable location that offered public services and amenities with nearby proximity to school and work.

One of the homebuyers, Kathryn, shares what the First Place Program has done for her. “I have a sense of independence and accomplishment from owning my first home! It feels like my daughter and I have really made it – that we are able to get our own house – it is a big sense of accomplishment for me.”

Rohit Communities is currently selling into their next First Place Program development called Casselman Landing in North East Edmonton with townhomes starting from the $240’s while Landmark Group is underway with selling their Caernarvon Keep neighbourhood.

Rohit Group Supports Mental Health with Generous Donation to Glenrose Foundation

Rohit Group Supports Mental Health with Generous Donation to Glenrose Foundation

Edmonton, AB – Rohit Group of Companies takes great pride in their support of numerous charities in Canada, and their most recent $10,000 donation to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit at the Glenrose Foundation here in Edmonton is no less worthy of celebration. This gift will go to supporting the creation of a family meeting room, and will also support the hospital’s Artist-in-Residence program through an annual $5,000 donation.

The Artist-in-Residence program is a very exciting and beneficial program, in that an artist works alongside patients to create art that is later featured as a permanent addition to the unit. This program actively engages the young patients in artistic design, encourages creative expression, and provides an emotional outlet through painting and collage-making.

Rohit Group of Companies’ generous donation will also provide the unit with a new Family Meeting Room. Currently, the furniture in the dated room is held together with duct tape, but with Rohit’s donation, the Glenrose Foundation will be able to paint and decorate the room, and purchase new furniture so that the youth in the unit can have a comfortable room to meet with their loved ones, relatives, and care providers.

The program in which patients experience such benefits as relief from anxiety, distance from pain, respite from boredom, and extended contact with hospital staff is one that Rohit is very honoured to support.

“Issues regarding mental health is something that is near and dear to my heart,” Says Krishna Gupta, VP of Rohit Charities. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with the Glenrose Foundation, and I strongly believe that by working together we can reverse the stigma associated with mental illness.  As a community we should all strive to create a positive environment for those affected by mental health challenges.”

Edmonton Home Builder Rohit Communities Introduces New Safety Program

Edmonton Home Builder Rohit Communities Introduces New Safety Program

Edmonton, AB – Rohit Communities is on a mission to improve safety on new home construction sites among their employees and trade partners. Taking a refreshing new approach, Rohit has provided incentive to catching people working safe. The ‘Caught Working Safe!’ program is meant to encourage safe work procedures and practices at every stage of construction, this innovative program allows workers and organizations that constantly exercise safety the opportunity to benefit from it.

The ‘Caught Working Safe!’ program operates on a very simple concept – get caught working safe, and have the opportunity to be sent to Las Vegas by Rohit Communities. Every time a worker is caught working safe by a site supervisor or safety officer, they are given a numbered and tracked “Caught Working Safe” sticker to place on their hardhat. When four stickers are collected, the worker is entered in a draw for the free flights and accommodations for their Las Vegas trip. With so many opportunities to be noticed, safe workers will find themselves easily getting recognition from others in the field.

Rohit Communities has seen an increase in safe work practices since the program first launched 3 months ago and recognition across the industry has developed, with other home builders showing an interest in getting on board. “The reception of the program has been incredible,” explained Sander Van Ingen, Safety Officer for Rohit Communities, “Workers   on site have really bought into the program, from Rohit Site Superintendents who are handing out the stickers, to our trade partners and their employees.”

The free trip will be awarded twice a year via an exciting live draw, where both the top 5 trade partners and individual employees that practiced safe work will also be recognized.  The first Las Vegas trip was awarded last Friday, March 28th, 2014 to Daniel Derewlanka, an electrician from Outland Electric. Please join us in congratulating a key trade partner on the recognition and the win.

Cambrian Crossing Area Structure Plan Approved by Council

Cambrian Crossing Area Structure Plan Approved by Council

March 28, 2014 – Rohit Land Development is thrilled to announce that on March 25th the revised Area Structure Plan (ASP) for the up and coming Cambrian neighbourhood in Sherwood Park, Alberta was unanimously approved by all the voting Strathcona County Council members. Thank you to the Strathcona County council members and administration who worked with Rohit Land Development to support this plan coming to fruition and to the Strathcona County residents we consulted to ensure their needs and desires were represented in the changes.

The previous ASP was adjusted to increase the residential capacity of Cambrian, located in the urban service area just north of Yellowhead Trail on Clover Bar Road, providing a solution to the decreasing supply of developable land in Sherwood Park – the third best place to live in Canada according to Money Sense Magazine. This development will ensure a continued lot supply in Sherwood Park, allowing existing residents the opportunity to relocate within their community and also provides affordable options for first time buyers to stay within the community they grew up in and love.

The ASP also focuses on the unique location of Cambrian by providing residents the luxury of benefitting from the highest percentage of neighbourhood open space in Sherwood Park including access to the Old Man Creek park and trail system that will run through the community. Adding a school site to the ASP along with being located only minutes away from Emerald Hills Commercial Centre and the new Strathcona Community Hospital, will have Cambrian residents close to services and amenities. In addition to those offsite amenities, the Cambrian plan incorporates significant opportunity for walkable neighbourhood commercial services.

This complete community will feature a broad mix of housing ranging from ravine estate homes to entry level affordable housing and all products in between. Russell Dauk, VP of Land Development and Commercial for Rohit Group of Companies states that “Rohit envisions a community that will appeal to a wide array of residents as we have included all aspects of the housing market in one community. From new home buyers to retirees, we will have something for everyone in a master-planned community.” This will all lead to a population of over 11,000 people in this diverse neighbourhood. The community will be self-sustainable with a variety of housing, commercial, business employment, parks, schools, and mixed use commercial areas that will create a balance of live, work, and play.

Russell further acknowledges the importance of this approval and the anticipation that has come with it. “This revised Cambrian Area Structure Plan is one of the most detailed plans I have worked on over my 20 plus years in the industry. I am extremely proud of the design that evolved and with this approval; Cambrian is one step closer to coming alive, as we work towards our goal of servicing the first stage in 2015.”
