MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwired - August 08, 2014) - To take an idea from concept to execution requires amongst many things solid partnerships and that was the focus as Burlington's newest condominium development took one more step towards completion.
For Adi Developments, the concept was to bring high-end, high-design living to Burlington, so two years ago they set out to bring The Mod'rn, a four-storey contemporary mid-rise condominium project on Guelph Line, to the area.
Adi Developments recently celebrated a milestone with its partners and investors as construction of the fourth and final floor of the building was completed. The 'topping off' brought together partners such as FDS Broker Services, Fortress Real Developments and Cameron Stephens Mortgage Capital to get a tour of the building and its 78 units, including an opportunity to go on the roof to take in the view.
"We would like to congratulate the Adi Developments team on reaching this milestone and we are proud to be partners in bringing this unique project to the residents of Burlington," said FDS Broker Services CEO Zafar Khawaja. "This is just the latest example of a project which our investors are happy to be earning 8 per cent consistently with our Syndicated Mortgage product."
Through the distribution of the Fortress Real Capital Syndicated Mortgage investment by FDS Broker Services, Adi was able to raise the funds necessary to move The Mod'rn project from conception to execution. Investors received outstanding annualized returns on their money and once again showed syndicated mortgages are a critical piece of the financial pie that enables developers, like Adi, to turn their ideas into bricks and mortar.
Adi's concept was well received, as the project was 95% sold out on opening weekend, allowing for zoning approvals and construction financing to be put in place and shovels were in the ground by the end of 2013. The first residents are expected to move in next spring.
"There's an appetite for great design, great location and great product overall in Burlington," said Tariq Adi. "Burlington residents deserve the same options as Toronto residents from a quality and design standpoint."
Along the way, The Mod'rn was lauded with Project of the Year from the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders' Association and nominated in the Most Outstanding Midrise category by the Ontario Home Builders' Association, validating the original concept of the Adi brothers.
Between great tasting food and breathtaking views of Burlington, guests heard from project partners about why they partnered with Adi Developments on this journey from conception through to completion.
"Adi are very bankable partners and we look forward to working with them in the future on other projects," said Fortress Real Developments CEO and President Jawad Rathore.
The Fortress Real Capital Syndicated Mortgage Investment Product, distributed by FDS Broker Services allows small investors to combine their resources to fund large-scale Canadian real estate developments across the country, in partnership with blue chip developers, via a registered mortgage instrument and earn a fixed annual rate of return of 8%.
Given what most people's investments are earning them today, syndicated mortgages offers investors remarkable returns in comparison to other products in their portfolio that aren't generating the same yield or are constantly fluctuating in value.
The Fortress Real Capital syndicate mortgage product offers investors a defined term as well as secures their money directly on title to the property, a unique feature of syndicated mortgages. These mortgage investment products are RSP, LIRA, LIF, RIF, RESP, TFSA and cash eligible, with a minimum investment of $30,000.
From L To R: Tony Popli (COO, FDS), Omar Mansour (VP, International Business Development, FDS), Tariq Adi, Zafar Khawaja (CEO, FDS), Glenn May-Anderson (President, FDS), Jawad Rathor (President & CEO, Fortress Real Developments), Vince Petrozza (COO, Fortress), Saud Adi, Hal Yeskovitch (VP, Sales, FDS).

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
