Cameron Stephens & Lamb Developments
The Woodsworth

A proven record of working together

Watch our latest Deal Talk video featuring The Woodsworth by Lamb Development Corp. This boutique 17-storey condominium is situated in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district with 125 loft style units and retail at grade. Cameron Stephens has worked with Lamb Development Corp. on numerous projects in the past, and for this project we facilitated the land loan as well as term, mezzanine and construction financing. The project broke ground in 2019 and construction is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2021, delivering another successful project in this partnership.

Picture of recently funded student residence (rental apartments) in Waterloo with 159 units. Funded by a Cameron Stephens commercial loan of $56.95 million.


CSMC funded a $56.95MM 1st mortgage term loan, secured against two existing student rental buildings in the city of Waterloo, ON. For this deal we were able to offer our Borrower’s a low DSCR covenant and we were able to consolidate their debt into one Loan Facility. By providing a blanket 1st mortgage against two separate assets, CSMC provided one Commitment Letter for both assets at one very competitive fixed rate on a five year term basis thereby reducing both carrying costs and the overall costs associated with Borrowing.

Rendering of recently funded 183-unit condo in Barrie Ontario for which Cameron Stephens issued $52.4 million construction loan


CSMC funded a $52.4MM construction loan for a condo development in Barrie. This deal was funded in March of 2020, right as the first COVID shutdown was announced and there were a lot of unknowns in the marketplace. Even during a global pandemic, we were able to get this deal done, and get our clients into the ground, starting construction before the competition and at a fair price.

Rendering to represent recently funded condos, towns & commercial in Markham Ontario for which Cameron Stephens issued a $26.8 Pre-development loan


CSMC funded a $26.8MM pre-development loan and Letter of Credit facility that bridged a high-density project to sales and construction of its initial phase slated for this year.

CSMC was able to provide funding to refinance expensive debt, for construction of a main arterial roadway and municipal services for the site, as well as was able to complete the public transit portion of the project that has direct access to the site, including a Bus Terminal with 11 bays for VIVA, York Region Transit, GO, and Durham Regional buses.

We’re proud to finance this project and are looking forward to the growth it will bring the Markham community.

Rendering to represent recently funded towns, semis & singles in Brampton, for which Cameron Stephens issued a $9.6 million land loan


CSMC funded a new $9.6MM land loan to replace an existing 1st and 2nd mortgage at a lower cost of capital while also providing an equity take out to fund go forward soft costs leading into sales/construction.

This new project will bring 82 luxury new towns, semis and singles to Brampton. The Borrower chose to work with CSmortgageCap on the land loan given our ability to transition into a competitive construction offer.

We’re proud to partner with a developer who has been in the business over 20 years and has a proven track record of developing beautiful homes.

Rendering to represent recently funded 59 units / townhomes in Guelph, Ontario, for which Cameron Stephens issued $18.475 million construction loan


CSMCfunded a $18.475MM, 1st mortgage, construction loan & Letters of Credit, for the buildout of a 59-unit townhouse development in Guelph’s burgeoning “Alice Block” neighbourhood.

What do we love about this deal? It was negotiated, committed, and closed during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic (March, May, July), and establishes a financing relationship with a builder with roots dating back to the 1940’s, and included minimal cash equity for our Borrower. The City of Guelph continues to experience unprecedented growth and Cameron Stephens is proud to be a part of it.
