With 3 majorly successful high-rise projects under their belt; The Craigmore, The Mary Ann, and Point North, BANC Group is well known as both a capable development company, as well as friendly and efficient property managers.


Founded in 1998 by Besim Halef, originally as a steel fabrication company, BANC grew over the years and shifted their focus onto the ever-growing Halifax development landscape. Starting with major land development, Besim and BANC Group were at the helm of developments such as the Bedford Commons, the Mount Royal Subdivision, Rockingham South, and the continually-expanding Bayers Lake Business Park. After years of Project Management experience, and a degree in Industrial Engineering, Besim's son, Alex Halef, shifted his focus in the business towards mixed-use concrete high-rise development. This shift brought upon well known projects such as: The Craigmore, The Mary Ann, and Point North, all of which have been highly successful, well managed, developments that are now pillars of the Haligonian landscape.

The first concrete high-rise development by BANC Group, The Craigmore stands tall at 16-stories and is home to the BANC Group head office. Winning several awards from the Canadian Precast Concrete Institute, the building cemented BANC's future in this industry and guaranteed quality developments for Halifax as it continues to evolve.

The Margaretta is going to continue to once again push the boundaries of quality development and set new standards in residential living in Halifax.
