Paul Oberman 1957 – 2011

Paul Oberman was born in Toronto in 1957 and died tragically in March of this year. Over the span of 30 years, he built a distinguished career in real estate development, with a particular eye and interest in sensitive and sophisticated, heritage restoration. He leaves behind a physical legacy of extraordinary buildings and a deep care about the city of his birth and every community he has served. Under Oberman’s leadership as President and CEO, Woodcliffe Corporation has demonstrated a commitment to heritage preservation — developing, acquiring, marketing, and managing historic properties. The best known of these properties is the Summerhill Station, now an LCBO store, and the Gooderham Flatiron Building at 49 Wellington Street East. Woodcliffe and its projects have received multiple architectural awards including Heritage Canada’s only awarding of its prestigious Corporate Award. Oberman served as a Design Exchange (DX) board membersince December 2009. An award honouring Oberman, to benefit students studying at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto, will be established.
