Article Featuring Horizon Legacy Founder in Globe and Mail

An article featuring Horizon Legacy founder, Walter Zwig, was published in the Globe and Mail celebrating his many lifelong achievements and mentions many projects the company has accomplished.




"Then there's Walter Zwig, who at 81 is still going strong after a 50-year career during which he was responsible for building about six million square feet of space in 13 downtown Toronto office towers, all on or connected to the Yonge Street subway line.

Mr. Zwig developed these properties as the head of Horizon Developments Ltd., the first one for Prudential Insurance Co. of America's Canadian subsidiary at the northwest corner of Yonge and King streets in the heart of the financial district. That building opened in 1958, and the following year Horizon opened the National Trust.

Although semi-retired, Mr. Zwig spends about nine months a year in Toronto, where he advises Horizon Legacy Group, the successor to his own firm, where his son Tony is president. He divides the rest of his time between his condominium in Boca Raton, Fla., which he bought two years ago, and sailing."
