In his new role with Comtech, Nicolas will be responsible for leading the ECWE’s Property Team in defining the Project’s real estate needs and supporting the implementation of an acquisition strategy.
Domenic is an experienced Development Specialist skilled in land development, negotiation, operations management, and rail. Most recently, he worked as a Transit Development Consultant at TTC engaged in various projects, including Metrolinx Entrance Connections, Bloor Yonge Capacity Enhancements, TYSSE/YU Property Agreements, 4050 Yonge Street Development and the St. Clair Centre Revitalization Project. Domenic has experience in Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), focusing on agreement negotiations and project design approvals. He will be responsible for developing the ECWE’s Project Agreement Property Schedules in collaboration with the Technical Advisory Team.
In addition to leading the charge on the ECWE project, both Nicolas and Domenic will support Comtech’s Property Team on the Ontario Line Technical Advisory project, and vice versa.
