We are West Oak Investments (formerly Nicor Group)

Welcome to West Oak Investments, where real estate development is more than bricks and mortar; it’s a journey that spans generations, blending heritage with innovation. Established in 1989, West Oak Investments began its story with a focus on heritage rehabilitation and condominium conversions. Today, as we move into our second generation of ownership, we have broadened our horizons, engaging in commercial development and management as well as multi-family development and management.

West Oak’s commitment to community is twofold. We’re passionate about enhancing the culture within our organization by fostering a positive, productive, and fun work environment. Our team members are our biggest assets, and we go the extra mile to ensure their well-being and growth. But our dedication to community doesn’t stop at our office doors. We’re also deeply committed to giving back to our local community. Whether it’s through charity events, community service, or other initiatives, we believe in making a difference right where we live and work.

Our Heritage

Our roots lie in preserving the rich tapestry of our local history. In 1989, West Oak Investments was founded with a mission to breathe new life into historical landmarks. We took on the challenge of heritage rehabilitation, carefully restoring the grandeur of iconic structures, and converting them into modern commercial projects or condominiums. Our dedication to preserving the cultural legacy of the community remains a source of pride and a testament to our unwavering commitment.
