The Landrex legacy spans decades of hard work and dedication. The way we operate today can be traced back to the company’s inception in 1972, inspired by the leadership of CEO and founder, Larry Andrews. Since our very first development, we have been committed to crafting innovative and family-friendly communities that continue to inspire and delight for years to come.

Inception of Landrex
Larry Andrews establishes the Gibraltar Group of Companies in 1972 and subsequently amalgamated them into Landrex Corp. Since that time, Landrex has become one of the most successful privately held land development firms in Alberta. Landrex gets its name from the combination of two words: “Land”, representing the land development business, and “Rex” meaning “King” in Latin. We strive to be the best. The primary business has been in the Edmonton area, however Landrex has also been actively involved in business in Munich, Honolulu, Southern California, and most recently Dubai.
