Khash believes in deep engagement with his projects at all stages of development. By leading some of Toronto’s best consultants and construction teams alike, he ensures that each of his buildings upholds the highest industry standards.
From a marketing perspective, Khash maintains a pulse on consumer needs by taking an active role in the process.

A true believer of the phrases “knowledge is power”, over the years, Khash has taken every opportunity to educate himself and learn from priceless experiences of those who have spent a lifetime in the field. While completing his undergraduate studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Toronto, Khash started investing in the fast-growing real estate market of Toronto in the early 2000s. He continued his studies by completing his Master’s degree in Engineering, taking on academic research positions at University of Toronto and Nortel Institute of Technology, working with some of the brightest minds in the country and publishing multiple peer-reviewed papers in academic journals.
While enrolled in his PhD program at the University of Toronto, Khash left the academic field to concentrate on his real estate goals. He took the natural step of adding development and construction to his investment portfolio. Taking advantage of the market slowdown of 2008, Khash purchased and later developed over $12M worth of low-rise properties in the luxury market. In 2010, he co-founded Mizrahi Developments, with Mr. Sam Mizrahi who at the time was working for Khash as a general contractor. He assembled the lands, developed and built a number of projects in the partnership including the residences at 133 Hazelton, and 181 Davenport. He also invested and developed 128 Hazelton, 1451 Wellington in Ottawa, and One Bloor Street West, before leaving in 2015 to start H&CO Developments with a dedicated focus on mid-rise developments with even higher standards and objectives than before.
In addition to the Real Estate industry which is Khash’s passion, Khash owns a number of acclaimed restaurants in Toronto under the umbrella of Peer To Peer Hospitality Group. Khash's hospitality enterprise, consists of luxury dining restaurants including Cava, Chabrol, Atlas, Tanto, Lapin (Currently under construction), a catering company and a full-service hospitality design and operation management company.
Charitable activities and support of arts are front and centre in all of Khash's business ventures. Through partnerships with Michael Garron Hospital, CAMH, UJA, Sunnybrook Hospital, Sick Kids Foundation, St. John Ambulance, Kensington Hospice, Children Development Institute, and Good Shepherd Ministries, Khash ensures he is giving back where possible to provide better opportunities for others.
