The City of St. Albert expressed its appreciation for a generous donation of land from the Rohit Group of Companies during a brief ceremony at the February 7, 2023 Council Meeting.

Organization President Rohit Gupta, along with company Founders Radhe Gupta and Krishna Gupta, joined Mayor Heron and City Councillors for a ceremonial signing of the Land Donation Agreement at the beginning of the meeting.

“Rohit Group of Companies is focused on supporting the neighbourhoods in which we build,” says President Gupta. “For nearly 40 years, we have grown our family-owned business through hard work and innovation. It all started with a passion for building community, a passion that continues to this day.”

“The City appreciates Rohit Group of Companies’ generous donation of this land, which will be used for the City’s future Community Amenities site,” says Mayor Heron. “The site will provide additional opportunities for a growing and connected community to engage in activities that support overall well-being, health and inclusion.”

The donation consists of a 10.3 hectare (25.45 acre) parcel of land, valued at $5.65 million, located at the northerly end of the Rohit lands in Chérot.
