PURPOSE
Creating smarter built environments and shaping Atlanta's future
 

Mark Toro’s passion lies in creating smarter built environments and healthier, happier places. He believes a thoughtfully designed place fosters a higher quality of life for its users, and as a new grandfather, he hopes his vision will result in a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren. Whether through his relentless advocating for expanded transit and walkability, lending his expertise to rebuild one of Atlanta’s most impoverished neighborhoods or developing award-winning mixed-use communities, Mark is constantly reimagining “place” by focusing on the street level energy and human experience.  With the recent repositioning of Atlantic Station, development of Alpharetta’s $1 billion Avalon project and redevelopment of Colony Square, Mark continues to fearlessly lead the NAP Atlanta team through uncharted waters, where together they are developing a new generation of experience-driven commercial real estate.

Ever engaged in helping to shape the future of metro Atlanta, Mark currently chairs Midtown Alliance’s Board of Directors and serves on the Boards of Woodruff Arts Center and City of Refuge, where he chairs the $25 million “Shining the Light” capital campaign.

Mark has been named one of “55 Most Influential Atlantans” by Atlanta Magazine, recognized as one of the “Most Admired CEOs” by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, presented with the Henry H. Robinson Award by Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors, honored by the Hispanic American Business Leadership Association as Entrepreneur of the Year and named Citizen of the Year by Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce.   

Before cofounding North American Properties’ Atlanta office in 1996, Mark served in several leadership positions with Faison and Cousins Properties. He has acquired, developed or redeveloped more than 70 projects totaling almost 30 million square feet.

Mark attended Rutgers University, where he met his wife, Nancy. The Toros have two daughters and three grandchildren.
