From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Albert Reichmann (Hebrew: אלברט רייכמן‎; born 1929) was one of the five brothers that controlled the Reichmann business empire.

Albert joined his brothers Paul and Ralph in Toronto. While the eldest of the three it was Paul who had the keenest business sense and was the president of Olympia and York. Albert served in a secondary role as chairman of the company. While playing an important role in the workings of the firm Albert was most known for his philanthropic work. In the late 1980s while Paul was devoting his time to the Canary Wharf project Albert became closely involved in the cause of the Jews in the Soviet Union. Reichmann used his money and influence to try to allow them to emigrate to Israel.

After the collapse on O&Y in 1992 Albert Reichmann became president of Heathmount Arts and Entertainment Corp, a company owning a number of entertainment venues. He ran the company alongside his nephew Abraham Reichmann. The true dream of the company was the construction of a giant amusement park, known as the Technodome, inside Montreal. This project has stalled, however.
