Philip began his formal career as a commercial leasing representative at Olympia & York Developments Limited. In subsequent years, Philip was involved in the development of World Financial Center in New York and Canary Wharf in London, England.
In 1993, together with his partner Frank Hauer, Philip formed O&Y Properties Inc. to manage and lease a portfolio of ten office properties consisting of nine million square feet.

O&Y Properties Corporation and O&Y REIT were sold to a consortium led by Brookfield Corporation in October 2005. At the time of the sale, O&Y Properties Corporation owned directly and indirectly through its interest in O&Y REIT, a portfolio of 24 office properties totalling approximately 10 million square feet in seven Canadian markets.
