Canadian real estate billionaire Andreas “Andy” Apostolopoulos passed away suddenly at his home on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021, at 69 years old. He immigrated to Canada as a teenager in 1969 from Messini, Kalamata in Greece.
Along with his three sons, Andreas Apostolopoulos built one of Canada’s largest privately held real estate corporations into a multi-billion dollar empire – Triple Group of Companies (TGC), based in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2009, Apostolopoulos made a splash when his investment company purchased the Pontiasophic Silverdome at auction for $583,000. A low purchase price for an 82,000-seat stadium that had been constructed in 1975 for $55.7 million.
Apostolopoulos’s company Triple Sports and Entertainment managed and operated the Silverdome as a sports and entertainment venue.
He is survived by his wife, sons Jim Apostolopoulos, Peter Apostolopoulos, and Steve Apostolopoulos, their spouses, and five grandchildren.
