Canada's Condominium Magazine
Each year the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) hands out awards for the best of the year’s home-building projects in the GTA. Awards are given in forty-seven different categories, for both high-rise and low-rise developments. The categories include marketing, public relations, design, community building and green building practices, as well as several special awards. The thirty-fourth annual awards were presented on April 25.
In the high-rise category, Tridel Corporation won the award for Best High-Rise Building Design for its groundbreaking new Aqualina at Bayside condominiums. The building, which will be the first residential component of an entirely new master-planned community under development on the waterfront, just east of the downtown core, is designed by architects Arquitectonica of New York City.
Tridel’s Aqualina was also honoured for Best Salesperson or Team.
The special Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Greenpark Homes Chairman and CEO Carlo Baldassarra. This is the Association’s highest honour and was presented as a tribute to Baldassarra’s contribution to the building and development industry for more than four decades. BILD president and CEO Bryan Tuckey called Baldassarra “an industry champion” who has given much to the association and to communities throughout the GTA.
More than 1,100 industry professionals attended the event.
