Tridel’s Ten York nominated for BILD Project of the Year

The Building and Land Development Association (BILD) announced the finalists for this year’s BILD Awards and as usual they provide a good representation of the many exciting residential building projects underway in Toronto, and the great architects, interior designers, planners, landscape designers, marketing and sales people who work very hard to make them happen.

In addition to a number of “Best of” awards given to builders and industry personalities for their contribution to the homebuilding industry over the entire year, awards are given in two broad categories: high rise and low rise. Within these two categories, a project can be nominated in a number of design and marketing categories.

One of the most prestigious awards BILD gives is Green Builder of the Year. That award has been won by Tridel five times already in the high-rise division, most recently last year. Tridel is nominated once again for this award honouring builders for their commitment to environmentally sustainable building design and performance.

The nominees for Green Builder of the Year, High Rise, this year are

  • Tridel
  • Liberty Development
  • Times Group

Possibly the most high-profile project ever undertaken by Tridel is nominated for several of the top BILD awards, including Project of the Year.

Ten York, the stunning skyscraper condo at York and Harbour Streets on the waterfront, is the result of a collaborative effort by many talented people. After an extended process of community consultations with members of the public and city council, the building’s original design was changed significantly. Tridel’s openness to the constructive criticism of members of the public who live in the neighbourhood where the building will stand, and that of city councilors, is rewarded in Ten York’s being nominated for this prestigious award.
