The Canadian Home Builders’ Association recently announced the finalists of the 76th annual CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence!
The CHBA National Awards recognize the best in new homes, renovations, community development, and marketing across the country. Nearly 200 judges each reviewed more than 700 entries to determine the finalists. A select panel of jurors reviewed the finalists and selected the winners.
There are 40 awards that will be presented, including a variety of new home awards, a Net Zero Home award, a range of home renovation awards, many marketing awards, and two major awards are the Marketing Excellence and Design Excellence awards.
“Our categories reflect the incredible housing diversity in Canada: low-rise houses, high-rise apartments, and homes built for ownership or rental purposes,” says CHBA CEO Kevin Lee. “These finalists showcase the incredible innovation and creative design involved in building and renovating homes for a variety of price points.”
There are many builders and projects in Ontario that are listed as finalists. In the Attached Homes – Mid- to High-Rise Condominium or Apartment Project (Completed) category, Homes By DeSantis (AquaBlu Waterfront Condominiums in Grimsby), Kylemore Communities (The 6th Angus Glen in Markham), and Pratt Homes (Banting Square in Alliston) are nominated!
