Homebuilders in the Greater Toronto area received some well-deserved kudos this past weekend at an award ceremony held by the Building Industry and Development Association.
The award ceremony is an annual event and is held to recognize homebuilders whose work has been extraordinary.
The most prestigious award – the Home Builder of the Year – went to Mattamy Homes, marking the fourth straight year it received the coveted trophy. The company has been getting so many of them, it may need to put a few in a storage unit to make room for their new hardware.
Another trophy went to Jeanhy Shim of Streetcar Developments for outstanding achievement in residential sales.
"As I look around the room and see so many of the industry's most respected faces, I can truly say that those walking out of this room with trophies in hand really are the best of the best," said Paul Golini, chairman of the BILD.
Home construction and sales are something that the Toronto area has thrived in over the past year. However, a recent report from the Toronto Real Estate Board found that home sales declined a bit in March. Statistics on how the market fared in April should be released soon.
