The annual BILD awards have become a fixture of the real estate development industry, honouring standout builders, marketing teams, realtors and designers. 2012 marks the 32nd year of the awards, and, with all the development we saw in 2011, will surely make for an interesting award show. We've received a list of the finalists selected, which includes many well-known projects in the GTA as well as some that many of you may not have heard of previously. Let's take a quick look at those that have stood out over the past year.

The first set of awards looks at high-rise communities; Aspen Ridge Homes' Studio on Richmond is up against CentreCourt's Peter Street Condominiums, Lifetime's The Yorkville Condominiums, Lindvest's B.streets Condos and Madison Homes' The Madison in the category of high-rise project of the year.

Closely mirroring the project of the year is the best building design category, which sees Studio on Richmond, B.streets, and the Yorkville Condominiums up against Great Gulf Home's Monde, and Empire Communities' Rain Condominiums.

The list of finalists is quite extensive; we've posted the major categories as well as those relevant to high-rises below. For the entire list of finalists, click here to download the PDF. Let us know who you think should win, or if you think an unlisted project should be taken into consideration. Good luck to all the nominees, and we'll report back with the finalists when the results are in at the end of April!
