Empire received the Silver Award for Best Developer - North America, and a Gold for Best Marketing Campaign. Both awards were in recognition of Empire's landmark waterfront community Eau Du Soleil. The complex, located by the shores of Humber Bay, will consist of 63 and 49 storey conjoined towers designed by Zeidler Partnership Architects and Richmond Architects, and will offer scenic waterfront views and luxury amenities.

On hand to receive the awards were Empire’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Development, Andrew Guido and Senior Vice President of Sales, Dan Flomen. “We are extremely honoured to be acknowledged by a global organization such as the OPP Group. To be in the company of some of the world’s most renowned developers is an outstanding achievement for Empire. We are so proud of the work that we have done on Eau Du Soleil and winning awards in these distinguished categories makes it all the more gratifying,” said Mr. Flomen.
