A month after Toronto's Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) published their shortlists for the projects that would be competing to take home one of the 2023 BILD Awards, the results are officially in. Recognizing the best of the year in an array of categories, from best new community, to best suite design, to best branding, this year's class of winners were selected by a panel of judges appointed by BILD, and are representative of the high standard of development that keeps the Greater Toronto Area evolving year in and year out. 

To offer a summary of the highlights from the 2023 BILD Awards, we have prepared a roundup of some of the notable award winners… but with almost 50 different awards given this year, a trip to BILD's website — linked here — will reveal the full list of winning projects!
