On Tuesday, September 20th, 2022 The Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) was proud to celebrate Ontario’s best of the best in residential construction at their annual Awards of Distinction. DeSantis Homes proved their ability to perform at the highest level within the industry by taking home three prestigious awards: Best Mid-High Rise Marketing Campaign, Most Outstanding Mid-High Rise Building, and the Prestige Award of Distinction – Project of the Year. All for their recently launched, heritage-inspired, Century Condos.

Located in Grimsby, Ontario, Century Condos was aptly named as the town celebrates its centennial in 2022. A building that combines innovation in design and development with bold interiors and a stunning exterior, all in collaboration with town planning staff, prominent local heritage architects, and other stakeholders via a series of design charrettes.  This sort of synergistic process has proven to be a winning recipe.

With thoughtful ingenuity, DeSantis Homes receipt of three awards exemplifies the importance of careful curation of residential buildings within a community. That exceptional design, attention to sustainability, and coordination with local planning staff are paramount to the health of each project, and the overall housing industry. DeSantis is honoured to be recognized by a panel of respected industry peers, who all share in the common goal of making the dream of home ownership achievable.

The team’s imperative to provide a quality residential condominium has not only been proven through the most recent accolades but also through the brisk sales program, selling over 80% of the available condos within a few short weeks. Due to the unique floorplate of the building a variety of suite layouts are presently available including 1 bedroom, 1 plus den, and 2 bedrooms plus den designs.

President, Gabriel DeSantis had this to say regarding the recent accolades; It’s with great honour and pride that DeSantis Homes accepts this award from the OHBA.  For more than six decades, we have been expanding the boundaries of our industry. These awards recognize our collective efforts to elevate the architecture, design, construction quality, and sustainability of the communities we build. It also represents our long-standing commitment to the home building industry and the commitment that goes into building thriving, vibrant communities that meet the needs of our residents. We are so incredibly proud of this landmark development in Downtown Grimsby. We knew Century Condos was critical to revitalizing downtown by bringing much-needed residential to the core, thereby supporting local businesses and adding to the vitality of this beautiful Town. DeSantis Homes would like to thank the OHBA, and everyone involved including McOuat Partnership, Tomas Pearce Interior Design, and KNYMH Inc for their creativity and dedication towards our projects.”
