TORONTO, May 2 /CNW/ - The DelZotto family at the helm of Tridel has
devoted more than eight decades to building homes across the GTA. For
that and so much more, the DelZotto brothers Angelo, Elvio and Leo were
honoured with the prestigious BILD Lifetime Achievement Award at the 31st annual BILD Awards.
"We are so complimented to receive this very special award," said Leo
DelZotto, who was flanked by his brothers on stage after accepting the
award in front of nearly 1,000 professionals in the industry.
The patriarch, Jack DelZotto, was a stonemason who came to Canada from
Italy in 1927. After a few years in northern Ontario, he moved to
Toronto and started crafting single-family homes. By the 1950s, Tridel
was formed and Jack's three sons had joined him in the business and
became involved in developing housing subdivisions and small apartment
In 1961, the company built its first apartment complex featuring twin
towers with 520 units and a recreation centre with a pool, fountains
and landscaped grounds. It marked the beginning of a new era in luxury
condominium living and remains the hallmark of Tridel's building
Leo and his brothers credit their father with instilling the values of
integrity, quality and customer service in every one of the 70,000
homes the company has built across the GTA. Tridel has been a regular
finalist and past winner of BILD Home Builder of the Year award and
practically owns BILD's Green Builder of the Year Award, winning it
four years out of the five since its inception.
"This is an award that has been more than 80 years and 70,000 units in
the making and this is truly a lifetime of achievement," said BILD
Chair Paul Golini Jr.
Throughout the awards night, BILD's social media team documented the
event's proceedings with live updates via Twitter
