Celebrating Industry Excellence at the OHBA Awards

In a year of remarkable achievements, Minto Communities has once again distinguished itself by receiving prestigious accolades at the 2023 OHBA Awards. These awards serve as a testament to our unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional living spaces that resonate with homeowners’ needs and lifestyles. Let's delve into the details of these extraordinary wins that showcase our dedication to excellence.

Best High-Rise Building: North Oak Tower 3

One of the highly-anticipated achievements of the night was the recognition of North Oak Tower 3 as the Best High-Rise Building. Rising as the solo tower in Phase 4, North Oak Tower 3 commands a picturesque view of Athabasca Pond. 

Featuring functional layouts and elegant finishes that maximize efficiency and aesthetic appeal, Tower 3 incorporates Biophilic Design principles to seamlessly integrate natural elements throughout the building. From the stunning lobby to the carefully curated amenities in Tower 3, every detail at North Oak inspires residents to live better. 

Introducing Minto Communities' first multi-residential geo-exchange energy system that will reduce the use of fossil fuels by up to 95% and carbon emissions by as much as 70%, North Oak also targets the ENERGY STAR Multifamily High Rise Certification.

We’re honoured to be recognized by the Ontario Home Builders' Association for a project that combines functionality and design and relies on sustainable building methods to improve the well-being of North Oak residents and the Oakvillage community.

The OHBA Awards also celebrated our exceptional work in the High or Mid-Rise Condo Suite category, with 123 Portland emerging as the winner. The 1745 Suite at 123 Portland represents the epitome of modern urban living, blending classical Parisian building traditions with Toronto's urban landscape in the midst of electric King West.

Positioned on the 14th floor, it boasts a magnificent view of Toronto's downtown, with a South and West-facing orientation that provides an awe-inspiring view of the CN Tower. The Penthouse boasts a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom layout that features exceptional interior design, abundant natural light and remarkable attention to detail with high-end finishes, including a Caesarstone kitchen countertop and cutting-edge Miele appliances.

Best Condo Kitchen: 123 Portland

Another accomplishment we are proud of was the acknowledgment of the well-crafted and spacious layout of the 1745 Suite as the Best High or Mid-Rise Condo Suite Kitchen. The 1745 Penthouse is truly luxurious, with elegant finishes and a soft, textured colour palette that adds to the overall beauty of the living space, perfect for those who love to host and entertain.
