Minto Communities’ The Heights of Harmony development in north Oshawa was a big winner at the BILD Awards gala Thursday, winning Project of the Year, as well as Green Builder of the Year (low rise) for the townhouse community going up near Harmony and Conlin roads.

The annual awards, presented by the Building Industry and Land Development Association, recognize excellence in architecture, design, people and sales and marketing of new homes in the GTA. Nearly 1,000 entries were submitted for the 47 awards.

Phase 2 of the development is coming soon.

The project also won several awards at this year’s Durham Region Home Builder’s Association (DRHBA) – including the People’s Choice Award. Minto was a four-time winner at the 2021 DRHBA awards and was chose Home Builder of the Year in 2022.
