Since 1991 the OHBA Awards of Distinction have recognized creativity, innovation, and talent within the industry. “Nørdic’s nominations are a testament to the value of a community that recognizes the important relationship between human well-being and the rejuvenative forces of nature, between good design and accessible living, between a convenient location directly on the subway and the appeal of inspiring amenities close to home,” says Natascha Pieper, VP Sales and Marketing at Collecdev.

Two nominations sure to garner attention are the People’s Choice Award and Project of the Year – High or Mid-Rise, the former since it’s an unmistakable reflection of the many happy purchasers who have made Nørdic a sold-out success, and the latter since it represents the best of the best among the industry. We’re thrilled for all the nominations, because they mean that the passion, care, and attention we’ve committed to building a better, healthier, more inclusive, sustainable, and accessible community have set new standards for the way projects get built.

Architecturally, Nørdic impressed the judges from top to bottom, recognized for both Best Lobby Entrance and Best High or Mid-Rise Condo Suite. The lobby greets residents with a striking space featuring a refined, yet relaxed vibe. Between the 24-hour concierge, lighting-fast wifi, and a digital display showing current transit commute times, it’s is equipped with everything to make everyday living a snap.

On the floors above, suites are designed with innovative wide shallow layouts that flood spaces with natural light and ensure an efficient flow. Generous balconies are sheltered from the elements and every unit offers a strong connection to the outdoors, promoting a better, happier, healthier lifestyle. These are spaces that feel comfortable – the perfect backdrop for a soft, relaxed, minimal aesthetic that gives you vacation vibes without ever leaving home.

On the marketing side, Nørdic has been rewarded with three nods:Best Social Media Campaign, Best High or Mid-Rise Ad Campaign, and Best High or Mid-Rise Project Sales Brochure. These nominations highlight that each of these elements helped craft the narrative of the community, the story of a better way to live.

Together, these nominations confirm what we know to be true – through our commitment to our three pillars of social sustainability, environmental stewardship, and experiential design, we’re building a brighter future and helping to shape the industry for generations to come.
