Abbotsford company wins national award for Chilliwack project

Algra Bros. development honoured by the Canadian Home Builders' Association.

The 'Brownstones on the Boulevard' townhouse development in Chilliwack has garnered a national award for an Abbotsford company.

An Abbotsford company has won an award from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA).

Algra Bros. Developments Ltd. was the recipient of a New Homes Award for its “Brownstones on the Boulevard” project on Garrison Boulevard in Chilliwack.

The homes are noted for their bold red brick, unique architectural facades and wrought-iron detailing, similar to Manhattan’s upper west side penthouses or Brooklyn’s townhomes.

The honour was presented during the CHBA’s annual SAM awards in Whistler on April 4. The awards recognize the achievements of home builders, renovators and developers across Canada.

The Algra Bros. project won a Georgie Award in 2012 for Best Townhouse Development.

The company is owned and operated by brothers Phil, Peter and Dave Algra.
