The Carlo Baldassarra Award was created by the law firm of Goldman Spring Kichler & Sanders LLP in honour of Greenpark Homes 50th anniversary and as a tribute to Carlo, his talent, vision and dedication to his business, family and community. It will be given annually to a student in the JD program in financial need who has demonstrated achievement in the area of Real Estate Law.
Carlo Baldassarra emigrated to Canada from Italy in 1958, at the age of 19. His first job in Canada was as a carpenter. Possessing a keen business sense and an understanding of the value of hard work, he was able to turn those qualities into unrivaled success in the real estate development and construction industry. A decade after arriving on Canadian shores, Carlo created Greenpark Homes, along with partners Jack Wine and Phillip Rechtsman. It would soon grow to become Canadażs largest homebuilder.
