Our Story

Our Founders

We’ve come a long way since Jack DelZotto, the founder of our company built our first home in 1934.  We think it’s important we introduce you to Jack because his strong belief in family, home and community is the bedrock for our entire organization.  Jack was ahead of his time in a lot of things and a true innovator, who built the first apartment complex in 1961, featuring twin towers, a swimming pool, a recreation centre and landscaped grounds,  the forerunner of today’s modern condominium.

Our founders redefined what ‘home’ is. A home is more than its physical properties of bricks and mortar. It is a lifestyle and a community that connects us to each other and our surroundings. This idea transformed the industry (and our world). What we started over five decades ago is now recognized as the most innovative, sustainable concept in building new homes and communities.

Today, Jack’s three sons, Angelo, Elvio and Leo and their children have carried on the tradition of family values, and innovation.  A tradition that inspires everyone who works or is connected to Tridel, to be a part of something great, something bigger than themselves and to make the world a better place.

This is Tridel.  This is who we are, with our founder Jack in heart and mind.
