We ran a post a couple of weeks ago when we found out about a seemingly anonymous twitter account called ‘livesplanade‘ that was set up where a Toronto developer was offering ‘$5,000 for 5 minutes work‘.
All has now been revealed and we know what’s going on – a trio of top builders, Cityzen Development Group, Castlepoint Real Estate Partners and Fernbrook Homes have launched a contest to name their new condo project “Name Our Condo” with the winning entrant getting five thousand dollars in ‘cold hard cash‘.
There’s already almost 30 entries with the top one at time of posting being ‘Promenade Point’.
We think this is a great idea from Citzyen. For all of those out there who hear a new condo name and think ‘I could have come up with something better than THAT!’, here’s your chance!
It seems pretty simple; go to the site, check out the contest brief and enter your idea. There’s a public vote to come up with the top 10 entries that will then be put to a jury of representatives from the developers and their key consultants to come up with the overall winner.
iPads are on offer for 2nd and 3rd place too so the incentive to enter is almost certainly there!
The onus is on the entrant to spread the word and get votes via their social networks which is clever of Cityzen as it gives them a great presence in the online social media world.
Kudos too for having such a publicly engaging contest for what at the end of the day, is an integral part of any new condo development.
The BuzzBuzz Tower is currently sitting in 9th place. Be sure to vote for us when you log your own entry! Let us know what your one is and we promise we’ll vote for you too!
