In 1961 Italian born Tino Mazza arrived with his family to Canada. In 1972 Mr. Tino Mazza, with a dream to bring high quality building techniques and innovations to the city, began his career in construction and real estate development. He started building single family homes, semi-detached dwellings, commercial buildings and apartment blocks. In the height of this era his company was building as many as 50 units annually.
In the 1980’s when the climate for construction and development was unfavourable due to inflation and high interest rates, Mr. Mazza ventured to Florida to build condominiums for business colleagues. This is where many innovative ideas took hold and he aspired to continue real estate development when the demand improved in Saskatoon. More recently, in 1998 Mr. Mazza formed Bella Homes, which focused on upscale luxury custom-built homes.
In 2004, Mr. Mazza acquired several commercial land parcels, and formed Martino Development Corp. As president, Mr. Mazza led the development, sale and occupancy of a successful 126 unit luxury condominium project known as Casa Bella. In 2008, Mr. Mazza continued this multi-family direction, seeing the continued increase in demand for this type of lifestyle and residence. Tino formed Aqua Terra Development Corp. and began the development of an innovative two phase condominium project called Aqua Terra.
Aqua Terra condominiums, is currently under construction and features 110 units of luxury urban residences comprised of two 55 unit phases.
