The Family

Manuel and his family invested in James Street North long before its renewal, opening Acclamation Restaurant in 2002, in a building that Manuel restored personally. Today, that vision is becoming a reality in the Residences at Acclamation

As a tribute to this legacy, the residences themselves have been named after the members of Manuel’s family; his wife, children, and grandchildren. With a lifetime of hard work and craftsmanship, Manuel built a company that bears his name. Now, that same quality and dedication are being used to construct the finest luxury residences in Hamilton.

Our History

Manuel Roque moved to Hamilton from the Portuguese Azores in 1960 with a dream of building a better life. Renting an apartment on James St North, Manuel knew that his future was in Hamilton. Manuel and Filomena founded their roofing company in 1980 from their little backyard in the North end, and have gone on to establish a reputation for craftsmanship and quality throughout Southern Ontario. Throughout the years Roque has ventured into property management, special events, and restaurant management.
