Midtown Toronto – Where exactly is that?

Mention Midtown Toronto to people, and they generally react in one of two ways. “Where exactly is that?? – the inference being that in a growing city of this size, pinpointing where the centre is difficult, to say the least.

And once realizing “Midtown” is roughly defined by Bloor Street to the south, Eglinton Avenue to the north, Bayview to the east and around Dufferin Street to the west, people often think “Old Toronto.”

And in the context of real estate, that means high-priced.

Increasingly accessible

Indeed, with neighbourhoods such as Rosedale, Forest Hill, Deer Park, Summerhill and Yonge & Eglinton, Midtown is generally affluent and exclusive. Signature detached homes in any of these areas can easily run into the multi-million-dollar range.

However, new developments coming on the scene, particularly some landmark highrise condominiums, are making the area increasingly accessible to a variety of residents.

Once commonly known as “Yonge & Eligible,” due to its popularity among young single professionals, Yonge and Eglinton is quickly becoming one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods, appealing to a variety of lifestyles.

Boasting five-star restaurants, boutiques, diverse retail services, schools and corporate head offices, residents have plenty of options for work and play right out their front door.

Crosstown traffic

If a great midtown location isn’t enough, proximity to transit is also a significant appeal of this area, being right on the Yonge Street subway line. And come 2021, moving about the city will get even easier, with the expected opening of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.

Slightly off the beaten trail, wander over to nearby Davisville Village, Mount Pleasant Village and Forest Hill Village for a taste of what that Old Toronto was like, still with small, independent shops and nice little parkettes.

Collecdev introduces Tretti Condos – Scandinavian-inspired living in the heart of Wilson Heights

If Instagram, Pinterest, and a million design blogs are to be believed, Scandinavian design is having a major moment. This positions Tretti Condos, a Scandinavian-inspired community by Collecdev, as the perfect new home. But, true to form for the socially-conscious developer, Tretti doesn’t just pay lip service to the northern European aesthetic.

“The ethos of Tretti celebrates craftsmanship, function, and social connection,” says Collecdev President, Maurice Wager, “which are the inherent values of Collecdev. We believe that good design and a true connection to a thriving community should be accessible to everyone. That’s what we’re delivering at Tretti.”

Sitting in the heart of Wilson Heights, a stone’s throw from Yorkdale Shopping Centre and steps from the subway, Tretti offers 13 storeys of understated modern design. Minimalist architecture by award-winning firm gh3* maximizes form and function, giving way to bright open-concept interiors outfitted in a palette of natural finishes that transition seamlessly to the outdoors.

The striking combination of contemporary architecture, elegant interiors, and a strong connection to nature satisfies Collecdev’s commitment to experiential design. It allows the developer to create human-centred communities that display a fundamental understanding of the way people truly want to live.

That commitment extends not only to the community, but to the environment and to society at large through initiatives such as innovative geothermal energy systems that reduce the negative impact of urban development, and Collecdev H.O.M.E. (Home Ownership Made Easy), a program that will help more people realize their dreams of homeownership at Tretti, and ensure the city’s long-term accessibility and growth.

Speaking of accessibility, Tretti residents will enjoy convenient access to a neighbourhood bursting with parks, shopping, bars, restaurants, and bakeries. Fill up on style at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Bike to Downsview Park. Sample Wilson Heights’ diverse eateries. Or commute easily to York University, Humber River Hospital, and Hwy. 401. But it may be hard to tear yourself away from the incredible lineup of amenities on site.

Tretti will feel like a breath of fresh air with outdoor spaces that include expansive terraces, a rooftop fireside lounge, a children’s playscape, private courtyards, a 16,000 sq. ft. community park, and more than 100 trees creating an urban forest in the heart of the city.

Little ones will find room to grow in the children’s play area, offering cosy reading nooks and a stage where imaginations can run wild. Four-legged family members will love the pet-friendly indoor playground and washing station. The modern lobby, elegant dining room and lounge, and state-of-the-art fitness studio create natural gathering points, places to entertain, relax, play, and interact. And, lest you think work has been forgotten, Tretti features a collaborative co-working space, designed for freelancers and digital nomads seeking a place to be productive, connected, and inspired.

With multi-functional design, thoughtful amenities, a vibrant community, direct subway access, and spacious two-bedroom suites priced from the $400,000s, Tretti offers incredible value, truly the best of all worlds. It’s Scandinavian style with a Toronto address. And it’s ready to welcome you home.
