Collecdev introduces Tretti Condos

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

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.

Downsview Park lifestyle opportunities on display at documentary screening at The Keeley

Downsview Park lifestyle opportunities on display at documentary screening at The Keeley

The Keeley 1

ULI Toronto and mixed-use developer TAS recently brought community members and industry leaders together for an evening that combined a documentary screening of Accidental Parkland, and an expert panel about placemaking opportunities in Downsview Park.

The event took place on the future site of The Keeley, a new midrise development by TAS located at 3100 Keele St., directly across the street from Downsview Park. Plans for The Keeley include a new public park that will visibly connect two very significant urban greenspaces, Downsview Park on the east and Black Creek Ravine on the West.

The Keeley 2

MORE THAN JUST A PARK

Almost 300 acres in size, Downsview Park over the last several years has undergone major landscape improvements including: A pond that has attracted all sorts of wildlife, a local food movement including an apple orchard and several urban farms, a three-km circuit path, a tall grass project and an urban forest. The new Downsview Park subway and GO station, revitalization of the Hangar buildings, upcoming opening of Centennial College and the sale of adjacent sale of the Bombardier Lands is also turning new attention to Downsview Park.

Moderated by Jane Farrow, public engagement specialist, Dept of Works and Deeds, the panel included two spokespeople from the documentary – Christopher Glaisek, vice-president for planning and design, Waterfront Toronto, Chandra Sharma, director, watershed strategies at Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), and Mazyar Mortazavi, CEO of TAS.

“Downsview Park sits in the middle of two very important water courses, says Charma. “On the east is the Don River on the West is Humber Valley and Black Creek. So, the role this whole area plays is as a vital east-west connection.”

THE KEELEY

Known for developing projects in up-and-coming neighborhoods, Mortazavi stressed the opportunity he saw for The Keeley with Downsview Park across the street, and more importantly, the ravine system as a vital piece of community infrastructure. When you get into the ravine, “you are in a very lush environment,” says Mortazavi. But the ravine also “acts as a fundamental connector. You can get on a bike from behind this property and bike all the way to York University. The bike network there connects to 12 km of bike trails that are being built.” You are then connected to Downsview, the largest urban park in Canada.

The Keeley 3

Glaisek, who manages park designs for Waterfront Toronto, identified some parallels between Toronto’s Waterfront and Downsview Park. Like the waterfront, not many people in the city are familiar with things to see inside the park. Both are also very large-scale, multi-generational projects.From a marketing point of view, Glaisek says, “getting people to understand the gems that are there before they have all been enmeshed in the bigger vision would really help keep Downsview in people’s consciousness.” He also stresses the other component of great parks is the programming diversity within them, and how neighbourhood and stakeholder consultations are critical to developing a program and design.

MOMENT OF CHANGE

Farrow asked some questions of key stakeholders and city building influencers who were in the audience, including, Al Rezoski, manager of community planning for North York, James Cox, senior director of real estate from Canada Lands, and Julian Sleath, CEO of the Bentway. One of the points discussed was the value of parks as huge benefit to society to improve mental health. Sleath expressed how other cities are channeling health care money to large projects, such as parklands and rejuvenation of public space, and seeing health care programs diminish.

Downsview Park is at that moment where things are starting to change, Mortazavi says. “The biggest piece of all this is that we need to have a different kind of conversation focused on collaborative partnerships. We all want the same outcomes – we just need to be talking with each other more.”

City Towns are coming to Downsview Park

If you’ve been keeping up with what’s happening on Toronto’s urban development scene, you will have noticed Downsview Park making headlines, and for good reason. This urban contemporary development delivers the best of the city while providing you with comforts more typical of suburban living.

Stafford has just announced the release of City Towns, a stacked condo townhouse collection of just 27 homes. One-storey units and two-storey units with rooftop terraces range in size from 1,344 to 1,652 square feet, with two or three bedrooms. The luxury finishes include open-concept floorplans, nine-foot ceilings, granite or quartz countertops and engineered hardwood flooring in the kitchen, living room and dining room. Register now to receive priority access to project information.

Downsview Park’s townhomes exemplify Stafford’ strong reputation for high-quality, beautiful designs and efficient living spaces.

The freehold towns range in size from 2,970 to 3,976 square feet, including lower levels. You have the choice of three to six bedrooms, including a full-floor master retreat if you prefer. Great attention has been spent on the details and finishes, from nine-foot ceilings and hardwood floors to granite countertops and stainless appliances in the kitchen – and that’s before upgrades. The design consultants at Stafford’s Design Studio will ensure your home is completely personalized. Prices start at $1.45 million for the freehold townhomes.

Building luxury, sustainable, green homes that put homeowners close to the action without a commute is a rare opportunity, which is why Stafford jumped at the chance to develop this community.

“We’ve designed our new townhome collection keeping in mind what makes people happy,” says Jonathan Goldman, President of Stafford. “We’re not just manufacturing a product here. We’re building spaces that influence how people live their lives and raise their families; a lifestyle that will shape the future of homeowners by its proximity to parks, schools, shopping, theatres, restaurants. It’s about the bigger picture.”

Private, green backyards and garages are a big perk of this collection, one that’s almost never found beyond the urban sprawl. Just steps away from your backyard is a neighbourhood park, complete with play structure, splash pad and more. That’s in addition to Downsview Park, a dynamic outdoor park that reflects the diverse nature of the surrounding area and is home to a plethora of educational, sports and cultural events.

Stafford’s new development is where luxury homes, schools, parks and community spirit meet city living. Providing fast and easy access to downtown, you’ll find Highway 401 just minutes away, connecting you with the Don Valley Parkway, or Highway 404 if the north is calling. And the Downsview Park subway station, now under construction, is just five minutes away. From there, Yorkdale’s world-class shopping experience is two subway stops away, Bloor and Yonge 11 stops away, and Union Station 15 stops away. By the end of 2017, York University will also be a five-minute train ride away.

Only 155 townhomes make up this exclusive freehold collection, making this an excellent investment opportunity for now and the long-term.
