Innovation & Collaboration: Collecdev & Nerva deliver healthier communitiesJune 8, 2022 READ MORE
When Fernando Valenzuela learned about Nerva Energy, he knew it would be a good fit...
When Fernando Valenzuela learned about Nerva Energy, he knew it would be a good fit for Collecdev. “At Collecdev we believe we have an inherent responsibility to build long-lasting, future-forward, balanced urban landscapes that minimize our impact on the planet,” said the Vice President of Development. “I knew that collaborating with Nerva could help us reduce our carbon footprint and deliver healthier communities, creating real value not only for our homeowners, but for everyone.”
That value will soon become evident in our Tippett Park community in Wilson Heights, thanks to an innovative construction technology known as Nerva Suite Seal, a system that will not only significantly lower energy consumption for the building, resulting in operational savings, environmental benefits, and optimized HVAC function, but will also reduce the spread of airborne disease and improve air quality, two important benefits, following Covid-19. Nerva will be implemented in a multi-unit residential building at Tippett Park Phase 2, which is scheduled to occupy this summer.
Leaders of Innovation & Sustainability
Collecdev is the first major developer in Canada to roll out Suite Seal in a multi-unit residential building. The advanced technology prevents air transfer between suites, creating air tightness that results in a tighter building envelope. Suite sealing technology can seal gaps as big as ½” in diameter, and as small as a hair follicle.
This small change delivers big benefits:
- A 98% reduction in air leakage
- Lower utility bills (up to 30%)
- Better indoor air quality
- Reduced transfer of odours
- Better performance for HVAC systems
- Improved soundproofing
- Protection against insects and pests
As a result, residents of our Tippett Park community will enjoy greater comfort, greater savings and greater peace of mind in a future-proofed building that puts tomorrow’s technology to work today.
As an industry leader in Environmental Stewardship, Collecdev’s collaboration with Nerva Energy is a natural fit. The award-winning Canadian energy consulting firm – recently recognized as AEE-International Energy Innovator of the Year – shares our vision to leverage advanced building technologies that go beyond industry standards and create high-performance communities that promote a healthier planet.
Their relentless pursuit of innovation dovetails with our own ethos, one that underpins each of our three pillars – Social Sustainability, Experiential Design and Environmental Stewardship – and that has positioned us as an early adopter of many future-forward technologies including geothermal energy systems, cloud-based management software, 3D laser scanners and drones. With each new tool we move closer to our goal of building communities that go beyond traditional building methodologies to conserve more energy and resources than standard code compliant buildings, and move the industry forward.
“We’re paving the way for the next generation in community-building,” says Valenzuela, “and our Tippett Park is just the start. We will continue to pursue every option available to deliver healthy, human-centred developments that respond to today’s needs, while shaping a brighter tomorrow for future generations.”
Stop and smell the roses: Student art now on display at Westwood GardensMay 20, 2022 READ MORE
“Stop and smell the roses.” It’s an expression that aligns perfectly with our philosophy at Collecdev – live in the moment, savour the experience of the everyday, surround yourself with beauty. And now, it’s an expression that extends to real life thanks to our latest collaboration with the young artists of the Claude Watson Secondary Arts Program – Earl Haig (CWSAP-EH) and their rose-inspired artwork at Westwood Gardens.
The Westwood Gardens Lobby is In Full Bloom
If you read our blog post a few months back, you know that, for our second art initiative with the Visual Arts Department at CWSAP-EH, students were invited to produce works inspired by blooming roses and romantic floral motifs, pieces that are now gracing the lobby at Westwood Gardens.
“Our first initiative with CWSAP-EH for Nørdic Condos was such a success that we were inspired to do it again. This partnership exemplifies one of our core beliefs – that art has the power to engage the public and enhance the built environment.”
Natascha Pieper, VP of Sales and Marketing, Collecdev
Once again, in the spirit of collaboration, our Instagram audience helped shortlist their favourite submissions. Those works are now on permanent display in the East Tower lobby at Westwood Gardens, creating a spectacular entrance for residents each time they arrive home.
Check out their inspiring works below, now on display at Westwood Gardens.
A Tapestry of Beauty at Westwood Gardens
Inspired by the celebrated floral history of Richmond Hill, Westwood Gardens presents a community where exquisite landscape design is integral to the overall residential experience. From the Dreamer’s Court, a bold street-level patterned courtyard radiating out from a central island full of greenery, to the eighth-floor rooftop terrace where a dramatic central corridor leads to a fireside lounge under glowing chandeliers and a flowering pergola, outdoor spaces have been carefully programmed to create the feeling of an intimate urban backyard.
“Like the Rose, I Flourish,” “En la Rose Je Fleuris,” states the Richmond Hill motto, and that’s exactly our aim – to see Westwood Gardens residents and future generations of young artists, flourish, just like the Richmond Hill rose.
Westwood Gardens is currently sold out and under construction. To learn more about other inspiring Collecdev communities, register here.
Collecdev and Cielo reach new heights with 7 BILD nominationsMay 16, 2022 READ MORE
The sky is the limit. That was our philosophy at Cielo – an approach to design and programming that prioritized the human experience and resulted in a community that not only accommodates, but actively fosters connection and a better way to live. And the possibilities have been limitless, not just for the community, but for its kudos.
Since launching last year, Collecdev and Cielo have been recognized by the industry’s top awards and associations. It’s with great pride that we announce the latest – 7 nominations for the 2022 BILD Awards, including 2 Pinnacle awards.
- Pinnacle Green Builder of the Year
- Pinnacle Best New Community, Planned/Under Development
- Best High-Rise Building Design
- Best Presentation Centre
- Best Innovative Suite Design
- Best Site Signage
- Best Salesperson or Team
From architecture to interior design, sales to signage, Cielo has made a lasting impression. Why?
To begin with, there’s the building’s striking architectural presence, a statement of refined modernism, poised above a 19th century landmark, high above Bloor Street West. Designed by the world-renowned architectural firm KPMB, Cielo seamlessly incorporates the neo-Gothic structure of Bloor Street United Church into its vertical elegance, ensuring the long-term sustainability of the neighbourhood institution.
Then of course, there are the design and lifestyle choices, things like thoughtful amenity programming that cultivates a real sense of community, and unparalleled suite features like Miele integrated appliances, custom designed vanity in a variety of colours, 95% of suites are designed with outdoor living areas that create the modern equivalent of the private backyard.
All of this is supported by sustainable building practices that underpin Collecdev’s core pillar of Environmental Stewardship. The nomination for Green Builder of the Year is a particularly significant accomplishment because Collecdev gives careful consideration and implementation of advanced building technologies and alternative energy sources to develop communities that ensure a better tomorrow. We understand the inherent impact of our communities on the natural and built environment. And with each new community we build, the proof of this philosophy is coming to light. That’s why we continue to champion excellence in innovation, and new sustainability technologies and practices that help move the industry forward and create healthier homes.
We extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped make Cielo such an incredible success.
Winners will be announced on June 21st at bildawards.com.
Cielo Condos is currently 95% sold. To learn more about this exciting community and about Collecdev’s full portfolio of inspiring, engaging communities, register today. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Come see the winning entries from our collaboration with the students at the Claude Watson Secondary Arts Program – Earl Haig
The wait is finally over! The brilliant artworks from Collecdev’s collaboration with Claude Watson Secondary Arts Program-Earl Haig campus (CWSAP-EH) are now live and in living colour on the Nørdic hoarding at 500 Wilson Avenue.
Come see the Scandinavian inspired pieces that include polygon animals, traditional red Scandinavian homes, Oslo art sculptures, the breathtaking Northern Lights and angel wings to snap your next Instagram photo. Every piece on the 500’ construction hoarding was inspired by iconic images of Scandinavia and voted on by our team, with a helping hand from our amazing Instagram followers.
An enormous thank you to all the talented grade 11 and 12 CWSA-Earl Haig visual arts students who participated in the contest. The enthusiastic response was confirmation of our commitment to social sustainability, a pillar that drives us to seek creative ways to celebrate art and build community.
“As a current artist and aspiring illustrator, I will undoubtedly come across scenarios where I will work with a client. This collaboration has allowed me to warm up to the concept of working commercially. It’s an opportunity of outreach, which is especially important during a time of isolation.” – Jeannette Oh, Grade 12 Visual Arts major
“This was a wonderful opportunity for our senior students to engage in their community as well as commercial art making. We place an emphasis on the applied arts as a part of our senior Claude Watson curriculum and working on this project really afforded us the application of key concepts discussed throughout the year.” – Nazy Sakhavarz, Program Director, CWSAP-Earl Haig
Participating artists each received a $100 gift card to a local art store, with a bonus $500 gift card for the grand prize. In addition, Collecdev will bestow a $1,500 scholarship to CWSAP-EH as a thank you for the collaboration.
“This amazing initiative with CWSAP- EH for Nørdic Condos was such a success that we were inspired to do it again. This partnership exemplifies one of our core beliefs – that art has the power to engage the public and enhance the built environment.” – Natascha Pieper, VP of Sales and Marketing, Collecdev.
Collecdev has collaborated in a second art initiative with the Visual Arts Department at Earl Haig, a design collaboration, inspired by blooming roses and romantic floral motifs, that will grace the lobby at our Westwood Gardens community. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, stop by and see the Scandinavian-inspired works on display, framing the site of the future condominium community and providing a beautiful backdrop for the next phase of development.
Nørdic Condos is currently sold out and under construction. In 2020 Nørdic Condos was the Project of the Year winner, recognized by the OHBA Awards of Distinction.
A symbolic ceremony with Bloor Street United Church & CollecdevApril 4, 2022 READ MORE

The relationship between Bloor Street United Church and Collecdev has been built upon mutual respect and a shared vision for a stronger community. This month, that relationship reached another milestone with the ceremonial handover of the church.
Bloor Street United Church has been a cornerstone of the Annex for over 130 years. Now, through a historic collaboration with Collecdev, the site will soon transform into a thriving new community that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable, a community that will enrich the neighbourhood and allow BSUC to continue its great work for the next 100+ years.
On March 23rd, members of the BSUC congregation and members of Collecdev met at the Cielo Presentation Centre to mark the next stage of development. The event included an opening prayer, remarks from both groups, a look ahead at construction and a lively meet-and-greet, a particularly convivial momentthat marked the first time many participants had been face-to-face in over two years, due to the global pandemic.
Honouring both the significance of the event and the spirit of our commitment to social sustainability and public art, Collecdev presented the church with a special edition print of the hand-sketched illustration of Cielo by local artist, “Pen to Papier.” Members of the Design Advisory Committee signed the print, leaving a physical symbol of their lasting impact on the project, a symbol that will be on permanent display once the redevelopment is complete.
The culmination of the event was the symbolic handover of the key from BSUC to Collecdev, a gesture signifying how the church has entrusted the site to our team, confident that we will shepherd it into a new era of prosperity and community. 20 smaller commemorative keys were handed out to the BSUC Trustees, Chair of Council, the Redevelopment Steering Committee and the Relocation Task Group, all of whom have played an integral role in the development, stewarding the entire process on behalf of the church.
The afternoonmarked a significant milestone for everyone in attendance, a symbol not only of the years of hard work and dedication that have led up to this point, but of the generations of inclusiveness, belonging and community that Cielo will come to signify when it is complete.
