Nørdic reaches an exciting milestoneDecember 2, 2022 READ MORE
On November 4th, Collecdev celebrated the roof topping of Nørdic Condos. If you don’t work in the construction industry, chances are you may...
On November 4th, Collecdev celebrated the roof topping of Nørdic Condos.
If you don’t work in the construction industry, chances are you may never have heard of ‘topping off.’ A ‘topping off’ ceremony is a long-standing industry tradition, commemorating the completion of a building’s structure. The ‘topping off’ of the East Building at Nørdic marks an important moment in the development of the Scandinavian-inspired community and puts residents one step closer to their spectacular new home.
To commemorate the occasion, Collecdev gathered with over 100 trade partners, to celebrate this milestone. In appreciation, our trade partners enjoyed a hot Italian lunch and received Collecdev branded swag.
“Typically a topping off is held at the completion of the building structure” said Sam Pidlubny, the Project Manager for Nørdic. “At that point, many of the trades have completed their work and are no longer on site, so we decided to celebrate with the topping off of the first building, at a time where all construction trades are present and working hard to bring this exciting project to life.”
Let’s take a look at the progress to date:
- Construction of the Geothermal Mechanical room is now complete. This geothermal system will reduce carbon emissions by 70%, consume 40% less energy than a traditional HVAC system, save over 5 million litres of water per year and offer predictable maintenance fees for residents.
- Building A East formwork is complete.
- Building A West formwork is complete to the 9th floor.
Mechanical & Electrical
- Mechanical, electrical and HVAC system installation is now above grade for both Building A and Building B.
- Exterior envelope stud-panels and windows are complete in Building B and underway for Building A.
What comes next?
The building enclosure for the East Building is scheduled for completion in Spring 2023, pushing Nørdic toward its finished vision of a crisp white geometric façade, featuring spacious balconies and terraces that provide an organic connection to the outdoors. Our construction team is committed to building value and promoting excellence, and will be there every step of the way, ensuring the highest quality and service. These best-in-class tradespeople and workers are instrumental in building balanced and complete communities, that reflect the way people truly want to live.
Stay tuned for more construction updates!
Christmas spirits in bloom in Bloor-YorkvilleNovember 28, 2022 READ MORE
It should come as no surprise that Toronto’s most fashionable neighbourhood knows a thing or two about how to deck the halls in style, and this year is no exception. Fleurs de Villes is taking Christmas spirit to a whole new level with NOËL Bloor-Yorkville, a festive floral trail just in time for the holiday season.
From December 7-11, visitors can stroll along a spectacular trail of brilliant installations, created by Toronto’s favourite florists – over 30 pieces in total, including the famous floral mannequins, adorned in breathtaking attire trimmed in holly and pine.
The festive trail begins in the lobby of the W Hotel and unfurls to the west, with stops at Holt Renfrew, Eataly, the Park Hyatt and the Hazelton Hotel, to name a few, all just steps from Cielo, Collecdev’s spectacular community rising up at 300 Bloor Street West.
NOËL Bloor-Yorkville is just one of the incredible activities that populate a year-round calendar of events in the neighbourhood. Aside from an impressive array of upscale market eateries, amazing restaurants and designer boutiques, the area around Cielo is also home to public art installations, celebrity motor rallies, and Summer Music in the Park.
The western half of Bloor Street West offers a completely different vibe – relaxed, bohemian, cool, and decidedly unique. Then of course there’s the Annex, Harbord Village and the lush green campus at UofT. All in all, Cielo offers a truly exceptional opportunity to live in an architectural landmark, with breathtaking views, fabulous amenities and a rare Bloor Street address in Toronto’s most revered community. It’s no wonder it’s over 90% sold out.
It’s not too late to put a Cielo residence on your wish list! Contact a member of our sales team today and don’t miss the opportunity to capture an uncommon luxury this holiday season.
By appointment only.

Collecdev VP, Fernando Valenzuela, presenting the future of the industry at The Buildings ShowNovember 14, 2022 READ MORE
For 34 years, The Buildings Show has been one of the most anticipated building events of the year, the place where industry insiders connect over expert led-seminars, informative panels and thought-provoking roundtables. And this year, the show will feature a special guest – Collecdev’s Vice-President of Development, Fernando Valenzuela.
On November 30th, Fernando, in collaboration with Nerva and MCW Consultants, will present The Importance and Benefits of Airtight Building Envelopes, a forward-thinking approach to construction that we’ve already incorporated into Collecdev communities, with great benefit to homeowners and to the environment.
The Benefits of an Airtight Envelope
For most of us, “airtightness” is not a term that comes up often when discussing the merits of a building, but for industry experts, air infiltration (i.e. the unintentional introduction of outside air into a building, typically through gaps in the building envelope and through the use of doors for entry and exit) is actually a huge factor in energy efficiency, accounting for up to 30% or more of a building’s heating and cooling costs, and leading to problems with moisture, noise, dust, pollutants, insects, and rodents. Leaky buildings have a negative impact on sustainability, comfort and wellbeing. Improving the construction of the building envelope, not only leads to healthier communities and a smaller environmental footprint, but is also essential for meeting the mandatory energy targets outlined in TEDI (Thermal Energy Demand Intensity), the standard set by the City of Toronto.
Those are just some of the concerns that come under Fernando’s purview in his role as VP, Development and the presentation will address these issues, as well as methods to achieve airtightness, and an overview of Canada’s first airtight multi-residential building, a pilot project by Collecdev in Wilson Heights with the goal of achieving a ground-breaking 60%+ reduction in total air leakage.
Leading the charge in airtight construction – and a co-presenter of the November 30th session – is Nerva Energy, an energy consulting firm that shares Collecdev’s vision to leverage advanced building technologies to create high-performance communities that promote a healthier planet. The presentation isn’t the first time Collecdev will collaborate with the award-winning firm – we were also the first major developer in Canada to roll out Nerva’s Suite Seal technology in a multi-unit residential building as part of our Tippett community in Wilson Heights, a first in the country.
Suite Seal not only significantly lowers energy consumption for a building, resulting in operational savings, environmental benefits, and optimized HVAC function, but also improves air quality and reduces the spread of airborne disease. The advanced technology delivers a tighter building envelope thanks to an acrylic sealant called Aero Barrier that can seal gaps as big as ½” in diameter, and as small as a hair follicle, resulting in big benefits like:
- 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
The panel will be rounded out by MCW Consulting, a group of industry-leading engineering companies providing expertise in engineering consulting, energy management and engineering-inspired development services, all with the goal of leveraging both new and proven technologies to provide today’s buildings with mechanical and electrical solutions that make them not only enjoyable to inhabit, but that deliver tangible social and economic benefits to the people who interact with these spaces every day.
“I am immensely proud to be a part of the team leading this session, along with Nerva and MCW,” says Fernando. “Both companies share the Collecdev vision of building long-lasting, future-forward, balanced and complete urban communities that minimize our impact on the planet and, through these discussions, we have the chance to share the forward-thinking technologies that will directly impact the future of the built environment, creating value not only for our homeowners, but for the industry, the community and the planet.”
With over 20 years of global experience developing large multi-residential and commercial/retail properties, and a passion for building communities that leave a fainter footprint on the environment, Fernando is uniquely equipped for the role of Vice President of Development at Collecdev. Backed by a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, a master’s degree in finance, Project Manager certification by the Project Management Institute, and a LEED® Green Associate credential through the Green Building Certification Institute, he is proof that performance and sustainability are not mutually exclusive, but together, can lay the foundation for future-proofed communities that benefit everyone.
The Importance and Benefits of Airtight Building Envelopes will be held Wednesday, November 30th, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM as part of The Buildings Show. Visit the TBS site for more detail.
Yorkdale Mall could get even busier as another big development revealed across the streetNovember 9, 2022 READ MORE

More condos may soon overlook Yorkdale Shopping Centre as a highrise developer is partnering with a landowner on a new proposal for three residential buildings directly across the street from Canada’s most-profitable mall.
Recently, Collecdev submitted a development application to the City of Toronto to build two 29-storey towers and a nine-storey mid-rise at 3400 Dufferin St. and 8 Jane Osler Blvd., opposite Yorkdale mall to the east and just south of Highway 401 in an area that has become a hotbed of development activity.
For the site, currently occupied by the Midtown Honda dealership and a single-family home, the developer envisions a total of 834 condo units across the three buildings. A couple of the structures — one of the towers as well as the mid-rise building — would feature retail space for a combined 1,365 square metres of floor area.
The project is a joint venture between Collecdev and the landowners (listed as Dufferin-401 Properties Limited in planning documents), who would share in the profits from the eventual condo sales. The two parties began discussions in March about the possibility of joining forces, said Neil Rodgers, president of Collecdev.
Collecdev’s application is part of an onrush of under-review and already-approved proposals for the area. “The Dufferin, 401 and Yorkdale area will look very, very different in the future,” Rodgers said. “That whole Dufferin corridor is emerging as a high-density urban neighbourhood.”
The developer isn’t a stranger to the neighbourhood. Collecdev has two projects under construction nearby, including Nordic Condos, a 12-storey Scandinavian-inspired condo building at 530 Wilson Rd., and the 13-storey Tretti Condos at 30 Tippett Rd.
From smaller-scale luxury developments, such as the application Dash Developments tabled last month for a 10-storey condo at 3309–3317 Dufferin St. to Oxford Property’s plans to build a humongous, 19-tower community right on Yorkdale mall’s surface parking lot, proposals of all sizes are taking shape in the neighbourhood.
Earlier this year, the Ontario Land Tribunal, the provincial body that adjudicates planning disputes, also approved a tri-tower rental complex with building heights ranging from 23 to 29 storeys at 3400 Dufferin St., the land immediately to the north of the site that Collecdev has plans for.
Rodgers said sustainability is one of his project’s key components, so, like several others in Collecdev’s portfolio, the development would rely on a geothermal system for heating and cooling units. The condo complex would also feature green roofs and 632 bicycle parking spaces compared to 375 spots for cars.
Architecturally, Collecdev hopes the project stands out by avoiding a boxy, glass look in favour of an airy, white-panelled exterior design by project architects gh3*.
“Simple-yet-cool architecture, I think, will make this building different than some of our competitors,” Rodgers added. “It’s simple, from my perspective, and elegant.”
The development’s 3,276 square metres of amenities are still on the drawing board.
“It’s early days. We have not programmed specifics,” said Rodgers. However, he said, the project is likely to include space to work out, theatre and party rooms and pet-washing stations. It may provide outdoor barbecue and patio areas, too.
“The sky is the limit in terms of what we can animate and curate the space to be,” Rodgers said. “It’s something we will refine as we get to the sales and launch.”
As for when that might be, the project launch could be 24 to 30 months away. If Collecdev can get zoning approvals in place by then, Rodgers suggested, “That would be fantastic.”

Here’s what our team has to say about our new officeOctober 31, 2022 READ MORE
By now you may have heard that we’ve officially...
By now you may have heard that we’ve officially moved into our new space at 365 Bloor Street East, a 14,000 square foot state-of-the-art head office full of welcoming, neuro diverse spaces; industrial-inspired décor; and places to meet, collaborate and innovate, all designed by one of Canada’s leading interior design studios, Figure3. Just like with our communities, the ultimate testament to the space comes from the people who inhabit it, so we went straight to the source. Here’s what our team had to say.
Neil Rodgers, President
“Besides a fantastic location on Bloor Street, I’m really impressed by the design aesthetic of our new office space. The open-concept layout makes it easy to see colleagues and engage with the team, and we have a great kitchen where I make my breakfast every morning. We wanted a space that respected our key pillars and Figure3 really nailed our vision.”
Katrina Pieper, Director, Sales and Marketing
“From the large screens in the boardroom that let us put on full multi-media presentations, to the workspaces that are equipped with the latest hardware, software and technology features, the new office feels like a leap into the future. Things like convenient charging stations are a small detail, but one that signifies an environment that feels truly designed for today’s modern workplace.”
Simona Nyagolova, Sales and Marketing Coordinator
“My favourite part of the new office is the greenery, there are so many plants everywhere! Also, the fully-functioning kitchen feels like a home away from home during the day.”
Anna Sorokin, Development Manager
“The new office is such a beautiful and calming space with lots of natural light. I love all the meeting rooms, especially the innovation room, and of course, the kitchen – the spacious design allows everyone to get together to touch base in a more informal setting.”
Rooie Ash, Manager, Preconstruction
“The overall design of the new office is amazing. There are great amenities and beautiful views. In our previous office the construction team was on a separate floor and here I really like seeing the team sharing one collective space, it feels more collaborative.”
Ysobel Ardiente, Design Manager
“I love the open-concept layout, it’s very conducive for collaboration. There are places to meet in small or large groups and multiple places to work like our touchdown zones, the innovation room with soft seating, or the more formal boardroom design. There’s also lots of natural light which helps boost my mood and keep me feeling productive.”
Stephanie Bowen, Administrative Assistant
“I bet everyone’s saying this, but the kitchen is the best spot in the office. It’s a great meeting place when you need a break, plus the Nespresso machine makes an amazing coffee. Actually, the whole office is pretty spectacular – the design really brings everyone together to inspire creativity and collaboration.”
Rhea Boysie, Administrative Assistant
“I love the windows in our new office, they make the whole space feel bright and airy and they let in a lot of natural light which I’ve noticed brings more energy to the team. But my favourite room is the new kitchen, it’s where everyone gathers and it’s a great spot for impromptu meetings and spontaneous ideas.”
Our new HQ is located at 365 Bloor Street East.
