Futuristic Condo Towers To Replace Dreary Toronto Office ComplexNovember 15, 2021 READ MORE
Like much of the city, Toronto's
Like much of the city, Toronto’s car-dependent inner suburbs are undergoing a transformation fuelled by an insatiable demand for new condo and rental units. These suburban tower proposals are getting bolder as of late, with ambitious designs that would be right at home in the downtown core.
Not necessarily an area one would associate with density, what is currently a collection of nondescript business parks southwest of the Victoria Park and Sheppard intersection is due to be redeveloped with several multi-tower communities that will give this pocket of the ‘burbs a distinct identity.
One example of a large-scale development now approaching reality in this changing area of the city is a plan from developer Collecdev to bring a multi-tower community to the west side of Victoria Park at Consumers Road, mid-way between Sheppard and Highway 401.
The developer hopes to redefine the 2450 Victoria Park site with a group of futuristic, glittering towers designed by architects gh3. Rounded tower corners and facades with alternating balcony screens would give these towers a distinctly urban look amongst their suburban surroundings.
A north block would feature 28- and 20-storey towers inclusive of a shared six-storey podium. To the south, plans call for a 24-storey tower and an 11-storey mid-rise, the latter to feature a 62-space child-care facility.
Residents of the complex’s proposed 925 condo units and 104 rentals, tenants of over its over 5,000 square feet of office space, and the surrounding community would all be treated to new outdoor spaces and a network of walkways tying the buildings together.
This would include privately-owned public space, as well as a public park contribution of 2,850 square metres.
While the renderings offer up some great new eye candy, plans to build a group of towers on this site have been brewing for close to a decade now.
A revised proposal landed at City Hall just over four years ago, though, with city planners inundated with applications to process, the proposal fell by the wayside, opening the door for the developer to appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (since renamed the Ontario Land Tribunal).
That appeal led to negotiations that resulted in a conditional approval of the project in November 2020, which has shaped the latest plans submitted this past October.

Move In Day At Westwood Gardens – What To ExpectNovember 11, 2021 READ MORE
With Westwood Gardens nearly complete, it’s now time to tackle the logistics of moving into your new home. If you missed our post on the PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) you can check it out here. The next exciting step? Occupancy and move-in.
What’s the difference between my occupancy date and my move-in date?
Let’s start with some basic terminology. Your occupancy date marks the day that you receive your keys, and the day your Tarion warranty period begins. Your move-in date is the day you physically move into your new home.
Why are these not the same thing?
The reason these two dates are often different is because generally your closing will take place in the afternoon, but the logistics of elevator bookings and move-ins are usually best scheduled with an early start. Of course, once your keys are in hand, the suite is yours, so if you have a suitcase, a few small boxes of personal items, if you want to go visit your new home, or mark the occasion with take-out on a picnic blanket on the floor, you definitely can, but for your official move-in – the day your furniture arrives and the day you get elbow-deep in boxes and big items – you’ll be able to book the elevator starting the day after occupancy.
How do I book the elevator?
The ongoing management of Westwood Gardens is in the expert hands of Melbourne Property Management, a Toronto-based firm with over 100 years of combined industry experience. To book the elevator just give them a call at 416.546.2126 x157 and they’ll help you gather all the necessary forms and information.
- A security deposit cheque
- A completed Resident Information Form
- Proof of insurance
- A copy of your completed Powerstream utility enrollment form
- If your unit is leased, you’ll also need a copy of the lease
Please remember that an elevator booking is necessary any time you have a large delivery that will require the use of the loading bay and the elevators.
What can I expect on move-in day?
One of the reasons for elevator booking is to ensure sufficient space in the loading bay for your moving truck and to make sure no vehicles are blocking the roadways or fire routes – with a location directly on Yonge Street this is particularly important. Upon arrival, check in with the concierge, they will be available for any questions. When your move-in is complete, remember to break down any large boxes and take them to the garbage / recycling room.
Together, Collecdev and Melbourne Property Management have handled tens of thousands of move-ins, so by following the procedures laid out, what you can expect is a smooth and seamless experience getting into your new home.
What will the building be like when I move in?
Please remember that, during interim occupancy, some parts of the building may still be under construction. That means that paint, wallpaper and carpets in common areas may not yet be completed as a way of protecting the building elements until the bulk of move-ins have taken place. There may be protective coverings in the elevator cabs and ongoing construction of the exterior or of the amenity spaces.
Rest assured, residents, workers and trade partners all have the same goal – to ensure a quick and successful completion of the building, so please be patient and if you have any questions, contact a member of our customer care team, we’re always here to help.
The extraordinary residential community of Westwood Gardens is ready to welcome you home. Discover a completely connected lifestyle with inspiring amenities and exceptional design, all in the heart of Richmond Hill.

Nørdic Condos Wins Best Advertising Campaign at 2021 BILD AwardsNovember 8, 2021 READ MORE
Last month, after a long, pandemic-induced pause, the industry gathered in person once again to celebrate the best and brightest projects of the last twelve months at the 41st annual BILD Awards. Nørdic Condos was a standout success, winning the prestigious Best Advertising Campaign, Paid Media Pinnacle Award, in recognition of the project’s clever strategy to bring the Scandinavian-inspired community to life online and in print.
A combination of old and new media painted a compelling story for the community, highlighting Nørdic’s northern European lifestyle that makes good design and good living accessible to all. Print and digital programs covered Nørdic’s impressive array of features including timeless architecture that acts as the backdrop to suites with multi-functional design; engaging amenities that offer a place to socialize, collaborate, and interact; abundant outdoor spaces that create daily opportunities to interact with nature; incomparable access to transit that keeps residents connected to everywhere they want to go; and sustainable building systems that reduce the carbon footprint and provide predictable costs and long-term value.
“Nørdic is a truly complete community,” says Natascha Pieper, Collecdev’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “Our digital and print advertising campaigns told the story of that community, helping viewers recognize the unique nature of a development that responds to the way people really want to live. It’s a model for the future of the industry and we are extremely proud that it resonated not only with the judges, but with our homeowners.”
Nørdic’s powerful campaign impressed the panel of expert judges from across North America, landing it among the esteemed company of the evening’s winners in marketing, architecture, sales, planning, design, and city building. It’s the latest project to join Collecdev’s portfolio of award-winning communities, communities that push the boundaries of innovation and development to create a positive impact on people, places, and the planet.
Welcome Home: Pre-Delivery Inspections Begin At Westwood GardensOctober 26, 2021 READ MORE

At Collecdev we’re committed to building complete communities with uncompromising standards of quality, quality that is now on display at Westwood Gardens. Throughout this next milestone we continue to nurture the strong customer relationships that sustain vibrant, thriving communities. Our Customer Care Team is always ready, willing to assist with inspired and extraordinary service at every step. From the date of purchase, to suite décor, to move-in day and beyond, you can count on Collecdev to be there. Our mission is to ensure your home delivers on the promise of a superior homeowner experience with meticulous attention to detail. The PDI is an opportunity to experience that superior quality in real life.
What is a PDI?
The Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) is your first chance to see your finished new home. In addition to getting acquainted with the space and its operating systems (plumbing, heating, ventilation, electrical, etc.), it’s also your chance to learn about home maintenance, review any upgrades you’ve selected and to note any missing, damaged or incomplete work. All new homes are enrolled with Tarion – and therefore protected by the Tarion Home Warranty Program- and as a requirement for Vendors, a PDI must be performed in advance of occupancy. It’s an important step in quality control to ensure that the reality of your new home delivers on what was promised.
How do I prepare for my PDI?
Take some time to review the Tarion PDI Checklist or the special feature, Getting Ready for the Pre-Delivery Inspectionto get an understanding of the process. Our third-party PDI company – Fortune PDI, will reach out to schedule your appointment, typically 1-2 weeks before your occupancy date.
Who can attend my PDI?
PDIs are conducted in person and onsite. Your focus during the inspection should be on your new home and reviewing any maintenance and operational instructions provided by your customer care representative; for that reason, only the purchasers named on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) should attend.
If you’re unable to attend, a designate can be assigned to attend on your behalf. Complete the Designate Form and submit it to our Customer Care department prior to your PDI. There are cases when purchasers prefer that a member of the development team complete the inspection on their behalf. In those cases, a copy of the PDI will be sent to you along with a video of your suite inspection. In general, no minors or pets are allowed on site.
What should I bring to the PDI?
Though it’s not necessary, you may find it helpful to have a copy of your Agreement of Purchase and Sale and a list of your upgrades. Since the site is still under construction, be sure to dress appropriately, including close-toed footwear without heels. Your Collecdev Customer Care representative will provide all of the necessary paperwork on the day of the PDI, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touchwith our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always here to help.
At Collecdev, our team is working hard to realize a collective vision for a brighter future and to elevate your experience of everyday life. The result is a human-centred, multi-layered approach, now ready to welcome you home at Westwood Gardens.
For questions about the Westwood Gardens PDI or about any of our extraordinary communities, contact a member of our customer care team at 416.640.6000 x1.

We’re thrilled to announce that Collecdev has made the list as one of the Globe & Mail’s Top Growing Companies in 2021, landing among the “448 most daring businesses in the country,” the trendsetters and innovators who have managed to grow in these unprecedented times.
With 3-year revenue growth topping 1,700%, Collecdev came in at #35, rising to the top of an impressive pool of for-profit, Canadian-run and headquartered, independent businesses. It’s an amazing honour and proof that our mission – to build complete and sustainable communities, inclusive and accessible places that give people a sense of belonging – is resonating in the competitive Toronto real estate market.
For years, studies have shown that companies that practice Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) with the aim of having a positive long-term impact on people, planet and business performance, generally also see positive returns. At Collecdev, we’ve always believed that, so we built a collective conscientiousness for social and environmental dynamics directly into our DNA, in the three defining pillars of our business model.
Building communities that anticipate the future while balancing today’s needs is the cornerstone of Social Sustainability. It entails a constantly evolving outlook on spaces that integrate diverse programmatic elements, provoking new ideas for healthy, balanced environments designed to enrich society as a whole. Collecdev communities include services and facilities that create a thriving sense of place, and housing initiatives that ensure good living is accessible to all.
Understanding the wants and needs of our homeowners is essential to creating the ultimate living experience. We apply a diligent approach and give careful consideration to both the existing contexts in which we build, and to the intimate living spaces in the communities we create. Striking a balance between form and function is our ultimate goal. The result is a human-centred, multi-layered design that welcomes families home.
At Collecdev we acknowledge an inherent responsibility over the impact of our communities on the natural and built environment. The unprecedented rate of urbanization demands a forward-thinking approach to build long lasting balanced urban landscapes. Through the implementation of advanced building technologies and alternative energy sources, we reduce the carbon footprint of our communities and ensure a cleaner, brighter future.
This win reinforces our commitment and our drive to creating stronger communities. Thank you to the Globe & Mail, but most importantly, thank you to our partners who believe in us, our peers who look to us for leadership, and to our homeowners, who recognize that Collecdev communities are the perfect backdrop for stronger connection, healthier living and greater wellbeing for all.
