INVOLVING ALL MEMBERS OF A GROUP AS DISTINCT FROM ITSINDIVIDUALS
Westwood Gardens gives “dog-friendly” a whole new meaningJuly 28, 2022 READ MORE

They say that dog is man’s best friend, but we think that if you ask Milo who his BFF is (besides his forever hoomans, of course), he’d probably point a paw at Nadine Kiriakis, Collecdev’s Customer Care Manager at Westwood Gardens.
From the day Milo and his puppy parents moved in, Nadine has been there, offering advice, support, warm welcomes, and delicious dog treats, always on hand at the concierge desk in the lobby.
“The adjustment to a new home has been a little tough for Milo,” says Nadine, a self-proclaimed dog lover, “but I’m here to help however I can, whether that means stopping to give him some extra cuddles when he’s on his way back from his walk, or occasionally looking after him when his owners need to go out.”
Impromptu dog-sitting isn’t exactly what most people would expect from their new condominium community, but it’s precisely the type of detail that sets Collecdev apart. Our Customer Care Team is always at the ready, willing to assist with inspired and extraordinary service at every step, something that’s making an impression at Westwood Gardens.
“We originally chose Westwood Gardens for its attractive amenity program, sustainable features and excellent location in Richmond Hill,” said one recent resident, “What we didn’t anticipate was the exceptional service that’s continued after our move-in. Collecdev has gone above and beyond to make sure that our experience as homeowners has been as seamless and pleasant as possible.” That’s a promise we make to every member of the family, including the four-legged ones.
The East Tower at Westwood Gardens is now 100% occupied and the West Tower will soon follow, with Pre-Delivery Inspections well underway. Inspiring amenity spaces are already in use, including the Fitness Centre, Basketball Court and the East Tower lobby with original art from our collaboration with local students from the Claude Watson Secondary Arts Program – Earl Haig (CWSAP-EH), and – most importantly to Milo – the Dog Wash.
From the date of purchase, to décor selection, to move-in day and beyond, you can count on Collecdev to be there, delivering on the promise of a superior homeowner experience with meticulous attention to detail (and delicious treats to boot).
Cielo wins Best High-Rise Building DesignJuly 13, 2022 READ MORE
Each year, BILD’s Pinnacle Award for Best High-Rise Building Design is presented to the development that not only makes a significant contribution to its location and to the surrounding neighbourhood, but that provides real value to future residents. We’re thrilled to announce that this year, Cielo Condos has risen above the competition, capturing the hearts of the judges to win this prestigious award.
Our vision for Cielo was not only to create a striking architectural presence that will rise above Bloor Street West and redefine Toronto’s skyline, but to create a true sense of community.
Designed by the renowned architectural firm KPMB, Cielo seamlessly incorporates one of Toronto’s most significant neo-Gothic structures, the revered Bloor Street United Church (BSUC), into a sleek and stylish residential tower.
The iconic architecture artfully blends the historic and the contemporary, creating the “refined modernist” aesthetic that has cemented KPMB’s reputation for design excellence across the globe.
“For us, the key thing is that it fits. It’s a KPMB hallmark. Even if a new building is of a different scale and of a different time, we’re firmly committed that it should complement the older buildings around it. We’re committed to making our neighbours feel good.” – Marianne McKenna, Founding Partner, KPMB
The neighbours around Cielo will no doubt be overjoyed.
The new design reopens the church to Bloor Street with portals, accented with a stunning bronze and glass screen, that open into a new narthex and to the sanctuary beyond. A transparent four-storey glass pavilion replaces the old annex wing of the church and houses both church offices and leasable space, providing an ongoing source of financial support for BSUC’s mission.
Above, the classic point tower glass box is split into two sections that pinwheel around each other on all four sides, creating two vertical strategies: one a grid of punched windows sheathed in bronze metal, and the other, a screen with a window wall behind. It’s this pas de deux between these two striking vertical gestures that gives the building its distinct visual identity, that and the unique hue of the metallic panels that artfully merges browns, purples, pinks and reds to reference the church’s original sandstone, creating a gorgeous kaleidoscopic amalgam that will undoubtedly glow.
“Cielo’s design sets the tone for an incredible lifestyle that fosters diversity, strong relationships and a sense of community, all hallmarks of what we stand for at Collecdev. Not only does it allow an extraordinary centuries-old church to continue to operate and evolve for today’s modern world, it creates new spaces where residents and the community can come together to feel connected, welcomed and engaged, enhancing one of Toronto’s most beloved neighbourhoods.” – Natascha Pieper, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Collecdev
This exciting win for Best High-Rise Building Design goes beyond Cielo’s architecture to endorse a complete community, one that points to a future where development is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable, truly an “uncommon luxury.”
Collecdev’s new Bloor Street headquarters is bringing our pillars to lifeJune 23, 2022 READ MORE
There’s an old expression that says the shoemaker’s children always go barefoot, which comes from a tale about a shoemaker who’s so busy making shoes for his customers, that he has no time to make shoes for his own family. Well we don’t spend our days making shoes, but we do spend them building vibrant, award-winning, complete communities, places that encourage growth and help people thrive. Now, we’ve done it for ourselves – the shoemaker’s children are getting a brand-new pair of shoes, more specifically, we’re saying goodbye to our current home at Yonge and Eglinton, and moving into a spectacular new Collecdev head office at 365 Bloor Street East!
Our Pillars Come to Life
Social sustainability. Experiential design. Environmental stewardship. Day in and day out we live and breathe these three pillars, using them as our guideposts for every community we build. Recently, we put this ethos to work a little closer to home, using these values to build our new headquarters on Bloor.
Working with Figure3, one of Canada’s leading interior design studios, we’ve created a 14,000 square foot home base full of welcoming, neuro diverse spaces; industrial-inspired décor; and places to meet, collaborate and innovate, all wired to power tomorrow’s workplace, today.
Thriving communities require spaces that stimulate conversation and provoke new ideas for healthy, balanced environments. The same is true for a thriving workplace. That’s why our new office features a variety of spaces designed to encourage interaction, including a spacious reception area and a fully-equipped lunchroom where people can gather in one of the intimate booths, or take a seat at the community table for an unexpected exchange.
More formal discussions, presentations or brainstorming sessions can take place in one of the three large boardrooms, the Collaboration Rooms, the Innovation Room where ideas step out of the box, or in the dedicated Construction Meeting Room where our in-house construction team works to ensure that every Collecdev community is built with quality workmanship that results in residences of exceptional value that will last for generations.
Multi-layered and human-centric, our new office space balances form and function to deliver features that help our team perform their best, no matter where they are or how they prefer to work. There are Zoom Rooms and individual Touchdown Pods that enable virtual collaboration and provide both flexible and permanent desk space, reflecting today’s new professional landscape. There’s a Wellness Room, where team members can reflect and recharge. And a Décor Zone where we mix and match the pieces that make up the ultimate living experience. The result is a sliding scale of spaces that provide choices for where team members want to work, maximizing creativity and wellbeing in the process.
Of course, when building our new home, we knew it had to incorporate some of the same advanced building technologies and alternative energy sources we use in our communities. Figure3 worked diligently to ensure that our new offices enjoy abundant natural light, encouraging the same sense of wellbeing found in our residences, and reducing the need for artificial lighting (where lights are necessary, LED lighting reduces our electricity use by about 50% compared to traditional options). Heeding the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle), we’ve opted to bring nearly all our existing office furniture to the new space, and additional features are locally-sourced and Canadian-made for a smaller carbon footprint. Finally, recognizing the detrimental long-term effects of plastic consumption, we’ve installed filtered cold-water faucets and provided every staff member with a Collecdev for Miir water bottle, a premium stainless-steel bottle that aims to minimize environmental impact and maximize product lifespan – a philosophy that aligns perfectly with our own.
A New Home
From the beginning, Collecdev has always stood for collaboration, innovation and progress, and over the last 18 months we’ve witnessed as those tenets have become more important than ever. The working landscape has changed drastically, but thanks to our commitment to future-proofed communities – for work, life, play and every moment in between – we’re ready for it.
We’re making the move this fall. Drop by any time, we’d love to show you around.
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.” 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.
