Introducing a contemporary amalgam of clean lines and neutral palettes to 500 Wilson Avenue, Nørdic Condos is conveniently located in a mature neighbourhood serviced by a number of key transportation routes. The property sits next to Wilson subway station, Allen Road and Highway 401, with valued community amenities like Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Downsview Park, and York University in close proximity. Recent and upcoming transit expansions, including the completed Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension and the future Finch West LRT and Eglinton Crosstown, will provide key links to the rest of Toronto and beyond.
The arresting architecture of Nørdic Condos employs a crisp white facade emphasized by spacious balconies, terraces, and double-glazed windows, accentuating the building’s ingrained connection to the outdoors. On the north side of the structure, a stepped design has been implemented to create a cascading series of outdoor spaces where residents can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while interacting with their neighbours. An extension of the home, three communal courtyards offer additional spaces to socialize and enjoy the outdoors.
Nørdic Condos thinks globally and acts locally by including a geothermal heating and cooling system to reduce the building’s carbon footprint, lower greenhouse gas emissions, reduce annual energy costs, and save over five million litres of water every year.
An expansive amenities package has been carefully crafted to meet the wants and needs of residents, with a state-of-the-art fitness centre, calisthenics courtyard, outdoor pet relief area and indoor washing zone, outdoor kids play area, and landscaped outdoor lounges and barbecue zones all included in the full-service program.
Nørdic also understands the importance of housing inclusivity and accessibility. A number of the 437 condominiums have been allocated to Collecdev H.O.M.E., an affordability initiative that provides payment- and interest-free down payment assistance loans to first-time homebuyers. Fulfilling the pressing need for affordable housing while addressing long-term plans for growth in the region, Nørdic Condos increases both the volume and type of housing in the neighbourhood, contributing towards the proliferation of a complete community driven by a people-oriented approach.
Sustainability essentially aims for ecological balance.
Nørdic residents are always connected – connected to the city, connected to transit, connected to everything, 24 hours a day. Discover Wilson Heights immediately outside your front door, a vibrant community inspired by European cities where architectural diversity, urban gathering spaces, and pedestrian-centric infrastructure combine to encourage interaction with neighbours and friends.

Nørdic prepares for Pre-Delivery InspectionsJanuary 22, 2024 READ MORE
It’s 2024, which means a new year, new resolutions, and new milestones at Nørdic, where Pre-Delivery Inspections are set to begin this Spring. To get homeowners ready, we’ve put together this handy post on PDIs, with helpful details on what to expect and how to prepare, ensuring the process will be seamless much like the design of Nørdic itself –focus on what matters, and live a happier, healthier life.
What is a PDI?
The Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) marks a huge milestone in the home ownership process – it’s your first chance to see your finished new home in real life and the final step before move-in day. All new homes enrolled with Tarion – and therefore protected by the Tarion warranty – must undergo a PDI.
Our trusted third-party PDI company, Fortune PDI, will reach out to schedule your appointment, typically 1-2 weeks before your occupancy date. At the appointment, not only will you get to see the upgrades you selected and review the quality of the finished work, but you’ll also learn about your new home and all its operating systems (plumbing, heating, ventilation, electrical, etc.), so that you’ll be familiar with how everything works by the time you move in.
How do I prepare for my PDI?
In preparation for your PDI, there are some helpful documents to review, including the Tarion PDI Checklist and the special feature, the Pre-Delivery Inspection, both of which will help provide an overview of the process.
Who can attend my PDI?
PDIs are conducted in person and onsite. During your appointment it’s important that you’re free to focus on the inspection of your new home, reviewing any maintenance and operational instructions, and noting if anything is missing, damaged or incomplete. For that reason, we strongly recommend that only the purchasers named on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) should attend.
If you’re unable to attend, you can assign a designate to attend on your behalf. Simply complete the Designate Form and submit it to our Customer Care team prior to your PDI. You can also request that a member of the development team complete the inspection on your behalf. In that case, a copy of the PDI will be sent to you along with a video of your suite inspection. For safety reasons, no minors or pets are allowed on site.
What should I bring to the PDI?
While your Collecdev-Markee Customer Care representative will provide all of the necessary paperwork on the day of the PDI, some people find it helpful to bring a copy of the Agreement of Purchase and Sale and a list of upgrades for reference. Since the site is still under construction, be sure to dress appropriately with close-toed footwear (and no heels for your safety). And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team at email@example.com. We’re always here to help.
What is the result of my PDI?
At the end of your PDI you should come away with five things: a complete list of items that require further attention; an understanding of how to use and maintain the key systems of your home; your warranty certificate indicating your home’s enrolment number and warranty start date; any relevant user manuals and other warranty documents; contact information and next steps.
Committed to quality and community.
The PDI is just one more step in our mission to deliver uncompromising standards of quality and the superior homeowner experience that has become a signature of Collecdev-Markee communities across the city. Our Customer Care Team will be with you every step of the way, bringing to life our collective vision for balanced and complete communities that reflect the way people truly want to live.
For questions about the Nørdic PDI, or about any of our extraordinary communities, contact a member of our customer care team at 416.640.6000 x1.
Nørdic takes shape in Wilson HeightsNovember 24, 2023 READ MORE
If you’ve driven through Wilson Heights recently, you may have noticed an exciting new addition to the neighbourhood, as Nørdic continues to evolve from an architectural vision to an impressive reality. The contemporary 12-storey building now sits comfortably within the context of the surrounding community, the crisp duotone façade providing a fresh counterpoint to the residential streetscape.
With the exterior nearly complete, the focus has moved inside, where interior spaces, including the state-of-the-art fitness centre, and stunning lobby, are coming to life.
Here’s a look at the latest progress:
- Installation of the exterior envelope panels and glazing is nearly complete across the entire building, with the exception of a small number of suites that continue to act as key ingress points for hoisting and transporting materials, equipment, and machinery to the upper levels.
- Installation of the mechanical and electrical penthouse systems is currently in progress.
- Work on the interior building finishes is advancing rapidly, and framing and rough-in work has commenced for the interior amenity spaces.
- Landscaping activities are in full swing, creating a canopy of greenery with new flowers, plants, shrubs, and 50 new trees, including tall growth American Hornbeam and Freeman Maples.
Each of these elements plays an important role not only in the progress of construction, but in progress toward creating a human-centred community, one that emphasizes health and wellbeing for residents and guests. For example, the balconies and terraces that dot the façade will soon provide a direct connection to nature and improved access to sunlight and fresh air. Amenities, currently under construction, will become spaces for neighbours to engage, interact, and socialize. Landscaping is setting the scene for nearly 11,000 square feet of outdoor space that can help reduce stress, boost creativity, and increase happiness. And the mechanical and electrical systems will work in harmony with the innovative geothermal heating and cooling system that uses about 40% less energy than a traditional HVAC system, and produces 70% less greenhouse gas, saving over 5 million litres of water every year.
With each new construction milestone, the key elements of Nørdic – extensive green space, thoughtfully designed amenities, innovative architecture, and integrated connectivity to everything around – are creating synergies that result in the perfect place to call home.
Stay tuned for more construction updates!

Italy, Canada, Sweden, Spain, New Zealand, Denmark, France, USA. No, it’s not the roster of attendees for the next G20 summit, rather, it’s the impressive international background of the latest powerhouse brands announced at Yorkdale. Ten more of the world’s most exciting names in fashion, athletics, beauty and fragrance are opening their doors at Canada’s leading retail destination including Emporio Armani, Ganni, Fendi, Acne Studio, Alo Yoga, Allbirds, Diptyque, and Mejuri.
Yorkdale is no stranger to headline-making retail. In the last two decades, Oxford Properties has invested over $500 million to fund five separate expansions. The internationally-renowned shopping centre boasts the densest clustering of luxury brands in Canada, and, in 2021, added a 25,000 square foot Nike flagship store – the largest Nike store in Canada – as well as Canada’s first Alexander McQueen and Celine boutiques. Many other stores, including Cartier, Bulgari, David Yurman, OVO, Tory Burch, Burberry, and Browns, are also getting a facelift with renovations or relocations to larger spaces in the mall, a great sign for strong continued growth.
With a constantly-expanding footprint, the 18 million annual visitors may need Yorkdale’s interactive site map to navigate the retail labyrinth, but for neighbourhood residents, like those at TRETTI and Nørdic, Yorkdale’s spacious retail halls will start to feel like a second home – the perfect place to pop in and pick up a gift, shop a new look, meet friends for lunch, or simply get in your 10,000 steps, strolling through 2 million square feet, surrounded by the world’s most beloved brands.

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.
