Architect gh3*
Status Pre-Construction
Nørdic Condos ushers in a novel lifestyle in the evolving Tippett Regeneration Area, a neighbourhood undergoing a transformation supported by all three levels of government and progressive planning principles. The 12-storey development embraces the Scandinavian philosophy of Friluftsliv, which recognizes the relationship between human well-being and the rejuvenative forces of nature.

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 429 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.

Sustainable Features

Sustainable architecture design is environmentally conscious, energy-saving, and utilizes responsive and renewable materials and systems. Collecdev realizes that ecological and environmental concerns have expanded beyond the issue of the consumption of non-renewable energy sources. Sustainability essentially aims for ecological balance. Collecdev takes a long-term approach, and that means leading the charge when it comes to environmentally-focused development that helps reduce our carbon footprint and ensures a better quality of life. We continually seek innovative new technologies that adapt to environmental demands and changing market conditions. At Nørdic we introduced a geothermal energy system, reducing the environmental impact of urban development while addressing evolving customer needs. We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve and creating distinct communities that promote a better quality of life.
