A blank canvas in Toronto’s Tippett Regeneration Area doubles as the testing ground for a new, complete way of living. TRETTI is a social, environmental and experiential strategy of city-building that adopts the best practices of northern European design. Introducing an eco-friendly, affordable, and human-scaled lifestyle to the heart of Wilson Heights, TRETTI captures the progressive ideals that have made Scandinavian cities some of the happiest on the planet, employing an acute focus on placemaking to create an egalitarian, hyperlocal and truly complete community.
TRETTI exemplifies the development principles envisioned for the Tippett Regeneration Area by CreateTO and the City of Toronto, who drew the blueprint for the integrated and mixed-use community now taking shape. Using functional and smart design to enhance livability, coupled with assets specifically curated to meet the diverse needs of its residents, TRETTI gracefully executes the framework established by these important civic partners.
The contemporary and organic architecture of TRETTI responds to the walkable streetscapes of Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen, translating the characteristics of these rich urban environments into a Toronto context. The result is a carefully crafted living experience supported by multi-functional interiors, ample daylight, and a robust connection to the outdoors via green rooftops and a sprawling eighth floor terrace. At 13 storeys, TRETTI is a modest and human-scaled development punctuated by architectural setbacks and ground-level amenities, which animates the public realm and enhances safety with constant “eyes on the street.” An expansive family-friendly amenity package caters to the desires of all residents, and features a fully equipped fitness studio, yoga space, party room, co-working space, indoor pet-friendly play area, and indoor and outdoor children’s play areas.
Acknowledging that buildings are a contributor to climate change, TRETTI embraces a low-carbon future by employing an innovative geothermal heating and cooling system that will produce 70 percent less greenhouse gases, use about 40 percent less energy than a traditional HVAC system, and save over five million litres of water every year. The geothermal system is complemented by several other green gestures, including two private courtyards sporting drought-tolerant landscapes, absorbing stormwater runoff and reducing clean water irrigation waste by 60 percent. A 29,000-square-foot central park features hardscaping to reduce the urban heat island effect and offers places for rest, recreation, and social interaction. Dedicated bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging stations assist in the proliferation of a strong local multi-modal transportation network. These environmentally conscious features are all part of creating a healthy, holistic community for the greater good, a common understanding of how our individual actions impact the people and the world around us.
Illustrating our commitment to social sustainability, 50 affordable residences at TRETTI will give the gift of home ownership to more Toronto families. The broader Tippett Regeneration Area will receive a total of 200 affordable homes from Collecdev. Complete communities are defined by their inhabitants, who come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Providing a range of housing types ensures the long-term accessibility and prosperity of the neighbourhood, allowing all families to participate and benefit from this trailblazing community. A pioneering force in building affordable housing, Collecdev provided a personal touch to the homebuying process, meeting one-on-one with each prospective purchaser to answer questions and alleviate any concerns. The majority of TRETTI residents already live and rent in the community, and are ready to put down their roots and invest in the security of home ownership.
Our contribution to affordable housing at TRETTI became the genesis of Collecdev H.O.M.E. (Home Ownership Made Easy), a collaboration between all three levels of government. Connecting deserving families with payment- and interest-free down payment assistance loans, the program delivers the dream of home ownership to current renters. Homeowners under the program pay up to 6.5 percent down, representing massive savings compared to the traditional 20 percent down payment required. The loan remains payment- and interest-free as long as the homeowner continues to reside in the condominium. The partnership between governments and Collecdev engendered the City of Toronto’s Open Door Affordable Housing Program, resulting in Collecdev being recognized as a Champion of Affordable Housing.
Located in a mature neighbourhood already defined by relationships to its surroundings, TRETTI features a near-perfect transit score of 98 and convenient access to Wilson, Yorkdale and Sheppard West subway stations, with additional connections to GO Transit, Allen Road, and Highway 401. TRETTI reinforces and heightens the best characteristics of the neighbourhood, serving as the linchpin of a vibrant, forward-thinking, mixed-use community with new public roads, pedestrian and cycling connections, park spaces, and neighbourhood amenities. TRETTI represents the best of both worlds—a multi-layered lifestyle catered to the individual but fostered by social connectedness—a complete community espousing distinctly Scandanavian design with a familiar Toronto address.
Sustainability essentially aims for ecological balance.
NeighbourhoodTRETTI is truly the best of all worlds – Scandinavian inspired, Toronto based, in the heart of Wilson Heights, near Yorkdale, and linked to TTC subway. Live in a charming community bursting with local businesses, family-friendly outdoors, and urban amenities that keep you connected to anything and everything.

5 ways to celebrate the holidays at TRETTIDecember 7, 2023 READ MORE

Set out a plate of cookies for Sinterklass and top up your mulled wine, because the holidays are almost here, and at TRETTI, there are myriad ways to celebrate.
In Sweden, celebrations begin on Christmas Eve, or Julafton, with a traditional buffet smörgåsbord and a Christmas gnome who lives in the forest and hands out gifts. In Denmark, children decorate the tree, and each household prepares a traditional cinnamon rice pudding called grod. In Norway, last minute shopping is de rigeur as people rush home for lutefisk (a cod dish) and glogg (mulled wine). At TRETTI, a complete community welcoming a broad range of residents, anything goes. Here are five ways to celebrate this holiday season at the Scandinavian-inspired residence in the heart of Wilson Heights.
Gather Santa’s little helpers in the children’s play area.
Gather up the youngest elves and all of Santa’s little helpers and host an afternoon of holiday fun in the children’s play area. The sun-filled space is the perfect spot to maximize daylight hours, reading Christmas classics in the reading nook, or decorating the indoor tree sculptures. When the sun is out, bundle everyone up and head to the outdoor playscape where the little ones can chase reindeer on the rubbery, kid-friendly, rolling hills.
Break bread with your nearest and dearest in the party room.
The holidays are all about spending time with loved ones, and the party rooms re the perfect spot to host them all. Cuddle up on the couch and kick off a holiday movie marathon with Elf, Home Alone, and It’s a Wonderful Life on repeat on the big screen. Sip eggnog next to the fire. Or sit down for a meal at a dining table that seats up to 8 or 10.
Help friends beat holiday stress in the fitness studio.
So much of the holidays focuses on food and drink, and, while that may be delicious (and we love shortbread as much as the next guy), sometimes it’s fun to mix things up. Consider inviting a group of friends for a stress-busting session in the high-performance fitness studio or a relaxing stretch in the sun-filled yoga room. A savasana is a welcome follow-up to a marathon holiday shopping run.
Let your fur babies in on the fun in the pet-centric amenity space.
As anyone who has a pet will understand, the holidays aren’t just for humans. Give your four-legged family members their own celebration in TRETTI’s pet-centric amenity space where they can play with their furry friends and go full zoomies on the artificial turf.
Celebrate with your colleagues and collaborators in the co-working space.
The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without some professionally mandated festivities, but freelancers and modern professionals who work from home don’t have to miss out on all the fun. Hop in a private alcove in the co-working space and host an online Zoom or a Teams event. The lightning-fast Wi-Fi will ensure your connection is crystal clear, so no one will miss a second of your Rudolph impression.
Scandinavian-inspired, and designed for the way people really live, TRETTI has the spaces and programming to support today’s modern lifestyles, throughout the holidays and all year long.

TRETTI keeps residents connectedOctober 5, 2023 READ MORE
Exciting news! TRETTI’s direct pathway to Wilson Subway Station is now complete. Running along the western façade of the building, tucked between expansive glazing and a leafy, tree-lined landscape, the pedestrian promenade connects residents directly to Wilson Subway Station. From there, it’s 2 minutes to Yorkdale Shopping Centre, 4 minutes to GO Transit, 11 minutes to York University, 16 minutes to the University of Toronto, and 24 minutes to Union Station – a full slate of the city’s most important intersectional hubs, all within 30 minutes or less.
This is the kind of connectivity we integrate into every Collecdev community, supporting our commitment to Experiential Design, building multi-layered, human-centred, future-proofed environments that respond to the way people really want to live.
The direct subway connection is just one of several elements that put TRETTI residents in a prime position to enjoy high-quality modern urban living. There’s also the charming neighbourhood of Wilson Heights with its family-friendly parks, local delis, and classic cafes. The area includes two lush greenbelts; 11 acres of grass and play space at Clanton Park; Balmoral Park, with tennis courts and a splash pad; Earl Bales Park, with some of the only ski slopes in the city; Scotiabank Pond, home to four NHL-sized ice rinks; and Downsview Park, with concerts, sports, and activities twelve months a year. Kitty-corner from home, Yorkdale Shopping Centre offers up 2-million square feet of best-in-class retail across 270 stores including Burberry, Cartier, Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Apple, Tesla, and Moncler. And a few blocks away, there are community staples like Costco, Home Depot, Best Buy, and the LCBO.
Turning to transportation, in just 3 minutes, drivers can be cruising across Highway 401 (en route to flying across the ocean, if they use it to get to Toronto Pearson International Airport, which is just a 12-minute drive from home). Of course, with sustainability top of mind, TRETTI also encourages a number of alternative transportation methods thanks to features like electric vehicle charging stations, a car sharing program in partnership with Kite Mobility, and long-term bicycle parking.
Already boasting a Transit Score of 89%, TRETTI will also soon benefit from the ambitious Finch West LRT expansion that will see an 11-kilometre light rail transit line with 18 new stops; the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, connecting Downsview Station to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre; and an extensive network of new pedestrian and cycling trails throughout the neighbourhood.
It’s truly the best of all worlds – Scandinavian inspired, Toronto based, and directly linked to the TTC subway, keeping you connected to anything and everything. Stay tuned, there are more exciting updates to come.

TRETTI’S Model Suite sets new standards for Smart LivingApril 21, 2023 READ MORE
With two light-filled bedrooms; two full bathrooms; and an inviting kitchen/living space, all expertly distributed in just over 550 square feet, the TRETTI model suite is a stunning representation of the community vision: to create a lifestyle designed for the way people really live.
This isn’t just an example of contemporary design, excellent craftsmanship, or beautiful detailing (though all three are evident throughout the suite), this is a carefully considered and finely tuned plan for optimized urban living. It’s a smart space where form and function are in perfect harmony, and where unnecessary elements have been stripped away, leaving only the essentials for a more meaningful, more intuitive environment to call home.
Light, airy spaces, sure to brighten your day.
With a neutral colour palette, clean lines, natural materials, and multi-functional design, the model suite at TRETTI presents an inspiring interpretation of the Scandinavian design aesthetic. The space is unexpectedly bright, capturing natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows that grace both bedrooms and the main living space. In fact, the view is the first thing you see when you step into the suite, an entrance that creates a stunning first impression.
The kitchen comes next, with its compact, yet efficient design. Stainless steel appliances are positioned to keep everything within reach. Quartz countertops create convenient work surfaces, and custom-designed cabinetry features soft-close hardware on doors and drawers – the kind of thoughtful touch that elevates the everyday experience.
That same thoughtfulness led us to include two full bathrooms and a brilliant split-bedroom layout, ensuring a sense of privacy when hosting guests. Throughout the space, finishes like contemporary glass and wide-plank wood grain laminate imbue the suite with a sense of materiality that puts you at ease, whether you’re entertaining friends or cozying up in bed.
A connection to the outdoors
In addition to abundant natural light, the model suite also features a strong connection to the outdoors thanks to a spacious balcony that feels like a natural extension of the indoor space. Sliding doors provide access from the living room, framing the “urban deck.” The balcony extends nearly the full width of the suite, and is the perfect setting for your morning coffee, a sun salutation, or simply a moment’s pause for a breath of fresh air.
Complete comfort and total control
Of course, our comprehensive approach to design means that the features you can’t see at TRETTI are just as important as those you can. In addition to thoughtful details like a suite entry alarm, connected to a monitoring system located at the concierge; or a built-in USB outlet for convenient charging of your smartphone or electronic device in the main bedroom; TRETTI also features an innovative geothermal heating and cooling system that cuts costs, helps preserve the environment, and increases property value.
Geothermal uses about 40% less energy than a traditional HVAC system and produces 70% less greenhouse gas. It saves over 5 million litres of water every year, all while providing total control of in-suite heating and cooling, no matter the season or outdoor conditions.
TRETTI residents will have the added benefit of predictable monthly costs, confidence in a system with an infinite life span, a tangible increase in property value, and the comfort of knowing that this community is part of the solution for global climate change.
TRETTI’s model suite delivers a big promise with a small footprint. It’s the kind of smart urban development that sets Collecdev apart. Complete communities, good design, and social spaces that invite true connection – these are the building blocks that support today’s modern lifestyles. And you’ll find them all at TRETTI.

There’s also an indoor Pet Wash Station that makes clean-up a breeze.

As a future-forward, Scandinavian-inspired, complete community, it should come as no surprise that TRETTI has a sharp eye for anticipating what’s to come – and that intuitive foresight is being driven home once again with the announcement of the partnership between TRETTI and Kite Mobility. The future of electric ridesharing is coming to Wilson Heights.
TRETTI x Kite will bring the flexibility, sustainability and convenience of electric ridesharing to TRETTI residents with three community Teslas, along with three designated parking spaces equipped with EV charging stations. In addition, Kite will provide a combination of 16 eBikes and eScooters, housed in a dedicated bike room. This mobility fleet is proof positive of our commitment to the Collecdev pillars.
Aligned with the Collecdev Vision
While each of our pillars represents a different aspect of our approach to community building, the three share many similar themes.
Social Sustainability focuses on building communities that anticipate the future while balancing today’s needs through the integration of diverse programmatic elements.
Experiential Design drives us to understand the wants and needs of our homeowners, ensuring our projects are human-centred and future-proofed.
And Environmental Stewardship demands a forward-thinking approach to urbanization, one that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of our communities.
TRETTI x Kite fulfills all of these goals, providing residents with convenient on-site access to easy, affordable, sustainable transportation – an innovative multi-vehicle amenity that will change the way we get around.
Intuitive, Innovative and Eco-Friendly
Contactless and digital, Kite puts the power of electric ridesharing in the palm of your hand. Through the Kite Mobility app, TRETTI residents will be able to book reservations and confirm trip details, then simply scan the QR code found on the car for contactless key retrieval when it’s time to start your ride.
The fleet will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Book a ride for a quick trip across the city, or head out of town, worry free – insured, cleaned and charged, and with unlimited mileage and electric vehicle infrastructure that’s contributing to a sustainable eco-system, TRETTI residents will enjoy stress-free travel and complete peace of mind.
This partnership with Kite underscores a modern approach to urban development, an approach that sits at the core of Collecdev, building future-proofed communities that empower residents and deliver a better way to live. With TRETTI x Kite, we’re speeding towards the future, one fully-charged Tesla at a time.
