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.

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...
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.

The Future of Electric Ridesharing is Coming to TRETTIFebruary 24, 2023 READ MORE
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.

Late last month, while most people were coming down from the high of the holidays, for TRETTI homeowners, the excitement was just beginning as they tuned in on January 30th for the TRETTI Homeowner Information Session.
Over 200 soon-to-be residents attended the virtual event, hosted by Natascha Pieper, Collecdev’s Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, and Julian McNabb, Vice-President of Melbourne Property Management, the award-winning firm poised to bring their 100+ years of combined experience to provide quality service and exceptional performance at TRETTI.
During the 2-hour online webinar, TRETTI residents listened with rapt attention as they learned about their future home, the move-in process, and the teams in place to support the community – passionate people like Collecdev’s Customer Care Manager, Nadine Kiriakis, and her dedicated team responsible for upholding our mission to build complete communities with uncompromising standards of quality and strong homeowner relationships; and Shanta Sapkota, TRETTI’s official Property Manager. With PDIs (Pre-Delivery Inspection) to begin soon at the Scandinavian-inspired community, the Homeowner Information Session marked a key milestone on the road to move-in day.
Natascha kicked things off with a discussion of Collecdev and our portfolio of award-winning communities, before focusing in on TRETTI and the incredible lifestyle – complete with crisp contemporary architecture, intelligent design, and spectacular neighbourhood and building amenities – that await residents. She then walked viewers through the various aspects of customer care including PDIs, interim occupancy, key collection, utility setup, and the Tarion warranty. Finally, Julian spoke to the purview of property management, covering topics like occupancy fees, elevator booking, parking and lockers, condo rules, garbage and recycling, insurance and registration, the Board of Directors, and of course, the main event – move-in day.
Around the 1-hour mark, the session transitioned from a presentation into an open discussion where Natascha and Julian fielded questions from attendees, demonstrating Collecdev’s signature collaborative approach to the human-centred experience. It was a clear reflection of the shared values between Collecdev and Melbourne Property Management and illustrated precisely why we’ve chosen them to take the helm at TRETTI. As a company whose mission is to “create a sense of community,” Melbourne fits perfectly with Collecdev’s guiding ethos, and will play a key role in helping to realize our vision of TRETTI as a vibrant, thriving, inspiring, engaging and complete community for the 21st century and beyond.
For questions regarding upcoming milestones like occupancy and closing information or key collection, please contact a member of the Collecdev customer care team (416.640.6000 x1, firstname.lastname@example.org). For move-in related questions or booking of the elevator please contact TRETTI’s property manager Shanta Sapkota (437.880.4512, email@example.com).

Excitement is building for occupancy at TRETTI. PDIs are taking place, the finished building is coming to life, and move-in day is just around the corner for this Scandinavian-inspired, multi-layered community in the heart of Wilson Heights. And while you’re packing boxes and picking out furniture, you may also be wondering exactly what to expect. Here is all the information you need to prepare.
I’ve got my occupancy date, now what?
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. The reason they’re not the same is a matter of logistics – your closing and key handover will likely take place in the afternoon, but move-in day is best tackled with an early start (and an elevator booking).
Of course, once your keys are in hand, the suite is yours, so if you want to visit your new home and drop off a few small boxes of personal items. 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 need to book the elevator.
How do I book the elevator?
The ongoing management of TRETTI is in the expert hands of Melbourne Property Management, a Toronto-based firm with over 100 years of combined industry experience. The Property Manager assigned to TRETTI is Shanta Sapkota, please call Shanta directly at 416.546.2126 x174. Shanta will help you gather all the necessary forms and information that you need. You’ll be able to book the elevator starting the day after occupancy.
What will I need?
To book the elevator you’ll need:
- 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
Don’t forget that an elevator booking is necessary any time you have a large delivery that requires the use of the loading bay and the elevators.
What can I expect on move-in day?
Together, Collecdev and Melbourne Property Management have handled tens of thousands of move-ins, and we’ve developed the best practices that will help ensure a smooth and seamless experience getting into your new home.
- Upon arrival, check in with the concierge, they’ll be available for any questions throughout the day.
- Make sure your moving truck and any other vehicles are in the loading bay and not blocking the roadways or any fire routes (this is why we book elevator times, to ensure there’s sufficient space for everyone moving that day).
- Start the heavy lifting.
- When you’re finished, remember to break down any large boxes and take them to the garbage / recycling room.
- Kick back and relax in your new home.
What will the building be like when I move in?
During interim occupancy, some parts of the building may still be under construction. That means there may be protective coverings in the elevator cabs and some noise when the crews are on site. You can also expect some ongoing construction of the exterior and the amenity spaces, which won’t be accessible until after construction is complete. As well, paint, wallpaper and carpets in common areas may not yet be finished – they’ll be installed after the bulk of move-ins have taken place so they remain protected from any damage.
Rest assured that everyone (residents, workers and trade partners) is working towards 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.
TRETTI is set to deliver a thriving community with contemporary architecture, elegant interiors, and a strong connection to nature. It’s the best of all worlds, and it’s ready to welcome you home.
