Wilson Heights – a charming Toronto communityJanuary 28, 2019
Collecdev buildings are about more than just amazing amenities, quality construction, and inspired interiors. They’re also about community. That’s why for our latest project, Tretti, we’ve chosen the wonderfully eclectic Toronto neighbourhood of Wilson Heights.
This authentic community near Wilson Avenue and Allen Road is full of history, culture, and diversity. Whether you’re looking to shop, eat, or get some fresh air and exercise, Wilson Heights has just the thing. Fashion and furniture. Bagels and bakeries. Parks and pastrami on rye. This is the perfect place to call home.
While Wilson Heights is a mecca for independent businesses and charming local mom n’ pop shops, the proximity to Yorkdale Shopping Centre (less than two kilometres from home) means that, whatever your taste, what you want is always within reach.
Find inspiration and the latest styles in more than 270 stores and unique retail concepts like Zara Home (Toronto’s only outpost of the internationally beloved brand), Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Sporting Life, Lululemon, Peloton, and more. Pick up new tips and technology tricks at the Apple store. Fawn over the marriage of performance and sustainability at Tesla. Find design inspo at Crate & Barrel for your new abode. And for daily sundries, community staples like Costco, Home Depot, Best Buy, Shoppers Drug Mart, and the LCBO are just a few blocks away.
Bagels, bars, bakeries – Wilson Heights has it all. But where this neighbourhood really shines is in its selection of ethnic cuisine. Travel from the Philippines (with bold noodle dishes at Jollytops Filipino Cuisine) to France (at Collette Grand Café). Make stops in Italy (feasting on Italian-inspired, Canadian-made fare at Paese Ristorante), and the Middle East (sampling salmon shish kebabs at Yakamoz Grill). Taste a baker’s dozen types of bagels at Bagel World and stop by Pancer’s Original Deli for classic Montreal smoked meat. Take your taste buds on a global tour, all from the comfort of your own neighbourhood.
In the centre of the TRETTI community, residents will be able to enjoy a 16,000 square foot public community park. But for those looking to adventure out into the neighbourhood will be a Stop and smell the roses in one of six local parks and two city greenbelts, all accessible by bike or on foot. But roses aren’t the only thing on the agenda. At Clanton Park, Balmoral Park, Earl Bales Park, or Downsview Park, choose from tennis courts, baseball diamonds, splash pads, playgrounds, picnic sites, fire pits, scenic trails, even ski slopes. All-season fun to keep you active throughout the year.
When you want to head downtown, out of town, or anywhere in town, the options are endless. Wilson Subway Station will have you in the heart of the city in 15 minutes. Or hop on the train at Yorkdale or Sheppard West. GO Transit, Allen Road, and the 401 are all nearby, giving you easy access to York University, Seneca at York, Humber River Hospital, and more. With Wilson Heights as your home base, the city is yours to discover.
