Currently in preconstruction phase, the Nordic Condos at Wilson Avenue, Toronto is expected &to be occupied by January 2023. Developed by Collecdev and designed by gh3, the property is well-planned and ensures that all amenities are within reach. The location too plays an important factor to help you decide. There are multiple bus routes that pass through the neighborhood which connects you to the rest of the city. A few minutes of walk also takes you to Wilson Subway Station which can connect you to major junctions of the city. The Nordic Condos will have a total of 429 units split between 12 storeys and offer various suite types from 1-bedroom to 3-bedroom variants, making it one of the most desirable condos in North York.
Location & Neighbourhood
Condos in Wilson Heights present a great opportunity to be part of a neighbourhood that’s just beginning to transform. This project is the latest in a series of proposals seeking to densify the area immediately surrounding the subway, some of which plan to add more pedestrian connections to the station, as well as community space and more parkland. With Wilson Station located just 5 minutes away by foot, this is, no doubt, a great neighbourhood for transit. Not only does the nearby subway get you to the heart of downtown in under 30 minutes and to York University in ten, but proximity to Highway 401 and the Allen Expressway make it a great spot for those that commute on a daily basis as well. It has an excellent 91 for its Transit Score.
