As part of its ongoing commitment to regenerating Toronto’s many neighbourhoods, 500 Wilson will be a dynamic addition to contemporary urban life in the community. A mix of condominiums and retail units to animate life at street level, this is a diverse, convenient and community-minded proposal that ambitiously and positively enhances everyday life for both its occupants and passers-by who will benefit from a safer and more lively streetscape. Designed by the award-winning architecture firm gh3, this development will replace aging buildings currently on the site with an architecturally significant mixed-use building attractive to the growing community who see Wilson Heights as an affordable and convenient place to live—a perfect choice for people seeking an exceptional location, non-traditional amenities, and a strong sense of community.
Retail will form the basis of a very street-friendly podium, with the development transitioning up to a 13-storey mid-rise building that respects the existing density of the neighbourhood while contributing to its evolution as a contemporary and liveable part of the city. The added density of the mid-rise residential building will provide a necessary critical mass of mixed housing tenure for the community—including affordable housing and rental replacement.
Those unfamiliar with the context of the site will be surprised by how walkable the neighbourhood is becoming with existing retail set to grow substantially. The nearby Wilson subway station adds tremendous convenience to residents of 500 Wilson. Ground-level retail and close connections to Highway 401, the Yorkdale Shopping Centre and several city parks collectively amount to a host of exciting new options for people to shop, work, and play. Collecdev is proud to be part of this neighbourhood’s growth and transformation.
