NorthCore Condos By Fieldgate Urban & Westdale Properties, Yonge & Sheppard, Toronto


Project Overview

Would you like to have a massive, 60,000 sq ft urban parkland as your neighbour? North Core Condos located at 53 Sheppard Avenue West, North York, ON might just be the one for you. Oh, and on the other side, you have convenience at your doorstep with one of Toronto’s busiest TTC interchanges – Sheppard-Yonge Subway Station – granting you access to two subway lines: green and yellow, just minutes away!


Yes, it’s located in the Lansing neighbourhood, next to Shepphard Avenue West and Beecroft Road. You know about the park and TTC stop but you have restaurants, art galleries, and schools all right there.

What’s really special about this project is that it’s located and designed in such a way that the 16-story tower promises to offer many of its residents that much-dreamed tree-top view. The interior of the suits has been designed to maximize comfort while maintaining the elegance of the building. The kitchen is spacious and comes with hidden paneled appliances.


You have the views, you have the location, you have a park, you have access to – not one but two subway lines – and as you’ll see once you scroll down, you also have a load of awesome amenities for eat, work, and play!


This project has been developed by a partnership between Fieldgate Urban & Westdale Properties. It’s by no means their first project with both developers having a 60-year history in real estate development across USA and Canada. From the architects to the interior team to the sales team – the project is backed by a solid unit of industry leaders.

Why You Should Invest In North Core Condos

– Prime location in the heart of Toronto – next to parkland, subway interchange station, and retail and entertainment hubs.
– It has all the amenities that you’d look for in a condo complex.



Living in this neighbourhood has two highlights: living right across one of Toronto’s  central interchanges and being neighbours with Albert Standing Park (spoiler alert: that’s not the only park close by). But Shepphard-Yonge has a lot more to offer. Below is a little breakdown of local attractions / important places in the Lansing neighbourhood:


Restaurants / Entertainment

– Cafe Landwer (10-minute walk)
– Ichiban Asian All You Can Eat (13-minute walk)
– Gibson House Museum (15-minute walk)
– Evviva Breakfast and Lunch (17-minute walk)


Transit Stops

Retail Spaces

The two towers will also share a centrally-located lobby that will have pedestrian access from Dawes Road and a passenger drop-off/car entrance from Guest Avenue to the west. When it comes to public transportation, Dawes Condos is nearly unbeatable with its Rider’s Paradise Transit Score of 93. In just 8 minutes by foot, condo residents can walk to the Main Street Line 2 TTC subway station, allowing them to commute downtown in just 36 minutes.

Conversely, residents can also walk to the nearby Danforth GO Station in the same amount of time, allowing for downtown commutes of just 23 minutes.

And, other than use bus routes found throughout the neighbourhood, residents can opt to use a vehicle and drive downtown in just 22 minutes or the Beaches neighbourhood in just 11 minutes.

Wide-ranging in its influence, fully-encompassing in its convenience, awe-inspiring in its luxurious design — this east-end condominium has it all, making it the ideal home for new families and the ideal investment for savvy investors.

The process to buying pre-construction condos can be quite rushed. When you register with us for a project, we’ll reach out to you to get your specifics, so it’s good to know in advance the type of unit you’re looking for and your budget. If you register ahead of the sales launch and are serious about buying, we will get you to fill out a builder suite request worksheet.
We are unable to guarantee that the suite you request will be allocated to you and your agent. Many pre-construction sales launches are extremely competitive and fast-paced. To increase your odds of receiving an allocation it is best to be flexible on the type of suite, floor and exposure that you have requested. You are also in no way obligated to purchase the suite you’ve been allocated.
The deposit structure on pre-construction condos will vary from project to project but generally breaks down like this:

$5,000 on signing
balance to 5% in 30 days
5% in 60-90 days
5% in 120-270 days
5% on occupancy
Getting a lawyer, preferably one who is familiar with pre-construction contracts, is never a bad idea. We would encourage our clients to have a real estate lawyer review their Agreement of Purchase and Sale during the Cooling Off period. If you need help finding a lawyer, we can introduce you to our lawyer who handles many of our pre-construction clients.
On closing, which is three to four years after signing, you will need to pay closing costs. As with any property purchase you will have to pay:

• Legal fees (about $1,500-$2,000)
• Municipal & Provincial Land Transfer Tax (this will depend on the price of the property–use our Land Transfer Tax calculator )

In addition to these, pre-construction closing costs also include:

• Development charges (these vary per project depending on the unit type but can range from $5,000-$12,000)
• HST (for investors, which can be rebated back up to $24,000)
By submitting a worksheet, you increase your chances of getting your preferred suite. In essence, it is a suite request sheet. It shows the condo developer that there are interested buyers. Agents are then allocated suites based on the worksheets they submit.

Many pre-construction launches are fast-paced and extremely competitive with buildings selling out in 24 hours. In these launches a suite request worksheet submission is necessary to ensure that you actually have a possibility of receiving the suite you’d like (but this is never guaranteed).

You are not guaranteed to receive the suite you request and you are also in no way obligated to buy the suite you’ve been allocated.
Pierre’s expertise in Toronto’s pre-construction condo market has earned him Platinum Broker status among Toronto’s top developers. This means that when you buy or invest with the Pierre Carapetian Group team, you have your pick of the best floor plans and the lowest pricing available.We represent you, not the builder and we will always guide you towards projects that we believe are a good investment and have great resale value.
Yes. As we mentioned, the process to buying pre-construction can be quite competitive and rushed. After you’ve signed an Agreement of Purchase and Sale with the builder you are given ten days to look over the contract and ensure everything looks good for you. Keep in mind, the cooling off period is ten consecutive days, not ten business days.
You won’t need a mortgage pre-approval right away, but it is always best to speak to your mortgage professional so that you fully understand your borrowing power.

You will however need a Mortgage Letter that states upon the building taking occupancy you will be able to afford and carry the property. Typically this is required within the first 30 days of signing. It is always a good idea to get a mortgage pre-approval in the beginning of your real estate journey so that you know how much you can afford.
This will depend on whether you are buying as an end user (planning to live there) or an investor. In Ontario, there are two types of HST Rebates in place for newly built properties.

If you are buying as an end user, typically the Ontario HST rebate is assigned to the builder directly upon closing, allowing the builder to essentially pay the cost of the HST from your purchase.

If you are buying as an investor, you must pay the HST upfront at closing and have your lawyer file for a full HST rebate, refunded 4 to 6 weeks later provided they have a one year lease in place.
