I have been assigned to work on a new and large project. I am well versed with MVC 5 with other projects. I am trying to make a decision to choose between MVC5 or .NET Core for development. Given that I have a strict time constraint plus have to go through
a learning curve with .NET Core, which route should I take.
Thanks in advance.

If the project needs to be hosted on Linux or Mac (instead of Windows), use Core. Otherwise use MVC 5.

IMO "large" +"strict time constraint" +"have to go through a learning curve" points clearly to MVC 5. For your first ASP.NET Core project pick rather a small project (and preferably without any dependency on older 4.X libraries)...

Mike, Patrice, I thought so to use MVC5 since I don't need to host on Linux or Mac.
One more question. Would it be easy to migrate to .NET Core later?

There are no tools for migrating, so it would be a manual job. How easy that will be depends on the size and complexity of your application.
