Condo living has it all with Menkes communities
Gone are the days when the only gold standard for homeownership was the house in the suburbs with the white picket fence. Today many young families are setting their sights on highrise urban living, where their kids have exposure to arts, culture, and more! They can experience all that city life has to offer, and at the same time have plenty of room to play.
Enter Menkes, one of the first developers to introduce a children’s playroom as an amenity space, when it launched The Eglinton Condominium in 2014. Today – after successfully introducing both indoor and outdoor children’s spaces at its Harbour Plaza community in 2018 — the developer has even grander plans for condo living that will cater to children of all ages.
While condo living once posed challenges to residents with large families or young children, the company’s latest condo projects will elevate your ability to entertain.
Sugar Wharf Condominiums, part of an 11.5-acre community on Toronto’s waterfront, will offer future residents with kids a list of amenities that rivals any children’s facility, and completely eliminates the hassle of bundling them up in cold weather, in search of local indoor entertainment. Residents will have access to a hobby studio, an arts and crafts room, a music room, virtual reality space, and children’s playroom. There will also be plenty of storage close to your suite to store gear and sporting equipment.
Mobilio, Menkes’ upcoming community in Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, which will include a combination of condos and townhomes, is also being developed with families in mind.
“We have really considered every member of your family right down to your pets,” says Jared Menkes, executive vice-president, highrise. “Mobilio will include a convenient petwashing station. I am also very excited about the park aspect of this project. We will have the linear park connecting all the projects together on this block and on future blocks, that provide trails and exciting ways for families to stay active.”
Mobilio will be anchored by an almost 40,000-sq.-ft. linear park, part of Vaughan’s Black Creek Renewal project, which upon completion, will establish a series of promenades, plazas and parks, spanning more than 30 acres. The community also includes attractive gathering places, walking paths and family-friendly play areas. In cold weather, families can take advantage of Mobilio’s equally family-friendly indoor playroom.
When it comes to amenities, Menkes has carefully considered everything a family would get out of living in a single-family home, and incorporates these aspects into its condos. For those who enjoy entertaining, there are sophisticated party rooms with kitchens and bar areas, and landscaped terraces equipped with barbecues.
You enjoy a quiet night in? Sugar Wharf Condos will include a state-of-the-art theatre and games lounge. And if you enjoy staying active, it will have a fitness centre with separate weight, virtual and yoga studios.
There is no doubt that with Toronto experiencing a housing shortage, and many families priced out of the single-family housing market in urban centres, condo living will continue to be the way of the future. Whether you’re looking to start your family, grow your family, downsize, or retire, Menkes offers condo amenities that will cater to every family, and every lifestyle.
