Fleur is a beacon of fashion, art and culture

Toronto’s downtown core is vibrant, diverse and lively, appealing to a variety of people and lifestyles. With the downtown population expected to double to more than 500,000 over the next 25 years, the city is poised to continue its upward trajectory as a destination for investment.

One area in particular that’s attracting both retailers and developers alike is the City’s Garden District, located just east of Yonge, from College to Queen Street. The area has really “blossomed” over the last few years, and at the heart of it you’ll find Menkes‘ Fleur Residences.

With a Walk Score of 99 and a perfect Transit Score of 100, Fleur offers residents seamless access to the city’s premier dining, shopping and cultural destinations. In a city where traffic congestion is a growing frustration, everyone wants the luxury of living close to public transit, and Fleur is set between two major subway station stations, Queen and Dundas. In fact, the building neighbours the lively Dundas Square, a magnet for musical acts, cultural events and entertainment.

Set at the epicentre of retail and style, Fleur is every shopaholic’s dream come true. The building is located just steps away from North America’s most popular mall, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, home to world-renowned retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. The popular tourist destination underwent a massive revitalization, and over the last several years, introduced a number of new high-end international retailers to its eclectic mix. There has been an influx of foreign retailers to the area, further confirmation of the neighbourhood’s international appeal. The east side of Yonge Street is cast with a remarkable range of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants, and cafes.

The sleek 32-storey tower puts you within a five-minute walk to the Elgin & Winter Garden Theatres, stacked, magnificently restored treasures, and a four-minute walk to the historic Massey Hall. Toronto consistently ranks among the top three cities in the world for live theatre.

Living at Fleur will also be a foodie’s paradise, close to some of the best cuisine the city has to offer, such as popular dining spots like Canoe, Cactus Club and Hy’s Steakhouse, all within 10 minutes of the building. Also, a short 10-minute stroll south, is Toronto’s world-famous St. Lawrence Market, where you will find an overwhelming array of fresh produce, meats, seafood, and delicacies offered by countless vendors, bakers, and artisans.

To add to the long list of things to see and do in this interesting and diverse neighbourhood, Nathan Phillips Square, at the foot of Toronto’s iconic City Hall, is also minutes away. The Square is home to some of Toronto’s best farmers markets, concerts, art exhibits, holiday celebrations, and more. In winter, the reflecting pool transforms into a public skating rink.

Close to the action on Yonge Street, yet quietly sheltered, Fleur’s tower ascends from a unique three-storey glass and stone podium. Designed by the talented local firm architectsAlliance, a subtle garden theme welcomes residents as they approach the striking tower, which much like its community, stands as a symbol of fashion and art. Inspired by the surrounding Garden District, the architects designed a stone element in the tower’s base along Church Street to imitate the monolithic stone of the neighbourhood’s nearby cathedrals.

Urban Torontonians with busy lifestyles desire a home where they can relax and unwind, but also enjoy the best the city has to offer. Fleur is unique in that it’s at the centre of the excitement of the downtown core, yet nestled in the Garden District, which also retains a more peaceful vibe.

For anyone looking for all the conveniences of downtown living wrapped into one phenomenal location, Fleur Residences is your ideal home. For more information visit the Menkes Store, located at 110 Harbour St, Unit 106, call 416.591.7700 or visit the website.
