Midtown Toronto

Midtown Toronto – where exactly is that?

Latest News


Midtown Toronto – where exactly is that?

Mention the neighbourhood Midtown Toronto, and people generally react in one of two ways. “Where exactly is that?? – the inference being that in a growing city of this size, pinpointing where the centre is, well… difficult, to say the least.

And once realizing “Midtown” is roughly defined by Bloor Street to the south, Eglinton Avenue to the north, Bayview to the east and around Dufferin Street to the west, people often think “Old Toronto.”

And in the context of real estate, that means high-priced.

Increasingly accessible

Indeed, with neighbourhoods such as Rosedale, Forest Hill, Deer Park, Summerhill and Yonge & Eglinton, Midtown is generally affluent and exclusive. Signature detached homes in any of these areas can easily run into the multi-million-dollar range.

However, new developments coming on the scene, particularly some landmark highrise condominiums, are making the area increasingly accessible to a variety of residents.

Once commonly known as “Yonge & Eligible,” due to its popularity among young single professionals, Yonge and Eglinton is quickly becoming one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods, appealing to a variety of lifestyles.

Boasting five-star restaurants, boutiques, diverse retail services, schools and corporate head offices, residents have plenty of options for work and play right out their front door.

Crosstown traffic

If a great midtown location isn’t enough, proximity to transit is also a significant appeal of this area, being right on the Yonge Street subway line. And come 2021, moving about the city will get even easier, with the expected opening of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.

Slightly off the beaten trail, wander over to nearby Davisville Village, Mount Pleasant Village and Forest Hill Village for a taste of what that Old Toronto was like, still with small, independent shops and nice little parkettes.

Menkes Sugar Wharf

Menkes’ Sugar Wharf Canada’s top selling condo in 2018

Latest News


Menkes’ Sugar Wharf Canada’s top selling condo in 2018

 

Menkes Sugar Wharf

Sugar Wharf Residences by Menkes Developments Ltd., part of the upcoming mixed-use development on Toronto’s Waterfront, was the best-selling new condominium project in Canada for 2018, according to Altus Group, a leading provider of real estate data and advisory services.

In a year where buyer confidence and sales activity downshifted, Menkes sees this is a major feat.

“We are so pleased that buyers were as passionate about this project as we are,” says Jared Menkes, executive vice-president, Highrise. “The strong response to Sugar Wharf is especially meaningful coming out of 2018, where many builders experienced a shift in market conditions. Increasingly, there has been a flight to quality by prospective homeowners, opting for brands they know and trust, and we are fortunate to be one of those brands.”

Located in East Bayfront at the northeast corner of Queens Quay East and Freeland Street, the Sugar Wharf community will encompass 11.5 acres and include luxury residences, offices, restaurants and shops, Toronto’s first vertically integrated school, and will be anchored by a new two-acre park.  Once complete, Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto Waterfront, home to 7,500 residents and 4,000 office workers. All buildings will be connected to Toronto’s indoor PATH pedestrian system, as the development includes plans to expand the PATH east of Yonge Street.

The residential component of the community, designed by architectsAlliance, will include five condominium towers, varying in height from 64 to 90 storeys, and a midrise rental building. In summer 2018, Menkes launched the first two residential towers and sold 1,241 of a total 1,463 condo units (85 per cent).

According to Altus, new condominium sales fell 38 per cent from the record high in 2017, though they remain close to the 10-year average for the market. Industry experts predict new condos will remain the primary source for additional housing needed to keep up with the pace of immigration.

Construction is well underway at Sugar Wharf Residences. Excavation at the site progressed to over 40 feet below grade. Completion of the towers is slated for 2022.

The Sugar Wharf community officially broke ground in January 2018 with the first phase of the project, 100 Queens Quay East, a 25-storey office tower, featuring approximately 690,00 sq. ft. of Class AAA space. In addition to the new office building, the community will include approximately 300,000 sq. ft. of multi-level commercial retail space, including the new flagship LCBO store. Expected occupancy for the office tower is spring 2021.

COVER STORY: Sugar Wharf

Sugar Wharf by Menkes a well-connected waterfront community

Latest News


Sugar Wharf by Menkes a well-connected waterfront community

Bitter winds and harsh climates are an inescapable fact of Canadian living. And when the cold is a predominate part of life, connectivity becomes a much sought-after luxury. Perhaps more than ever before, people are looking to invest in communities where everything they need comes with convenience – sans slush and cutting wind.

Enter Toronto’s indoor PATH pedestrian system – the world’s largest underground shopping complex. On cold winter days you can walk to work, do your banking, visit the doctor and even see a movie without ever having to set foot outside.

This 30-kilometre network includes 1,200 shops and services, restaurants, and endless entertainment; the epitome of convenient urban living. The PATH is truly the heart of Toronto’s financial and entertainment districts, with connections to 80 buildings, six downtown subway stations, 9 hotels and direct access to the Scotiabank Arena, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Eaton Centre shopping centre, and CN Tower.

As Toronto continues to thrive, its global appeal is helping it attract more than 100,000 new residents per year, and many of these people want to work and live downtown. Given this rapid growth, it’s no wonder that the world’s largest underground city is about to get even bigger as well. As part of the new Sugar Wharf community by Menkes, the PATH network is set to expand east of Yonge Street, into the emerging Waterfront Innovation District.

Menkes is reimagining Toronto’s Waterfront with Sugar Wharf Condominiums, part of an 11.5-acre community that will include luxury residences, offices, restaurants and shops, a two-acre park, and new school. Once complete, Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto Waterfront; home to 7,500 residents and 4,000 office workers.

The comprehensive project aims to seamlessly connect residents and office workers to all parts of the downtown core through the PATH, adding to the 5,000 people who already work in the PATH and more than 200,000 commuters that pass through it daily. The PATH also provides access to Union Station, with connections to the TTC subway, GO Train, Via Rail, and the UP (Union Pearson) Express.

Hammock Room

Residents living at Sugar Wharf on the PATH will be able to take advantage of the UP Express to travel to Pearson International Airport in a quick 25-minute ride. Traveling to your dream tropical destination during the winter months will be easier than ever before. Imagine being able to wear shorts and a t-shirt from home right up until the moment you board your flight without ever putting on your 10-pound winter jacket!

Lobby

With Sugar Wharf’s PATH extension, it will be possible to walk indoors from the waterfront, all the way to Toronto’s world class Financial District. Equally connected to the city as it is to nature, Sugar Wharf will revolutionize how Torontonians live, work and play.

Menkes Breaks Ground on Waterfront Innovation Centre on Toronto Waterfront

Latest News


Menkes Breaks Ground on Waterfront Innovation Centre on Toronto Waterfront

Menkes Developments Ltd. in partnership with Alcion Ventures, has broken ground on the Waterfront Innovation Centre – a new landmark office building on the Toronto waterfront.

The groundbreaking marks the first construction milestone of a 400,000-sq.-ft complex designed by architects Sweeny & Co, which will be comprised of two buildings, with three distinct but interconnected components: The Exchange, The Hive and The Nexus, a space that will serve as a public square and directly connect the two buildings.

menkes_sep20_2018_1

Located in East Bayfront, adjacent to Canada’s Sugar Beach, the Waterfront Innovation Centre anchors Toronto’s surging innovation cluster on the eastern waterfront, representing the next evolution in workplace design that helps reinvent how today’s workforce collaborates in the city’s burgeoning creative and technology sectors.

MILESTONE OCCASION

The milestone represents another step in the revitalization of Toronto’s waterfront. The complex will not only drive economic development with the creation of nearly 3,000 jobs, but also help to shape East Bayfront into a beautiful new neighbourhood where people can live, work and play.

“This is a one-of-a-kind commercial office complex that will redefine how innovative market leading companies conduct their business in our city,” says Peter Menkes, president of Menkes’ commercial/industrial division.

“The Waterfront Innovation Centre will be a cutting edge, collaborative work environment that responds to the changing needs of the workplace and the demand for high quality office space.”

Menkes has more than 60 years of history in residential and commercial development in Toronto. “It is the city we live in, we build in and we are truly passionate about,” says Menkes.

menkes_sep20_2018_2

SUGAR WHARF COMMUNITY

Among the company’s more than 25 million sq. ft. of office and industrial space in the GTA is the recently opened One York Street in Toronto’s South Core, an office building that overlooks the water and is home to the headquarters of Sun Life Financial. In addition, in January, Menkes broke ground at 100 Queens Quay, a new office tower just west of the Waterfront Innovation Centre. That project signifies the first phase of Sugar Wharf, an upcoming waterfront community on an 11.5-acre site which will be anchored by a two-acre park.

The Waterfront Innovation Centre will include cutting-edge building automation controls, under-floor air distribution, direct/indirect LED lighting, a high-performance curtain-wall system and occupancy/daylight sensors. Floor-to-ceiling glass will allow for maximum natural light penetration as well as spectacular views. The building will also generate power via a rooftop photovoltaic solar array.

“By focusing our development efforts on underutilized space, we are not only driving economic development, with a landmark building that will house nearly 3,000 jobs, but we’re also helping shape East Bayfront into a new beautiful neighbourhood,” Menkes says.

WPP, a London, England-based multinational advertising and public relations firm, will become the anchor tenant at the Innovation Centre, occupying 260,000 sq. ft. – more than 60 per cent of the building.

“The Waterfront Innovation Centre is the workplace of the future, supporting Waterfront Toronto’s mandate to make Toronto’s waterfront synonymous with innovation,” says Helen Burstyn, Chair of the Board, Waterfront Toronto. “We’re thrilled to celebrate this milestone occasion with Menkes, as it demonstrates how we’re providing the enabling conditions and infrastructure to attract private sector development that catalyzes the business and job growth necessary to make our Toronto and Ontario more competitive on a global scale.”

Expected occupancy is 2021.

Fleur Condominium

Set to be the new fashion icon on the block

While it may not be Spring, in the heart of the Garden District, the ground is ready for a rather large flower, or “Fleur” to bloom. Menkes broke ground several months back for its newest condo tower, Fleur, at Church and Shuter. And though the temperature is cooling down, construction is heating up with the installation of the crane.

Designed by the talented local team at architectsAlliance, a subtle yet well-appointed garden theme welcomes residents as they approach Fleur. Taking cues from the richness of surrounding materials, the architects have designed a stone element in the tower’s base along Church Street to echo the monolithic stone of the neighbourhood’s nearby cathedrals.

Close to the action on Yonge Street, yet quietly sheltered, the 29-storey tower ascends from a distinctive three-storey glass and stone podium.

“The Garden District is one of Toronto’s most amazing neighbourhoods,” says Jared Menkes, executive vice president of Menkes’ Residential Development. “It reflects the elegance of Old Toronto, the calm of a residential community and the vibrancy of a commercial work force, the pulse of Yonge Street, the energy of the Ryerson campus, and the peaceful serenity of Allan Gardens and Moss Park. Few other areas in Toronto encompass so much as the Garden District. It truly offers the best of everything in one neighbourhood.”

The building’s interior is designed by one of Canada’s most celebrated design firms, The Design Agency, and reflects an elegant urban retreat steeped in both cozy natural character and modern electric energy. The lobby’s doors, set amongst a tree lined window, welcome guests into a warm and inviting ambiance decorated with plush custom furniture, set beneath a grand tiered showpiece chandelier.

Fleur’s lobby has been designed to create a sense of natural elegance,” says Menkes. “Our designers have thoughtfully used a variety of textures, materials and furnishings, including a grand chandelier and floral tapestries, to create a warm and inviting sense of home.”

The building offers one, two, and three-bedroom suites, which include a chef-inspired kitchen design that is open and light-filled. Designed to appeal to every resident’s inner-foodie, the kitchen is driven by its details, created to appeal equally to a five star home chef, or a master of the microwave. The living and dining areas within the suites have been conceived to cultivate comfort. Regardless of layout or size, each unit includes beautiful and thoughtfully-considered spaces, created with comfort in mind.

While its kitchens and living areas may be the suite’s showpieces, the elegance and attention to detail which defines them have been carried into the bathroom(s), each which boast a range of rich materials, and luxurious finishes.

Lobby

Amid theatres, boutiques, bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs, the area offers its own unique amenity program for residents. However, for those tired of venturing out, Fleur provides a range of in-demand, contemporary amenity spaces, including the ultimate workout setting, an intimate rooftop terrace and dining area, and a cozy lounge, and a media room designed to help residents unwind, featuring large format flat screens, wireless connectivity, arcade-style games and traditional board games for some ‘old school’ relaxation.

But there’s nothing else ‘old school’ about this new condo at Church and Shuter. Elegant, fashionable and modern, Fleur offers residents more than a place to live their life, it offers a chance to cultivate a luxurious lifestyle.

Sugar Wharf Condominiums

The Sweetest Life You Can Imagine Coming Soon by Menkes

With a brand new condo gallery opening soon at its One York Street complex, Menkes Developments Ltd. is introducing an exceptional new home opportunity in Toronto’s Downtown Waterfront district with Sugar Wharf Condominiums.

These luxury residences will be part of the new Sugar Wharf community, which will encompass 11.5 acres and include offices, restaurants and shops, a two-acre park, and a new school. Once complete, Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto Waterfront; home to 7,500 residents and 4,000 office workers. With the water’s edge just steps away, and easy access to all the conveniences and entertainment options the city has to offer, this phenomenal location represents both an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life and the opportunity to experience every dynamic facet of downtown living. So whether it’s taking a relaxing evening stroll on the boardwalk, or cheering on the home team at a basketball game at the Scotiabank Arena, there will be something for everyone.

Toronto is home to one of the longest urban shorelines in the world. Over a 46-kilometre stretch from Rouge River in the east, to Etobicoke Creek in the west, the waterfront is home to beaches, parks, concert venues, markets and art galleries – and Sugar Wharf is in the middle of all the action. The comprehensive project will seamlessly connect residents and office workers to all parts of the downtown core through the PATH, which provides direct access to Union Station, the largest transit hub in the Greater Toronto Area, with connections to the TTC subway, GO Train, Via Rail, and the UP (Union Pearson) Express. With Sugar Wharf’s PATH extension, it will be possible to walk indoors from the waterfront, all the way to Toronto’s world class Financial District.

Speaking of play, Sugar Wharf’s stunning amenities, designed by award-winning interior design firm Cecconi Simone, will take condominium living to the ultimate level. From entertaining guests, and keeping the kids busy, to enjoying some quiet time and relaxation. Whether you’re living independently, or looking to grow your family, Sugar Wharf has every facet of your lifestyle covered, with amenities so inviting, you’ll forget that you’re at home and not an exclusive resort.

The building offers future residents and their guests a variety of social gathering spaces including: a games lounge, private theatres, party rooms, and a bar/lounge area. And families with children will have more to do than they could ever dream of, with a list of amenities that rivals any children’s facility, and completely eliminates the hassle of bundling up the kids in cold weather, in search of local indoor entertainment. Residents will have access to an art/hobby studio, an arts and crafts room, music room, virtual reality room, hammock lounge, and children’s playroom. Guests from out of town can also take advantage of two luxurious hotel-styled guest suites.

The landscaped outdoor space, designed by NAK Design Group, is equally as exciting as the interior. It features a reflective pool, a barbecue and fire pit with adjacent dining area — taking alfresco dining to the next level — and a play area for the little ones. No matter what you’re doing outside, you will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the city and water.

Residents will also be able to enjoy living their most active lifestyle. In addition to being connected to the waterfront boardwalk and everything it has to offer, the development will include access to a 25,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness centre equipped with cardio machines, free weights, a pool, basketball court, and fitness studios for group classes.

With today’s hectic urban lifestyle, everyone wants (and needs) the opportunity to slow down once in a while to relax. Living on the waterfront at Sugar Wharf Condominiums will give future residents that chance to take time for themselves and recharge every single day. For any busy urban professional, this will truly be the best of both worlds.

Coming Soon from Menkes – investing in the heart of the city

When it comes to downtown living, location is key, so when a building scores a near perfect Walk Score, and a 100 per cent perfect Bike and Transit Score, urban investors should not waste time.

Don’t miss the opportunity to invest in Menkes‘ newest 21-storey condominium tower in.DE, located at the corner of Dundas and Jarvis Streets, steps from everything downtown. With a booming economy, world-renowned reputation for diversity, and the downtown core population expected to soon double to over 500,000, Toronto is poised to continue its upward trajectory as a destination for investment.

The sleek tower is situated in a prime downtown location, rich with history and culture, and set within short walking distance to transit, shopping, hospitals, schools, entertainment, and more. The surrounding area is cast with popular local attractions which include: the Toronto Eaton Centre, Yonge-Dundas Square, Distillery District, St. Lawrence Market, Massey Hall, St. James Park, and two of Canada’s top universities, Ryerson University, and University of Toronto. It’s also a short walk to Bay Street (Canada’s financial capital), and home to the Toronto Stock market, and the country’s leading law and accounting firms.

Located at the centre of Toronto’s Innovation District, in.DE is set in a neighbourhood where technology, health sciences and education combine, and where technology and innovation centres are rapidly expanding. With Toronto’s $53 billion tech sector a leading sector in North America, it’s a community with enormous growth potential.

From unique architecture, and elegant interior designs, to superior amenities, Menkes has turned to the industry’s best and brightest, to create a project that will stand out in a changing neighbourhood.

Designed by the talented team at Turner Fleischer Architects, the building’s architecture compliments the curve of Dundas Street and its location at the end of a view corridor. The distinctive three-storey glass and brick podium, with its strong rectilinear form, has a gradual curve along its entire length. The tower’s brick and glass façade marries the old with new to create a distinctive structure, which will create a striking silhouette on the city skyline.

Inside the building, Patton Design Studio, one of Canada’s most celebrated interior design teams, has taken a modern, yet chic approach, which reflects the social atmosphere of the neighbourhood.

in.DE’s lobby and deluxe amenity areas have been designed to encourage a sense of community, while staying naturally elegant. The designers have thoughtfully used a variety of textures, materials and furnishings – to create inviting common spaces that will complement the lives of residents.

Building amenities include: a chic and cozy event lounge, a private dining room, a fully equipped catering kitchen, communal work area with lounge seating for collaborative work or study, a fully-equipped cardio studio with separate kickboxing and weight areas, yoga/mediation area with virtual console for classes, a play zone with table tennis and open lounge seating, and a spacious private landscaped outdoor terrace designed by NAK Design Group, which includes barbecue facilities. The building also features 24-hour concierge service, on-site bicycle storage and a luxurious hotel-styled guest suite.

Condo and homebuilders join forces to help house the homeless

(CNW) — As the weather turns cold for Toronto’s homeless population, the city’s Kensington Market neighbourhood is seeing construction begin on Toronto’s first purpose-built homes for homeless people in more than 10 years.

An excavator broke ground earlier this week in preparation for spring construction on the small strip of land beside St. Clare’s Multifaith Housing Society’s existing building at 25 Leonard Avenue, just east of Bathurst Street. This unique three-storey, 22-unit project was backed by neighbours and made possible with government and private sector support.

St. Clare’s construction partners — including home and condo builders, unions and construction associations — are stepping up to the plate in a $1 million fundraising effort.

The corporate donors are Aspen Ridge, Brown Group, Great Gulf, Greenpark, Heavy Construction Association of Toronto, Laurier Homes, Liberty Development, Lindvest, LiUNA Local 183, LiUNA Ontario Provincial District Council, Mattamy Homes, Menkes, Ontario Formwork Association, Silvercore, Tridel and Yorkwood.

Through its Open Door Program, Toronto is assisting the project with a $500,000 capital grant and waiving municipal fees and development charges.

“This was a must-do project for St. Clare’s. We are relieved to finally be through a two-year planning process and are grateful for the support of RESCON, Toronto Deputy Mayor Ana Bailão, Councillor Joe Cressy and our very supportive neighbours, said Andrea Adam, St. Clare’s operations manager.

“I applaud the hard work and vision of St. Clare’s to make this innovative project a reality,” said Bailão, chairwoman of Toronto’s affordable housing committee. “St. Clare’s is a model that works. Their partnership-based approach has created new opportunities for those seeking a safe, clean, affordable place to call home.”

“Ensuring access to safe and affordable housing for all our friends and neighbours is critical,” Cressy added. “We have a housing crisis in our city, and the new affordable homes at 25 Leonard Avenue are a crucial and welcome addition to our community.”

According to Michele McMaster, affordable housing consultant of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, “CMHC has investigated St. Clare’s operating model and found it to be replicable and scalable. We are delighted that St. Clare’s is inspiring private developers, and we hope to encourage more in the future.”

“We chose to support this project because we believe the construction industry should give back. St. Clare,s is a caring and effective organization that we respect, and we know that they have the right leadership to steer this project to success, said RESCON chairman emeritus Phil Rubinoff.

This latest intensification of the site follows the award-winning 2006 addition of 26 apartments to the roof of the building at 25 Leonard.

St. Claire’s is a charitable foundation and landlord responsible for 413 rental units in five buildings across Toronto to help get the homeless and hard-to-house into their own home to give them privacy and dignity.

RESCON is the non-profit association that represents more than 200 of Ontario’s residential builders. Its members build highrise, midrise and lowrise homes, including rental apartments and social housing.
