4800 Yonge Condos Design tower positioning results in minimally obstructed views from surrounding buildings, The glass podium, vertical fins are accentuated on the top three floors, glass canopies wrap around the building’s frontage providing protection from downdrafts and creating a sense of intimacy at sidewalk level.
4800 Yonge Condos ground level floor plan would see the residential entrance along Bogert Avenue, with the loading dock and parking entrance to the 440 parking spaces located towards the southwestern corner of the site. While retail fronts onto Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue, the two entrances to the connected office lobby (shaded pink below) will be located along the northeastern side along Yonge Street, and on the northwestern corner fronting Sheppard Avenue.
It was noted that the sculptural form of the curvilinear design would give the project a distinct identity, from both far away on the North York City Centre skyline, as well as from up close. It was suggested by members that this development could be the one to elevate this part of the city in terms of architectural integrity, design, and environmental qualities if the team carries through by designing at a standard that this corner should demand. The applicants stated that they are designing to Toronto Green Standard Tier 1, and in response the panel members urged them to go far beyond that, describing it as a minimum environmental standard which needs to be surpassed.
4800 Yonge Condo parking garage would be built to take into account unique below-grade site conditions due to the presence of the TTC’s Y track which allows out of service subway trains to transfer between Line 1 and Line 4. The west Y track branches off the Yonge line and curves on a northwestern trajectory through the site, with levels P2 and P3 to be built above the track but levels P4 through 6 would only be built west and south of it. The northeast side of the residential tower essentially follows the edge of the subway tunnel below.

Menkes is a Toronto-based developer with over sixty years of experience. Having started in the single family home sector, Menkes has expanded recently into the construction of condominiums, commercial, and industrial projects. Most well known for their work at North York’s City Centre, Menkes has made a real name for itself across the GTA.
Something of a family business, Menkes was founded in 1976 by Murray Menkes, and now Alan Menkes and his two brothers serve as co-presidents of the firm their father established. The team has a strong emphasis on family ties, values like integrity, social connection and meaningful relationships within the communities they create.
Though the traditions of this family business remain intact, Menkes has managed to build outwardly and expand into so many different facets of real estate. They continue to raise the standard in condominiums and commercial development, and apply the lessons they have learned back to their first passion – homes for families of the GTA.
With hundreds of condominiums for sale, North York is one of the fastest-growing regions of Toronto, and a place where growth is expected to continue for decades. Property values are steadily increasing, and new listings hold a $686 price per square foot.
Pre-construction condos in the city average in the low $400K price range, and tick up every year, largely due to the growth the region has continued to enjoy over the last half-century. Students, thriving immigrant communities, as well as new families are all looking to call North York their home, and that combined with it’s close proximity to the city centre are making North York a booming, desirable location for development and investment.
With 4800 Yonge Street Condos, we see a development in a prime location. This neighbourhood has seen significant transformation in the last decade – with upscale offices, residences and mixed-use buildings popping up every year, adding to a rapid densification of the area. With a distinct downtown feel, and convenient transit, it’s easy to see why many are looking to set down roots in the area.
The Yonge and Sheppard hub is a primary location for employment and commercial industries, and will likely continue to grow in the 2020s, making real estate in the area a sound investment.
