Top 5 Reasons to invest in Lake & Town
Etobicoke is a former city that now makes up the western-most part of Toronto. A large vertical slice of the city, Etobicoke stretches from the Highway 407, areas like Clairville and Smithfield to the shores of Lake Ontario with regions like Mimico, Islington and New Toronto. Lake & Town in particular is nestled just west of Mimico, close to the shores of Lake Ontario.
Primarily a suburban region, Etobicoke is often characterized by large main streets, expressways and shopping malls, as well as idyllic residential streets nestled among the ravines of the city, and canopied by beautiful old trees. It’s eastern border is marked by the famously picturesque Humber River and Marshes, making Etobicoke a renowned spot for nature walks that pop in and out of the boroughs urban sprawl.
In the summer, head to nearby Colonel Samuel Smith Park to spend the afternoon cloud-watching and enjoying nature, and when winter comes, strap on those skates and hit the skating trail, a charming figure-eight rink that’s open most of the winter. Just a short drive, and you’re in the Etobicoke Valley Park, or hitting the greens at Toronto Golf Club. Taking the iconic Lake Shore Boulevard east will bring you right into the heart of Toronto, with seemingly endless entertainment, experiences, restaurants and nightlife.
Lake & Town is a convenient place for students too, with the Lakeshore Campus of Humber College practically next door, as well as Sheridan Campuses, UofT, Ryerson, all within short commutes. Families should also take now, as many excellent primary and secondary schools are nearby.
Further, short drives to a nearby IKEA, and the Sherway Gardens Mall means shopping, errands and even home decor are all at your fingertips!
This modern townhouse development is a bold new addition to the Etobicoke housing market. With 12 buildings all standing at 3-storeys, Lake & Town will take up a nice city block very close to the lakeshore with shared amenity space in the centre. The space in the centre is expected to be around 835 square metres, and feature shared spaces, green areas, as well as places to host events, outdoor patios, etc.
The community itself will be made up of 210 units. A townhome mix of 107 two-bedrooms and 103 three-bedrooms will be the primary units in the development. For residents with cars, 242 parking spots can be expected, one for each unit and 32 for visitors.

With a walk score of 78/100 and transit score of 81/100, this area enjoys a high standard of transit convenience.Easy connections to the Mimico GO train station and the TTC Subway Line 2 at Islington makes for great commutes throughout the rest of the city. And countless bus routes line the many roads and streets heading north and southbound from there. Etobicoke is also linked to MiWay, the Mississauga transit system, and is home to four Go Stations: Etobicoke North, Kipling Station, Long Branch and Mimico. A simple option for those headed into the city might be the Lake Shore Streetcar, which runs along the waterfront and boasts a travel time into the heart of Toronto in just half an hour.
Etobicoke is well connected to the many roads and highways that make up the GTA’s primary transportation system. A simple grid street layout makes access to Highways easy, whether is the 401, Canada’s largest, highest traffic highway with access to the northbound Highway 400, or the Queen Elizabeth Way in the borough’s southern partition, which turns into the Gardiner on approach to Toronto Downtown Core, and travels southwest to Peel Region and Halton Regions as it eventually takes travellers to Hamilton and around the Golden Horseshoe of Southern Ontario.
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. Homes like the ones at Lake & Town.
A rise in density along Bloor St. and Humber Bay has lead to a strong middle class and an increase in demand for condos and other more dense housing options.
With a healthy average selling price, pre-construction condos in the area sit in the early $400K range. New listings hold a $674 price per square foot and continue to grow. Rental rates are affordable, but the demand for homes continues to increase as once industrial lands are being repurposed and rejuvenated, creating new neighbourhoods and communities which appeals to younger families and professionals
Now might be one of the best times in the borough’s history to invest in condos in the Etobicoke area. As appreciation rates are rising, and the borough goes through this rebirth. Whether you’re a family looking to upsize, a student looking for an investment, or anyone in between, Lake & Town seems to be a solid choice for townhomes in the GTA.
