Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
At the conjunction of two remarkable Toronto neighbourhoods, Yorkville and the Annex, is a 20-storey boutique condo wrapped in glass and steel. Menkes Development has carefully considered the needs of young professionals, couples, executives and down-sizers who might want to shop at Hazelton Lanes or attend lectures at the University of Toronto, or be close to the political action at Queen’s Park.
From the moment you enter the large open lobby you are drawn to the white, curving staircase which leads to the 2nd floor recreational space.
