Nestled in the heart of Yonge and Eglinton, one of the City’s hottest, growing neighbourhoods, residents are settling into their new home, The Eglinton, Menkes’ recently delivered midtown project.
The striking 34-storey glass tower designed by Giannone Petricone Associates is set on the south side of Eglinton Avenue East, at 161 Eglinton, just blocks from the corner of Yonge and Eglinton.
Residents are ready to live their best lives in their vibrant new community, which already boasts some of Toronto’s best entertainment venues, gourmet restaurants, boutiques, retail services, schools and corporate head offices, offering occupants the ultimate in convenience. Transit is a top priority these days and it’s easy to get to any part of the city from the building, which is in close proximity to both the Yonge TTC subway line, as well as the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (currently under construction).
Although the neighbourhood abounds with lifestyle choices, The Eglinton offers an impressive array of desired in-house amenities designed by Mike Niven Interior Design, including a state-of-the-art wireless lounge with private entertainment pods featuring Wi-Fi and High Definition screens; party space with dining area and gourmet catering kitchen; billiards room; theatre and fitness studio.
The area, once commonly referred to as Yonge & Eligible- due to its popularity with young single professionals - is now one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, suited to any lifestyle. Recognizing the trend towards condo family living, The Eglinton features a colourful 400-square-foot dedicated kids’ room where parents and their children can escape from their suites, to explore, play and make new friends.
NAK Design Group has created the ideal outdoor setting for socializing or relaxing, with a landscaped terrace with sun deck, lounge seating, barbecue facilities and outdoor dining area, overlooking Forest Hill and North Toronto and the city skyline south to Lake Ontario.
The gorgeous interior elements are matched only by the exterior landscape design, created by NAK Design Group. The Eglinton boasts a stunning landscaped outdoor terrace, featuring a sun deck, lounge seating, barbecue facilities and an outdoor dining area, all with spectacular views overlooking the homes of Forest Hill, North Toronto, or the office towers south to the Lake.
