Live, Work, Play at Menkes’ Newest Community Coming Soon to Yonge and Sheppard.
Developer Menkes is seeking an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) to permit a mixed-use tower at 4800 Yonge Street, a 0.415 hectare site situated on the southwest corner of Yonge and Sheppard. The application aims to amend zoning for the subject site, which is designated in the North York Centre Secondary Plan (NYSCP) as a Mixed Use Area, and does not currently permit residential uses.
The building’s large rectilinear podium—similar in massing to the earlier Oxford plan—would offer 5 storeys of commercial space, with 3,493.65 square-metres of retail on the first 2 levels and 8,193.92 square-metres of office space on the 3 upper levels. Below ground, the building would be served by a 6-level parking garage that would also include space for 578 bicycles, accessed via an integrated driveway system entered from Bogert Avenue.
