The Sugar Wharf community will be a new mixed-use waterfront community developed by Menkes Developments. It will be located on an 11.5-acre land at the northeast corner of Queens Quay East and Freeland Street, one block east of Yonge Street. The Sugar Wharf development will consist of an office building, 5 condominium towers, retail space, a new public elementary school and a new 2-acre public park. Currently, the site is occupied by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) with three buildings, a retail store, a four-storey office building and a warehouse facility.
The prominent location offers both the exciting lifestyle benefits of being on the waterfront, as well as convenient access to all the amenities of the downtown core. The Sugar Wharf community will have direct indoor access to the Union Station and the PATH. The Financial District is simply within a 10-minute walk.
The ground-breaking ceremony for the Sugar Wharf office building at 100 Queens Quay East was held early January 2018. Mayor John Tory was at the ceremony, remarking that “This development represents confidence in our city. I want to thank Menkes and partners for helping reimagine Toronto and build up the city. Dynamic developments like this make Toronto attractive for jobs and investment and reaffirms why we’re the best place in the world to live, work, play, and invest.” The office building will bring 690,000 square feet of commercial space to the site when it opens in 2021, with approximately 615,000 square feet for offices and 75,000 square feet for retail. LCBO is confirmed to be an anchor tenant and will occupy approximately 200,000 square feet of office space, while at street level a 25,000 square feet flagship LCBO retail store will replace the store currently occupying the west end of the redevelopment site.
Phase 1 of the Sugar Wharf Condos will be located at the quadrant of land behind the office building. There will be 2 condominium buildings currently proposed to be 64 and 70 storeys.
On the quadrant of land behind the public park will rise the phase 2 of the Sugar Wharf Condos, as well as the public elementary school. The phase 2 condos will consist of 3 towers currently proposed at 77, 87, and 90 storeys.
