Menkes is releasing new podium suites at Gibson Square Condominiums in of North York City Centre. The collection of suites in the new release features 9’ ceilings and views to the adjacent historic Gibson House Museum and Park. Gibson Square will have convenient direct underground access to the North York Centre Subway Station and Empress Walk Shopping Centre, and it’s just a short walk to the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts, Mel Lastman Square, and the Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre. A multitude of shopping and dining opportunities are right in the neighbourhood.
Gibson Square, designed by Rafael Bigauskas Architects, will feature prominently on the North York City Centre skyline, with two 42-storey towers topped by architectural white roof caps that will be recognizable from miles away. The buildings will share a five-storey, mixed-use podium containing residential suites, retail shops and an extensive collection of amenities.

Among these are 24-hour concierge service provided from the two-storey lobby with its modern classic design. Making a grand statement, the lobby features a spectacular hand-blown glass chandelier and curving black granite staircase leading to the Gibson Club on the second-level. (Is that a Chihuly?)

north york city center is really booming... but it seems to be keeping a suburban highrise feel.

For the benefit of the uninitiated, it should be noted that this is about 15 km north of downtown.

Here is some perspective thanks to the condo queen of Toronto




Downtown Toronto is waaaay down the street.


Then we look in the opposite direction

Drove down the Yonge NYCC strip recently, and the amount of cranes and construction activity is impressive. For some reason these towers remind of something you'd find in Seoul (probably because of the odd roof element). Fitting because of the Korean retail presence.

Keep in mind that these towers are relatively large compared to everything that's been built in NYCC. They will have a huge impact and a promising podium.

Now if they can only add more streetfront retail to NYCC, it can almost be called a downtown in it's own right.

All these people moving in will be sure to help.

At it's current rate, excavation should be complete in another month or two.

Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?

I've been to the "The Galleria" at York Mills. Awesome supermarket, great selection of prepared foods. I go there whenever I'm in the area and craving a delicious Korean snack.

Nice, those cranes were installed over a month and a half ago, should have one or two basement levels completed by now.

They should have the small amount dirt removed from the hole by year end.

Thanks for moving this one over, I thought I asked for this one to get moved over in November.

But it's all good now!
