Menkes Breaks Ground on Toronto Waterfront for LCBO’s New Head Office

100 Queens Quay East Tower Starts Construction Featuring 690,000 SF
January 12, 2018
Menkes Developments, along with partners Greystone Managed Investments and Triovest Realty Advisors, have broken ground on a new development at 100 Queens Quay East in Toronto.

The new development is the first phase of the Sugar Wharf community. The initial phase consists of a landmark office tower that will house the new LCBO head office.

The tower at 100 Queens Quay East will be a 25-storey building featuring approximately 690,000 square feet of Class "AAA" space. Designed by B+H Architects, the tower has been conceived with the objective of achieving the highest standards in environmental sustainability by striving for LEED Platinum certification. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) will be opening a new head office, flagship retail store and warehouse space at the property.

The expected completion date of the office tower will be the spring of 2021.

The office tower is the first phase of a vibrant new mixed-use community called Sugar Wharf, which will include employment, retail and residential uses, a new public elementary school and a new two-acre public park.

The Sugar Wharf community will be located on an 11.5-acre property, located at the northeast corner of Queens Quay East and Freeland Street, one block east of Yonge Street. This 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, including Union Station and the Financial District, which are within a 10-minute walk.

In addition to the new office tower at 100 Queens Quay East, the master-planned Sugar Wharf community will include significant retail and residential components. There will be approximately 300,000 square feet of multi-level commercial retail space, including the new flagship LCBO store, as well as a new grocery store.

The residential component of the community will include five condominium towers, varying in height from 64 to 90 storeys, and a mid-rise rental building. The development will also pay tribute to the previous historic uses on the lands by integrating key elements of the existing LCBO office building and warehouse into the project and the creation of a vibrant heritage mews.

Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto waterfront, with between 4,000 and 4,500 people working in the community, plus a resident population ranging between 7,000 and 8,000 people upon completion. All buildings at Sugar Wharf will be connected to Toronto's weather-protected indoor PATH pedestrian system, when the PATH network is expanded east of Yonge Street in the future.

Andrew Boughner of Menkes Developments Ltd. handles the leasing.
