Project Summary

Live life unscripted, connected to everything that makes Toronto energetic, vibrant, and unique. Rising in the heart of the city, Elektra by Menkes is a striking new condominium that places you in the center of the action. A community awash with exceptional freedoms and experiences available only to those who live in the core. Everything Toronto begins here, providing a truly electric lifestyle located conveniently close to work and surrounded by phenomenal shopping, extraordinary dining, and boundless entertainment opportunities.


This property currently known as the Filmores Hotel has a longstanding history with the City of Toronto. It was built more than 100 years ago and has changed ownership throughout the years. Based on its 20th Century Edwardian style architecture, the city recently deemed it a heritage site which means that it is recognized by the city for its historical and cultural values, it also means that its historic architecture will be preserved.

Menkes and Core recently purchased this property and the surface parking lot beside it because they saw that this site has been underused for the last few years.

They saw an opportunity to preserve this building while turning into a vibrant place to live. Menkes has partnered with Giannone Petricone Architects, one of the most well-known and reputable architects in the city, to create a new landmark that will add many residential units to the area.

Based on the Elektra Condos renderings, we know that the Filmores Hotel will be preserved and seven additional floors will be built above it. We can expect a podium to hold retail and possibly office space while the rest of the tower will create space for residents. Menkes, as a reputable builder, is known for creating residential suites with modern features and finishes as well as providing state-of-the-art amenities and we can expect nothing less from this development. At the moment, we don’t know the height of the building or how many units will be offered, however, we will update this page with that information as soon as it becomes available.

Location & Neighbourhood

Elektra Condos will sit in the urban neighbourhood of the Garden District in east Toronto. This neighbourhood is considered a family-friendly area because it offers many low-rise homes, local schools and is considered a quieter part of the city compared to the bustling streets of the downtown core. What makes this area an ideal place to live is that it’s just minutes from the vibrant streets of downtown Toronto. This development will be a great option for families and young professionals that work downtown and want to come home to a quieter part of the city.

This area offers an incredible Walk Score of 95 out 100 and has everything from high-end restaurants, eateries, cafes, nightlife, supermarkets, boutique shops and big box stores. Additionally, there are many entertainment venues and things to do in this area that are just walking distance from this development. Some of which include Yonge and Dundas Square, CF Toronto Eaton Centre, Nathan Phillips Square, Massey Hall and Ed Mirvish Theatre. Ryerson University and George Brown College is just a 10 minute walk away, making this development a great option for students.

This area is also near high-density employment districts such as the Financial District that can be reached in just 7 minutes.

The  area also offers a perfect Transit Score of 100 which means that future residents will have access to the best public transit in the city. Residents here don’t have to worry about owning a car instead they will be able to easily and conveniently travel around the city.

There are many streetcars that run throughout this development and Dundas Station is just an 8 minute walk away. This station runs on the Yonge-University Line 1 and will take commuters to Union Station in a quick 4 minutes. This development will be built in a hotspot of the city with many convenient urban amenities close by making it a prime investment opportunity.
