December 24 2009 UPDATE: Menkes starts the registration process at their new Toronto condo, Pears on the Avenue (details, map).

October 8, 2009

Whats going on with the old Audi dealership at Toronto’s Avenue and Davenport? Check with Menkes, because they recently purchased the 2/3 acre property for roughly $14million (or, so I hear) from Liza Homes and Sunnyhill Gardens Inc. Hopefully we will see a cool condo going up soon, maybe I could afford a new home here one day.

Located in the coveted corner of Pears and Avenue, this will be an exciting project for the neighbourhood (which neighbourhood? A little bit Annex, a little bit Yorkville.. maybe even a little bit Rathnelly?*) and area (164 Avenue Road).

Looking for some more information? Thanks to Solaris, on Urban Toronto, for posting this information:

Check out this cool view of the property from Google’s Streetview (don’t know about Streetview yet? Check out it’s amazing power and how it will transform real-estate, here).

* Note: I have never heard of “Rathnelly” until I launched BuzzBuzzHome, but have come to love the name.
