Coming soon to Emerald City in North York, Fifth on the Park is the second tower in phase two, following The Colours of Emerald City, now under construction. When the project launches this fall, Fifth on the Park will be the the fifth tower in the master-planned community by Elad Canada.

A VIP preview is scheduled for Saturday, November 14th at the sales centre located across from Fairview Mall. Starting at 12pm, guests can take advantage of special preview pricing and incentives including cash back and suite upgrades. The event is by appointment only, so be sure to register today to confirm your attendance!


Situated at Don Mills Road and Sheppard Avenue, Fifth on the Park will rise 24 storeys above one of North York’s highest point atop a three storey podium. As a result of the land’s grade, the drop-off area and main lobby entrance of the residence is one floor higher than Don Mills Road.

“The lower level links to The Colours of Emerald City shared amenities and is still infused with some natural light because it is still slightly above the adjacent street level,” explains Len Abelman, a principal at WZMH Architects. “The podium helps to integrate Fifth on the Park with the surrounding streetscape so that the tower scale does not seem overly imposing to pedestrians.”

Over on the south side of the project, the developer is building a new street in order to ease traffic congestion from Don Mills Road. The road also separates Block B from Block C, the third phase of Emerald City.


When designing the structure, the architects created an exterior design that’s unique yet still relates to the other buildings with the use of a similar materials. The result is a contemporary slender point tower that blends harmoniously within its surroundings.

“Fifth on the Park is situated on the new curved street that connects Parkway Forest to Don Mills Road in the master plan,” said Abelman. “Rather than totally individual buildings, we have designed unique exteriors from a similar palette of materials that relate to each other.”


In addition, the south face of the tower is expected to curve along the street and is clad in different shades of glass creating an interesting juxtaposition of angles, curves and hues that further differentiates it from its neighbours.

“We divided the large form of the tower into multiple planes by using two shades of glass on the building facade,” said Abelman. “Combined with trees, plantings, signage and storefronts, this building will animate the streetscape and surrounding community.”


Careful attention to architectural details continue inside where suites boast innovative design elements like flex rooms which can be used as a den, home office, playroom, studio or dining space. Another is the upgraded option of a flexible kitchen island in certain units that feature an expandable pull-out section to serve as a workspace or dining table. Most suites also have a terrace or balcony with some overlooking a beautiful park or city views.


When the Fifth on the Park begins occupancy in 2018, residents will have access to a wealth of on-site amenities. Typical condo amenities like a party room, fully-equipped fitness centre, swimming pool, saunas, and an outdoor patio and terrace are all included. However, Elad has gone a step further by adding a WiFi Café Lounge, an arcade and game centre and even a karaoke/theatre room.


In addition, residents of the community will be steps from the newly opened Parkway Forest Community Centre, across the street. This state-of-the-art facility features a full-size gymnasium, weight room, dance studios, running track, craft and meeting rooms, youth lounge, commercial teaching kitchen, YMCA-run daycare centre and a rooftop garden. An aquatic centre and outdoor pool are also slated to open next fall. That’s on top of the other schools, shops, services and public transportation options all within walking distance from the property.

Prices at Fifth on the Park start in the mid-$200,000s with the project scheduled to host a VIP preview opening on November 14th. Don’t miss out, register online to attend!
