Located at Don Mills Road at Forest Manor Road, Fifth on the Park is the second tower in phase two of Elad Canada’s master-planned Emerald City in North York. Earlier this month, we looked at the tower’s contemporary architecture by WZMH Architects. This time, we’re taking a peek at the Emerald City presentation centre to check out the new Fifth on the Park model suite designed by award-winning interior design firm II BY IV Design.

Designed and decorated by Dan Menchions, founding partner at II BY IV Design, the model suite showcases the development’s design details and construction quality. Using standard finishes like wide, long-plank laminate floors mixed with warm tones and subtle splashes of colour, Menchions and his team have created an inviting space that is sure to appeal to a wide range of homebuyers.

Other standard features at Fifth on the Park include nine foot ceilings, stainless steel and integrated appliances, porcelain tile floors, and soaker tubs in certain units. The palette in the model suite represent one of four pre-selected packages purchasers can choose from.

“The model shows the quality and execution of Fifth on the Park’s suite finishes,” said Menchions. “Most of the furniture is mid-modern with a slightly Asian flair in its simplicity and styling. The look is uncluttered and calming.”


To inspire prospective homebuyers and show how they can personalize their suites Menchions created a feature wall in the living room that wraps into the bedroom. The kitchen features flat-panelled contemporary cabinets in a blonde wood colour are complemented by elegant quartz countertops and a linear-tile porcelain backsplash. The kitchen also has an optional movable island for increased functionality.

“The optional movable island, offered as an upgrade in select units, is on casters and incorporates an extension that can fold down or up, depending on how many will be dining,” said Menchions. “It also has storage in it and is a great example of functionality in this space.”


Inside the master bedroom, traditional side table lamps are replaced with space-saving wall sconces while a wood wall surround cradles a headboard with a sleek asymmetrical upholstered pattern.


The II BY IV Design team also designed the development’s suite of in-house amenities which include a modern lobby with concierge, WiFi lounge, indoor pool, karaoke room and arcade room. Residents will also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, yoga room, lounge and dining room with kitchen, as well as an outdoor patio with barbecue terrace.

Suites at Fifth on the Park are priced from the mid $200,000s and range in size from 486 square feet to 818 square feet. To see the model suite for yourself, visit the Emerald City presentation centre located on Sheppard Avenue, east of Don Mills Road, across from Fairview Mall.
