Life itself is a dance, with each year unfolding to reveal new, ever-increasingly daring moves. Adagio by Menkes pays tribute to the esteemed history of the 148-year-old building at 771 Yonge Street. There, Boris Volkoff, the famed Russian-born dancer, choreographer, director and teacher trained talented ballet dancers from 1930 to 1945. Revered as the “father of Canadian ballet,” Volkoff went on to co-found the National Ballet of Canada, and worked on co-productions with the Toronto Opera Company — today’s Canadian Opera Company.




Welcome to Adagio by Menkes, a luxury boutique condominium in the sought after neighbourhood of Yorkville. Designed as an elegant modern retreat in the heart of the city, and inspired by the distinguished history of the address, Adagio promises residents the definition of refined downtown living. Allow yourself to be transformed by its glamorous ambience, and enlivened by its proximity to Canada’s most prestigious shopping and dining district, right on your doorstep.

A 21st century architectural marvel, Adagio proclaims its poise and creativity as it ascends above Yonge Street. Architects Giannone Petricone Associates have taken care to capture the spirit of the vintage 1872 building. Its curved windows are transposed to the curving lines on the new building, and its rustic red brick is restored and carried through to the new podium. Menkes is honoured to offer you the rare opportunity to own a piece of Yorkville history.




Situated in the beating heart of Yorkville, Adagio is immediately surrounded by the premium amenities of Yonge and Bloor, and is only a short commute to the exclusive enclave of Rosedale. Within a 5 minute walk, residents can grab coffee at one of the many cafes, play tennis amid lush parkland, or enjoy an evening cocktail on a beautifully landscaped patio.




Classically refined yet full of character, Yorkville continues to be a destination for fashionable individuals seeking the best of high-end shopping, dining and culture. Walk the streets and alleyways to find the perfect dress at Maxi Boutique, enjoy the city’s best dining at Sassafraz and Alobar, or find the perfect gift at Tiffany. If you’re in the mood for an evening at home, Whole Foods and Pusateri’s make it easy, with an amazing selection of freshly prepared meals.

Anchored by the iconic Hudson’s Bay Company, the intersection of Yonge and Bloor is becoming ever more exhilarating, with new additions enhancing the streetscape. Nordstrom Rack and McEwan are now mandatory stops on any fashionista or foodie’s list, and nearby Eataly conjures the feeling of sitting in a cafe in Rome, dining on mouth-watering Italian cuisine. After lunch, stroll along Canada’s premier shopping street, the “Mink Mile” on Bloor West, for master-crafted leather goods at Louis Vuitton, classic jewelry at Cartier, ready-to-wear ensembles at Gucci, and other retailers that fulfill all of your shopping desires.



While Adagio is located in a lively downtown neighbourhood, it’s also close to sprawling parkland you can easily walk to. Just steps along Park Road is Lawren Harris Park, on the edge of the majestic Rosedale Ravine. Boasting 13.7 acres of open space, Ramsden Park is one of the largest parks in downtown Toronto. Tennis courts, a skating rink, shady mature trees, walking trails, green grass and plenty of outdoor seating make this park a welcome oasis.




From Adagio, you can access a range of premium amenities within minutes, on foot or by subway. Residents can enjoy a 1 minute walk to Bloor-Yonge Station, with the boutique shops, cafes and bistros of Yorkville all within walking distance.
