Introducing Shops at One York

September 13, 2022

Menkes is proud to officially launch Shops at One York to the broader South Core Financial District, celebrating One York Street as a true shopping destination.

TORONTO, September 13, 2022 – Menkes Developments Ltd. (Menkes), in partnership with the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP) and Sun Life, is pleased to formally announce the rebrand of One York Street’s retail offering as the Shops at One York.

One York’s central position in the South Core and its direct access to Toronto’s PATH network have already made it an attractive destination for both Torontonians and visitors to the city, but with an exceptional roster of existing retailers and more big names coming over the next several months, One York Street is positioning itself as a true live, work, play destination. Most recently, the building announced a new lease with family-owned health food store Nature’s Emporium to complement its dining and retail offerings.

“We are thrilled to welcome Nature’s Emporium to downtown Toronto at the Shops at One York,” said Peter Menkes, President, Commercial/Industrial. “Nature’s Emporium has a highly tailored, unique offering in the natural supermarket and supplements category that we are certain will complement the retail offering at the complex, and be a very popular amenity among its residents and office workers.”  

In addition to Nature’s Emporium, later this year, One York Street will be home to One York Food Hall (O&B) on the fifth floor of the retail podium. The premier hospitality and entertainment company will operate this expansive casual dining space joining the building’s wide array of lifestyle, retail and dining options including: HealthOne, Pure Fitness, WINNERS, Dollarama, Trade Secrets, Kinka Izakya, South St. Burger, and the legendary comedy institution The Second City which is opening soon.

“Our team has been busy developing a range of bespoke food stalls featuring exciting, chef-driven menus.” said Andrew Oliver, President and CEO of Oliver & Bonacini Hospitality. “From classic crispy fried chicken to fresh and bright ceviche, we’re looking forward to satisfying the cravings of One York tenants, as well as welcoming food lovers from around the downtown core.”

Connected to Toronto’s comprehensive PATH network, the two million-square-foot One York complex includes a 35-story Class AAA office tower, two 70- and 66-story condominium towers known as Harbour Plaza Residences, a four-story retail podium with 170,000 square feet of commercial retail space, and a four-level underground parking garage.

“We believe One York Street is the ultimate live, work, play environment at the intersection of Toronto’s financial, entertainment and waterfront districts,” said Sean Menkes, Vice President, Office/Retail. “As office workers and visitors continue to return downtown, we are excited to welcome them along with the many neighbourhood residents to our rebranded and enriched retail experience at the Shops at One York.”

The following openings are expected in late 2022 and early 2023:
The Second City
Natures Emporium
One York Food Hall (operated by O&B)

We look forward to welcoming you to Shops at One York.
