Upon its founding in the middle of the 20th Century, Menkes Developments was focused on the planning and construction of single-family homes. While the company continues to develop this form of housing, they have also embraced ongoing trends in the GTA real estate market. In particular, they have in recent years shifted towards the creation of mixed-use communities-ones that are based on walkability and excellent transit access.
Menkes Developments has been owned and operated by the Menkes family throughout its existence, and they continue to have an active role in its day-to-day operations. The company has made the inclusion of environmentally-friendly features in their buildings a top priority (with several of their buildings receiving LEED Platinum or Silver certification), and has received numerous industry sustainability awards. Finally, the Menkes family recognizes the importance of giving back to the communities and neighborhoods of which their company is a part. To that end, they have donated to an array of local charities and nonprofits throughout the region.
