High-rise condos in Toronto
Welcome to the only address that mirrors the splendour of the world’s greatest avenues!
480 University Avenue, once the location of an office building, was repurposed to serve as the foundation for The Residences of 488 University Avenue. The construction was finished in 2019.
This mixed-use condominium was built by Amexon Development, a known leader in the residential development industry for over 35 years, located at 488 University Avenue, Toronto, ON. The development team includes renowned CORE architects and the visionary and creative eyes of II BY IV Design brought exquisite attention to detail—a thrilling design.
This 55-story structure, rising above a spectacular glass podium on one of Toronto’s oldest and grandest boulevards, will remain a hallmark of the Kensington-Chinatown district for decades to come.
What defines this location is what defines Toronto: sleek, energetic, and charming. The Residences at 488 University Avenue Condos by Amexon Development are now completed and located in Toronto’s neighbourhood, with a 99/100 walk score and a 100/100 transit score.
