High-rise condo in Toronto

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 condo was built by Amexon Development, a known leader in the residential development industry for over 35 years. The development team includes renowned CORE Architects and award-winning interior design firm II BY IV 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.
