Designed by CORE Architects, the development consists of a 55-storey glass and steel tower atop a glass-jewelled podium. The project features interiors by internationally renowned II by IV Design, a grand residential lobby, retail and restaurant space and over 30,000 square feet of lifestyle amenities.

The surrounding neighbourhood is also filled with boutique shops, cafes and gourmet restaurants.

The 453-unit condominium is already 90 per cent sold, but a wide selection of suites are still available and for a limited time prospective homebuyers can take advantage of special incentives, prices and promotions by registering online.


The gorgeous Michigan unit is just one of the many floor plans still available. At 1,222 square feet, it’s one of the largest corner units available and features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a den — or optional third bedroom– off of the foyer. This bright, open-concept unit has wall to wall windows, a 25 foot balcony, and stunning unobstructed views of Lake Ontario and the downtown skyline.


Step inside and you’ll find a gourmet kitchen complete with island and breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, and your choice of quartz, marble, or granite countertops. A stainless steel appliance package is also included. Located adjacent to the kitchen, the spacious living room is ideal for entertaining with wrap around window walls and ample space for furniture.

The master bedroom is located off of the living room and includes large bright windows, a walk-in closet and a luxurious ensuite with stand up shower and freestanding tub. A second bedroom is situated on the other end of the suite and overlooks the balcony.

For more information on all available suites, register online, and visit the presentation gallery located at 393 University Avenue, open seven days a week from 10am to 8pm.
