Located at the intersection of University Avenue and Dundas Street West, the Residences of 488 University Avenue offers prospective home buyers a highly desirable location in downtown Toronto. With a wide selection of local amenities and attractions like the The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Art Gallery of Ontario and the Eaton Centre nearby, there’s never a shortage of things to do.


However, 488 University’s ideal location is far from its only highly appealing quality. The development was recently recognized at the International Property Awards, based in Essex, England. The 453-unit condominium by Amexon Developments was awarded with four prestigious awards including:

Best Architecture – Multiple Residences
Best Residential High-Rise Development
Best Condominium Canada
Best Interior Design Canada

Judged by a panel of over 80 developers, architects, designers and other real estate professionals from around the world, the International Property Awards cover every aspect of residential and commercial real estate including architecture and interior design.

“We are extremely proud of what we are creating at The Residences of 488 University Avenue,” said Jason Shiff, Executive Sales Manager at Amexon. “We share these awards with our valued partners in the development, and know these honours are testament that we are all undertaking a very special, standalone condominium development not only Toronto, but now recognized throughout the world.”


Rising 55 storeys above Toronto’s iconic University Avenue, the CORE Architects-designed glass and steel tower sits atop a glass-jewelled podium with a grand residential lobby, retail and restaurant space as well as direct access to the St. Patrick subway station.


Inside, the development boasts luxuriously appointed interiors by renowned design firm II by IV Design, including over 30,000 square feet of hotel-inspired lifestyle amenities. That includes the two storey Sky Club with a resort-style spa, indoor and outdoor pools, a squash court, yoga studio, screening room and sun deck.


Although the development is over 90 per cent sold, a wide selection of suites are still available. Be sure to register online, and visit the presentation gallery located at 393 University Avenue, open seven days a week from 10am to 8pm.
