The Residences of 488 University Avenue – Building Details
Despite being named “The Residences of 488 University Avenue,” the building is in fact a mixed-use property.
The ground floor is home to a shimmering 3-storey podium with retailers and a signature restaurant.
Above it are 18-floors of office space, while the remaining 37 levels are dedicated to residential suites.
While a lot of condos claim to be beautiful, 488 University Ave proves it with 4 International Property Awards.
These include Best Architecture, Best Residential High-Rise, Best Condo and Best Interior Design.
Inside and out, 488 University Ave is a winner.
488 University Ave Unit 3410 – The Space
It reveals that the condo is spacious and well-lit by wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows.
It also shows the quality and craftsmanship you can expect, from the sleek kitchen island to the sturdy hardwood floors.
The condo’s size can only be appreciated when stripped of all its furniture and accessories.
As a corner unit with a South-East exposure, residents have clear views of the CN Tower and Lake Ontario.
488 University Ave Unit 3410 – The Kitchen
The kitchen is clad in the finest materials, including marble counters, glossy cabinets, and a brick back-splash.
The kitchen is also very practical.
For example, it has a marble island with a sink, storage and room for meals.
Unit 3410’s kitchen is also outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, including:
- An integrated Libherr fridge and wine cooler
- An AEG stove, microwave and dishwasher
- A stacked AEG washer and dryer
488 University Ave Unit 3410 – Master Bedroom & Bath
It also features hardwood floors, pot-lights, sliding doors for easy access, and a custom-made closet.
And to top it off, the master bedroom incorporates a 5-piece ensuite bath.
If you prefer showers, the ensuite bath has one of those too, along with ceramic floors, an extra-long vanity, and pot-lights.
Oh, and did we mention the built-in TV and Bose speaker system?
488 University Ave Unit 3410 – Second Bedroom & Bath
Besides offering stunning glimpses of downtown Toronto, the floor-to-ceiling windows bathe the entire room in sunlight.
While it lacks an ensuite bath, there’s one right across the hall.
The bathroom mixes clean lines and cool colours with practical elements such as ceramic floors, pot-lights, a broad vanity, and under-sink storage.
And like the ensuite, it also contains a soaker tub with a detachable showerhead.
488 University Ave Unit 3410 – Den & Balcony
It can also be used as a guest room, storage area, library, rec room, or anything else you need (e.g. a walk-in closet or art studio).
At 165 sq. ft., the massive balcony has enough room for several pieces of furniture and accessories.
The only thing better than the scale is the scenery.
And on the other…
But the real magic happens at night…
