It has only been about 5 months since the launch of Amexon Development Corporation's The Residences of 488 University Avenue. Since launching to the public at the beginning of September 2014, the Core Architects-designed development has already sold 75% of its condominium suites. The project includes a 37 storey addition atop an existing 18-storey office tower in Downtown Toronto. Located on the northwest corner of University Avenue at Dundas Street, the office floors will also be renewed during the redevelopment, while ground realm changes will add new direct subway connections and a restaurant.
