Red granite and blue tinted glass make up the rounded facade of the Art Deco inspired Empire Plaza condos. These are the first Toronto condos built on University Avenue and the building has become a landmark. If you are looking for a distinguished downtown Toronto condo that is central to everything, safe, spacious and gorgeous to boot, feast your eyes on Empire Plaza.
Most Notable Features
Suite Sizes and Layouts: The number of layouts available at Empire Plaza offers variety that may be missing from newer downtown condos for sale. The bowed front of the building creates architectural interest in the form of solariums and the layouts feature curves and angles instead of rectangular living areas, most suites are very spacious, too. In addition to the space between you and your neighbours, special attention was paid to acoustics during construction so you'll enjoy top-notch insulation from noise within the building and the bustle on the street.
Convenience: Empire Plaza has an elevator that takes you directly to the underground parking, but there is so much in the area, and even right in the building, that you could do fine without a car. You can grab a bite to eat at one of three restaurants and then pop into the spa on site before you pick up your dry cleaning and step out for the night.
Affordability: Make no mistake, these are well-designed, well- constructed, well-maintained downtown Toronto condos, but they boast among the lowest prices per square foot and the lowest maintenance fees in The Core. Great value for money.
Street level at Empire Plaza you'll find Tim Hortons to start your day off with a cup of coffee. You can pick up a sandwich from Subway or grab a bite at Su Shi C as well. La Belle Femme Spa & Salon is also in your building, along with a convenience store and The Wellington Club (GoodLife Fitness). If you're not in the mood to cook, there are so many options close by. Bardi's Steak House and Bymark would fit the bill for a nice meal out, or try Jack Astor's Bar & Grill or the OverDraught Irish Pub for something a bit more casual. Groceries can be found at Metro, Longo's or Luciano's No Frills a quick walk away. A short stroll takes you to the Rogers Centre and the ACC, or the Four Seasons Centre for Performing Arts along with many of Toronto's greatest attractions, including HarbourFront.
