The United Building - University and Dundas

Poised to offer a rare opportunity to live on Toronto’s University Avenue, Davpart Inc. will soon launch sales at The United Building. Anyone interested in living in this mixed-use development at 481 University (at Dundas) will want to register soon. Occupying the corner that was home to the Maclean Publishing Company/Maclean Hunter complex in the 20th century, The United Building will be the largest architectural heritage retention development in North America. The rare collection of condominium residences will occupy a new tower set atop two of the existing commercial/office/retail buildings. In addition to a prestigious University Avenue address, residents will enjoy one of Toronto’s most convenient and historically significant locations.

Commercial office and retail space will be preserved in the restored heritage structure up to the 10th floor, from which the new 44-storey residence will rise. Residents will have direct access to St. Patrick’s TTC station from inside the building, plus the subway and 505 streetcar are at the doorstep. They will also be able to walk to an array of local amenities including parks, shops, restaurants, nightlife, entertainment venues, hospitals, Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto City Hall, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Grange Park, Chinatown, Ryerson University, University of Toronto, Eaton Centre and the Financial District.

Davpart enlisted B+H Architects and heritage consultant ERA Architects to help create The United Building, which will add an architectural icon to the area. The team is going to extreme lengths to preserve the exteriors of the buildings constructed in 1928 and 1961. Classically contemporary interiors are by Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting Inc. Building amenities include a luxurious lobby featuring 24/7 concierge service; a pool with fireplace; indoor/outdoor pool deck with sun loungers; fitness centre, sauna and rain room overlooking the courtyard; sports lounge; all-season reflecting pool; Zen garden; plus a party room, fireplace lounge and barbecue dining on the terrace. Suite choices will range from studio to one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom designs, some with a den, flex or media room, and some two-storey plans.

Davpart Inc. is a full-service real estate investment and management company established in 1993. Its reputation for quality and excellence is known in the industry. The company’s first residential project, Avro Condominiums, sold out in just a week and is now under construction. To be among the first to purchase a suite at The United Building, time is of the essence. Register today at
