Completed in 2005, University Plaza is a 16-storey luxury condo building located at the southwest corner of Richmond Street and Simcoe Street. Its namesake, the powerhouse developer Plaza
, is one of the first condominium developers and builders in Toronto to include such finishes as granite counters and floors, marble bathroom counters and floors, halogen lighting, undermount sinks, porcelain tile, engineered hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances as standard features rather than costy upgrades.
Offering 320 suites with designer upgrades, this deluxe boutique building consists of studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments. It also boasts one of the most impressive indoor / outdoor rooftop club facilities in downtown Toronto, with breathtaking views of the city skyline, and is across the street from the famed Shangri-La Hotel.
