The Empire Plaza is a 28-storey building dating back to 1990. The building is located at University Avenue and Wellington Street West. The Empire Plaza has 223 suites, ranging from 850 square feet to 2000 square feet. The Empire Plaza is the first condominium residence on University Avenue and is considered to be one of the finest residential addresses in Toronto's downtown core.
It is not only the address that sets the Empire Plaza apart, but also the building itself – designed by the award-winning architects Young & Wright. The building's sweeping circular structure and bowed facade of red granite and dark blue glass has created a proud landmark on the grand boulevard that is University Avenue.
33 University Avenue is the epitome of refined living - with 24-hour security, an onsite management team and a committed Board of Directors that have served to promote and enhance this distinguished condominium residence.
Upon approaching the entrance visitors are immediately struck by the beautifully landscaped exterior, the grand entrance, and the elegant marble lobby with domed ceiling. The building is served by three elevators plus a separate elevator for the six levels of underground parking. Acoustic consultants Barman Swallow participated in the design of the building to ensure that residents are well insulated from both exterior and interior noise.
For peace-of-mind, the video surveillance system covers all common areas. Resident access to the building, garage and lobby elevator is with an electronic key, and visitor access to the building is only via the main security desk.
The Empire Plaza is in close proximity to the Financial District, subways, the Rogers Centre and other downtown Toronto amenities.
Just minutes to Union Station, 33 University Avenue is at the hub of the Financial District and is easily accesible by the Gardiner Expressway. Work and play in this area, with the Entertainment and Theatre Districts a ten minute walk away. Here you can enjoy shows at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Roy Thompson Hall, Scotiabank Theatre, the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, and the Princess of Wales Theatre. The St. Lawrence Market is easily accessible via Front Street or the 504 King streetcar. Harbourfront and all its delights is also about a leisurely fifteen minute walk down the street.
