Developed by State Building Group and Madison Homes, The Upper Canada is an 18-storey condominium tower soon to rise at Avenue Road and Lonsdale Avenue, offering affordable elegance just steps from the stately mansions and tree-lined streets of one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighborhoods – Forest Hill.

Here one is mere minutes from the charming shops and cafes of Forest Hill Village, as well as the exclusive stores and restaurants Bloor/Yorkville.

Long one of the city’s most prestigious streets, Avenue Road will welcome the addition of The Upper Canada Condominium and its modern architecture, with a look reflecting the fresh design thinking of its development team and featuring a distinguished selection of suite designs that have been thoughtfully designed for the most discerning of purchasers.

Behind its sleek and contemporary façade of timeless precast, classic brick and expansive tinted glass, The Upper Canada Condominiums will comprise a total of only 93 exceptional suites. Spacious and practical in their design, suites will range in size from approximately 1,000 to 3,000 square at prices ranging from the $700,000’s to $2 million respectively.

Standard luxury features in the well-appointed suites include 9’ and 10’ ceilings, bright expansive windows, large designer kitchens and eating areas, premium built-in appliances, private ensuite retreats, and more. Moreover, each two-bedroom residence incorporates both a den and an oversized balcony or a highly sought-after terrace offering fabulous views of the city and the mature treetops of the surrounding neighbourhoods.

Just past the intricacy of the brick driveway and the richness of the front landscaping, residents and guests will enter The Upper Canada under a gracious glass-faceted canopy. With classic granite walls flanking either side of the stately entrance, a world of refinement awaits within.

Upon entering The Upper Canada Condominium, you and your guests will be greeted by a 24-hour concierge and a lobby that captures the exquisite design aesthetic of The Upper Canada. The focal point is the fireside seating area that is set under an elliptical coffered ceiling whose curved lines are echoed in the choice of both furnishings and artwork.

Just beyond the lobby, The Upper Canada provides all, the amenities one would expect from a residence of this extraordinary level of quality – an array of social, fitness and recreational facilities which contribute greatly to the appeal of its leisurely, maintenance-free lifestyle.

Imbued with the ambiance of a grand hotel, the party room and lounge are ideal for entertaining, with kitchen/dining facilities, and opening onto the lush greenery of a beautifully landscaped expansive private outdoor terrace. An inviting swimming pool evokes a spa-like atmosphere where one can enjoy a swim, relax on a chaise lounge chair, or bask in the soothing comfort of the hot tub. A professionally equipped exercise room welcomes residents for their daily workout while an elegantly furnished guest suite is available to accommodate their overnight guests.

Adding considerably to the advantages of its location at the gateway to Forest Hill, The Upper Canada Condos is also just minutes from Yonge Street – both the tony retail environs of Bloor-Yorkville and the trendy corner of Yonge and St. Clair – as well as offering easy access to the TTC and major highways.

The Upper Canada Condos’ design team has been augmented by the talents of award-winning architects EI Richmond, responsible for many of the GTA’s most desirable condominium addresses, along with respected interior design firm, Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting. Handling sales for the condominium residence is the renowned Sotheby’s International Realty.

State Building Group prides itself on offering some of Toronto’s finest developments, both in new single family homes and condominium. Recognized for its exceptional floor plan and space designs, as well as outstanding customer service, State Building Group has demonstrated its long standing commitment to satisfying the needs of the discerning home buyer for over 40 years.

It has done so consistently at projects ranging from the luxurious single family homes of The Bridlepath of Thornhill to the upscale condominiums of Hillside at Yonge and York Mills. Superior interiors, upgraded finishes and exceptionally well-proportioned room sizes are integral features of all State-built new homes and condominiums, and The Upper Canada Condos will continue to reflect this commitment.

With its coveted location, stunning design and superb value, The Upper Canada brings affordable elegance to Toronto’s most affluent of neighbourhoods.
