Tomas Pearce Interior Design to deliver new penthouses for former Maclean-Hunter building

A new condominium development by DAVPART Inc. is set to rise from the historic Maclean Publishing Company/Maclean-Hunter building at 481 University Avenue in Toronto.

With interiors by Tomas Pearce Interior Design, the United Building’s Penthouses and Skytown Collection is a mixed-use 52-storey high-rise that will feature the restored heritage structure with offices and retail at the base, and new residences above.

According to Davpart President & CEO David Hofstedter, “The unique Penthouses and Skytown Collection reflects the majesty of this landmark building. The design team at Tomas Pearce has spent many hours creating these magnificent spaces. Beautifully proportioned, there’s grandeur even in the smallest detail. These residences are extravagant and luxurious, designed to provide comfort and happiness to even the most discerning of purchasers. This collection offers a grand destination for those who would like to live in a work of art on Toronto’s only ceremonial boulevard.”

“The penthouse level stands out from the rest of the building,” said Melandro Quilatan, President and Co-founder of Tomas Pearce Interior Design. “Even though that’s luxurious, the penthouse floor takes it up to a different level.” About the two-storey Skytowns, Quilatan adds, “Imagine a home in the sky. Elegant. Modern. And most important, spacious. The skytowns are just that.”

Among the elegant appointments in the penthouses are 8-foot tall entry doors, porcelain and pre-finished engineered wood plank flooring, and custom-designed kitchens with a 12-foot cabinetry package and professional-grade Sub-Zero-Wolf appliance package. The skytowns feature 9-foot ceiling heights and chef-inspired kitchens with a Miele appliance package. Each skytown also comes with expansive windows and two spacious balconies.

All penthouse and skytown owners will have access to The United Building’s amenities including a party room, lounges, sauna and rain rooms, yoga deck, ideaspace, Zen garden and all-season reflection pool.
