Deciding on the right condo to buy isn’t easy when there are so many great options in Toronto. To help make your homebuying search a bit easier, we break down each of our Empire condo communities to give you an idea of what life is like in the neighbourhood, some features of the building and what type of resident would call it home. Read on to discover if MaverickMavenPhoenix or Quay House most aligns with your lifestyle preferences and personality.

Empire Maverick

The people: A Maverick thrives in the hustle and bustle of city life — they like being in the thick of the action and in the know about all the latest happenings in Toronto’s core. If you’re a Maverick, you’re an urbanite, foodie, social butterfly and experience seeker at heart.


The neighbourhood: Living on King Street West means that you’ll be surrounded by trendy shops, local boutiques, entertainment, and social hotspots. Here’s where you’ll find some of the best bars and cocktail spots in the city, and enjoy live music, theatre and sporting events just moments from home.


The residence: From its outdoor lounge, fitness centre and glam room to its exclusive resident bar, Maverick’s amenities are designed to keep up with your social calendar and lifestyle. Standing 49 storeys tall, the residence features a collection of 1 to 3-bedroom suites. Here, you’ll feel at home being high up in the sky and keeping tabs on your city at all times.

Empire Maven

The people: Maven attracts those who want to live in a sophisticated, upscale neighbourhood surrounded by peaceful luxury and charm. It’s designed to elevate and enhance the lives of its affluent residents by catering to their every lifestyle need.


The neighbourhood: Avenue Road and Lawrence is known for its tree-lined vistas, intimate feel, boutique shops and close proximity to downtown. A feeling of discovery is what makes the neighbourhood so alluring, whether enjoying the nearby gardens and trails, taking in streetscapes or simply walking around.


The residence: The building has been designed to cater to the unique tastes of its residents. It features a rooftop patio with panoramic views, a contemporary social room, a boutique gym, as well as hotel-like guest suites. Rising seven storeys high, Maven is a boutique residence with a classic façade that elevates the local streetscape.

Empire Phoenix

The people: Phoenix is perfectly placed in Etobicoke’s Mystic Pointe neighbourhood for those who’d like to be a bit more removed from the city’s core, but still close to Toronto’s action. It’s catered to those who live an outdoorsy, active lifestyle and want to carve out their own little piece of tranquility by the water.


The neighbourhood: Phoenix’s residents are surrounded by tree-lined streets, parks and the best of waterfront recreation. With Humber Bay Shores just a short walk away, there’s always plenty to see and do in the area, including frequenting nearby restaurants and walking, running and biking along the shore.


The residence: Phoenix’s garden suites offer the best of both worlds — they have the same look and feel as a townhome, but still allow residents to revel in the perks of condo living. Panoramic views of Grand Avenue Park can be admired right from home, or residents can take advantage of the on-site pool and spa. Everything about Phoenix promotes wellness and self-care.


Empire Phoenix is sold out. A huge thanks and congratulations to everyone who has made this new community in South Etobicoke home.

Empire Quay House

The people: Quay House caters to those who want to be in the heart of the city, while still being surrounded by nature and all its beauty. It’s designed for a new generation of Torontonians who want serenity and peace, but don’t want to wander too far.


The neighbourhood: Toronto’s Queen’s Quay East neighbourhood is close to it all — employment, education and recreational opportunities. It’s minutes away from Toronto’s most beloved venues and attractions including Sugar Beach, the Distillery District, Scotiabank Arena and the St. Lawrence Market. Here, you’ll find a connectedness to nature that’s hard to find in the city, close to parks and trails, and just steps away from Lake Ontario.


The residence: With a fitness and yoga studio, co-working lounge, and bookable party room, Quay House is well-suited to a modern resident. Standing 21 storeys tall, the building features units ranging from studios to 3-bedroom suites.
