University Suites consist of two 10-storey, mixed-use, residential developments on the high profile corner of Princess and University Avenues in Kingston, Ontario. Located steps away from a leading, world-class university in the burgeoning Williamsville district, the developments are currently being marketed to both students and investors alike. The uniquely shaped development site was viewed as a creative opportunity to address the historic context and architecture of downtown Kingston with a two-toned design utilizing a dark masonry base to complement the many heritage buildings in Downtown Kingston.
The North Building contains 195 residential units while the South Building contains 204 residential units. Both include a full suite of amenities that create a social bond: fitness facilities, study spaces on the ground floor and the roof, indoor and outdoor amenity spaces on the roof with views of the lake, these all become extensions of the residents’ personal spaces. University Suites also includes retail on the ground floor, adding to the streetscape without overwhelming its surroundings, and making a positive, social impact on this key intersection.
