Coming Soon to Pickering

The Grand at Universal City by Chestnut Hill Developments

1496 Bayly Street, Pickering, ON L1W 1L8


Chestnut Hill Developments’ The Grand at Universal City Condos is coming to the town of Pickering.

One of the most successful master-planned communities, Universal City, introduces its latest addition in The Grand. The contemporary high-rise condominium by Chestnut Hill Developments sits atop a marvelous podium, surrounded by a lush landscape and pedestrian walkway. The new mixed-use pre-construction condo is found at Bayly St & Liverpool Rd intersection in Pickering’s eclectic Bay Ridges neighborhood overlooking the picturesque waterfront. An icon of modernity, the rolling steel waves dance toward the sky, offering impressive views of Pickering’s beautiful surroundings. 

Conveniently served by transit, The Grand will find itself close to some of Pickering’s finest amenities including DLive, soon to be one of the largest entertainment centers in the GTA.



Amenities Aplenty

The Grand At Universal City will have contemporary features, with the urbane architecture offering sophisticated sharp edges and undulated waves of sleek steel. Residents can expect to come home to luxurious features and finishes within the bright and airy living space, making every day delightful. 

Based on previous buildings, investors can expect open-concept layout condos with floor-to-ceiling windows that invite natural light and wrap-around balconies that take the indoors out. Modern kitchen features will boast stainless steel appliances, while variety in suite size will offer comfortable compatibility for anyone including young couples, families, and retirees. 

Investors can also expect versatility when it comes to other building amenities, including an outdoor terrace, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a serene yoga studio, a luxury outdoor pool, and a party room.

The Grand offers its residents the perfect environment for work and play to meet, providing a beautifully balanced lifestyle. The complex will also house a new mixed-use entertainment center, DLive, allowing residents to be moments away from a convention center, film studio, waterpark, amphitheater, office space, shopping, dining, and more.



Location And Neighbourhood

The City of Pickering is a hot-spot investment area thanks to its adjacency to downtown Toronto. Pickering is a lush and lively location with a vibrant and bustling city scene. The city celebrates stunning nature, cultural diversity, as well as exciting leisure and entertainment activities within an unmatched quality of community living.

The Grand at Universal City will be just two minutes from the Pickering GO Train, moving residents to Union Station in a swift 30-minute journey. The brand-new condominium makes for the perfect living space for anyone working in the busy downtown core but would prefer a serene lakeside neighborhood.

With Pickering Town Centre, Pickering SmartCentre, and Pickering Market just 5 minutes from the condominium, there are no shortages of shopping possibilities. Residents will also have access to world-renowned retail stores, a plethora of dining options, and services including healthcare, banks, travel agencies, and fitness centres. For students, Centennial College and Durham College are both only a 15-minute walk from the high-rise. For all things family, Pickering offers an abundance of schools, libraries, community centers, and closely situated after-school programs. 

Incredibly growth in Pickering is expected in the next few years making it a great investment opportunity. With 75,000 current residents, the city’s population is expected to grow by 97% within the next decade, taking its total population to 190,000. With the second biggest job market in the Durham Region, an airport in the works, and the upcoming Seaton Community in central Pickering, the city is currently preparing for a great influx of professionals across the board, with nearly 200,000 jobs being created with these projects alone. With the development sure to sell out fast, savvy investors will definitely want first picks on this pre-construction tower.
