The Grand At Universal City is a new mixed-use high-rise condominium by Chestnut Hill Developments in Pickering. This new 37 storey pre-construction project with 482 residential units is located at Bayly St & Liverpool Rd intersection in Pickering’s vibrant Bay Ridges neighbourhood.
Investors can expect that this project will be conveniently served by transit and will be close to some of the best local amenities including DLive, one of the biggest entertainment centres coming to the GTA.
The Grand At Universal City Condos will be a shining pillar of contemporary design atop a remarkable podium circled by lush greenery and charming walkways.

This new development is known to provide its residents with luxury living. Some of the previous building interiors come with hardwood flooring, 9-inch ceilings, open-concept layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows to bring in the most natural light.
At this one-of-a-kind development, soaring ceilings will range from 8’ 5’ to 10’. Plus, a state-of-the-art subterra geothermal system with the latest heat pumps that utilize low-temperature energy in the ground will control the temperature in your home.
This system is significantly more efficient and better for the environment than loud, ineffective A/C and heating equipment which emit large quantities of carbon. It’s no wonder that sold-out success is the returning theme of Universal City.
Thoughtfully designed suites will range from 469 to 1026 square feet with a unit mix of one-bedrooms, one-bedroom plus dens, two-bedrooms, two-bedroom plus dens, and three-bedrooms.
