The ACADEMY Condominiums is a signature project that was brought to fruition by LeMine Investment Group, Devron Developments and Skygrid Construction – a synergistic developer-builder team that embodies a fusion of diverse experience and fresh innovation. The team was particularly enthusiastic and zealous with creation of The Academy, as three executives are University of Toronto Scarborough Campus alumni that have experienced, first-hand, the shortage in housing. There was a collective devotion to give back to the campus and the community.
