3525 Kariya Drive
Elle Condo is a highrise condominium located at 3525 Kariya Dr, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L5B 0C2. This 31 storey tower was the third building in the Square One/City Centre area to be built and completed by Vancouver developer Amacon Corp.

Elle faces on to an open area of Kariya Drive, and is just a couple of blocks away from the very busy Square One Shopping Centre.
The Elle condominium consists of a single 31 storey tower which is built over an attractive podium. It is connected with its sister condos Eden Park and Eve, by a drive-through/walkway that runs from Kariya Drive to Hurontario Street.
