TORONTO is a construction site. For the last 5-10 years this city has been growing up, up and up – and shows no signs of stopping.
Case in point – the Pinnacle One Yonge site, formerly the home of the Toronto Star, is planning three massive towers not far from the waterfront.
The project – Phase One’s 65-storey tower. Phase Two – 95-storeys, and Phase 3 – 80-storeys. Phase One has been approved in principle.
Almost 2,000 residential units (including 120 affordable rental housing units) are proposed for phases 2 and 3, as well as 852 parking spaces and 2,228 bike parking spots.
Meanwhile, DAVID MIRVISH and architect FRANK GHERY are working on two towers & a contemporary art museum in the King West and Duncan Street area (92-storeys and 82-storeys).
And architect NORMAN FOSTER has his name on The One, developed by MIZRAHI DEVELOPMENTS at Bloor and Yonge (85-storeys). It will even have an exclusive postal code.
