  1. An ad today in the Real Estate section of the Globe advertises the next phase of the Pinnacle project, with the grotesque name Success Tower. The ad looks like it was designed by a grade eight student, but the building looks reasonable. And big, 50 floors. Sorry, too big to scan.

  2. I think someone posted the rendering of that tower months ago somewhere on UT.

    I walked by the site a couple of days ago and the project signage is up for the third phase. I don't think the name matters, it will just be another phase of the pinnacle centre.

    I've been impressed by what the builder has done with the base along Yonge St. Very wide sidewalks with large planters and gardens and nice brick work in the sidewalks. More street lighting is on the way (someone should snap a few photos).

    Also at 18 Yonge the right turn ramp/lane has been removed (from Yonge turning right onto Lakeshore) and is being replaced with once again extra wide sidewalks. It looks like the city and builders are getting it right in trying to improve the pedestrian realm, despite the extremely hostile territory under and around the gardiner. My only disappointment is despite all the extra wide sidewalks, one still has to travel in a very thin sidewalk under the tracks - it's too bad a large teamway similar to the west side of Bay Street isn't possible in this location under the train tracks.

    Pinnacle is also cladding the concrete base columns, which is relatively rare in TO projects (viz. Pharmacy) with what looks like brushed steel.

    don't know what else they'd be drilling for on the site (I do recall the other two towers were built 'on spec')
  12. Whenever I read "Success Tower" I get an image of a very bad powerpoint presentation. You know, one with excess use of MS Clipart. KEYS TO SUCCESS! STRATEGIC PLANNING!

    Other buildings on this project started construction before they hit 50% in sales, so I would not be too surprised if construction was actually under way.

    Maybe they're using the name to sell to Chinese buyers. Most building, street, and neighbourhood names in places like China and Hong Kong have to do with things like success, good fortune, wealth, longevity, etc. to make them more appealing.

    Does that mean we can look forward to "Longevity Place Phase 2" some day?
