Pinnacle International has launched sales at its second Mississauga project, Uptown, at the corner of Hurontario Street and Eglinton Avenue, with the first of two towers to be known as 'Crystal'. The 28-storey west tower will soon be joined by a 24-storey east tower, and followed eventually by 9 more towers and several dozen townhomes, all bordering a 15-acre park on the 36-acre site.
