Mississauga has been coming into in to its own over the past decade with new skyscraping towers reshaping the city-core of TO's neighbour to the West. Recent notable additions like the distinctive Absolute World Towers and Limelight have set the stage for a dense and pedestrian friendly central Mississauga, and in fact several other developers are taking advantage of the opportunity to create a real downtown on land that was once farms.

Pinnacle Grand Park is being developed immediately west of Mississauga's core by Vancouver-based Pinnacle International, known for several projects in Downtown Toronto and in Mississauga now including 33 Bay, their now under construction Pinnacle on Adelaide and Pinnacle Uptown, and of course the proposal for the massive 1-7 Yonge site. The first tower of this two building complex located at Grand Park Drive and Burnamthorpe has lately reached the two thirds mark of its final height of 28 storeys, and we have recent photos courtesy of UrbanToronto Forum contributor Jasonzed.

The future 306ft-high tower will contain one through three-bedroom residential units ranging in size from 545 ft² to 1,123 ft². The 323 units in the building come with a series of design themes for buyers to choose from including Country Glamour, Midtown Couture, Urban Delight, Downtown Chic and Uptown Classic, all crafted by interior designer Tanner Hill and Associates. The building itself is designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects and will contain notable amenities like a Green Roof, Sauna, Swimming Pool, and Outdoor Terrace.

This first tower is expected to wrap up late this year. The second tower in the Pinnacle Grand Park complex is quite a bit larger—standing at 48 storeys and housing 469 residential units—and should be complete in 2015. We will keep you updated as both towers play their part in growing the new Mississauga skyline.
