Quote from the article:
Pinnacle vice president of sales and marketing Anson Kwok said the skyscraper war is not what’s motivating the company. The decision to reach even higher was an internal one, considering what would be best for the city and the location. It wanted to add “some more intrigue” to the skyline, he said, calling the tower “a piece of artwork for the city.”
Of course, having bragging rights as “the tallest building in Canada” can’t hurt a project’s sales pitch, especially at a time when mortgage rates are soaring and cracks appear to be forming in Toronto’s once unstoppable condo market.
There are still some units available for sale and prices at Pinnacle One Yonge range from around $900,000 to $3 million, Kwok said. The completed development will include a community centre with a pool and basketball court that will be operated by the city, he added.
“Toronto’s a world class city, so I think in the last 10 years, 40 storeys were pretty common, then you get to 60. To get to that next echelon of city, in terms of New York or Chicago, I think architectural interest is greatly important,” said Kwok.
Great shot! Prestige looks puny next to the bank towers, a perspective that's often lost from the island/Polson Pier shots because it's closer to the lake. A preview of things to come, when it will be dwarfed by Phase 2&3 towers.
Thank you! And agreed - it took me a seconds to notice it at first from that angle/height - like you said I'm also so used to seeing it dominate skyline shots from other angles but it'll be exciting to see it next to pinnacle - and phase 2 of sugar wharf as wellGreat shot!
