Pinnacle International has submitted an application for Site Plan Approval to the City of Toronto for the second phase of its Pinnacle Etobicoke development on Dundas Street west of Kipling subway and GO station. The multi-phase development already has its first condominium tower—Cypress at Pinnacle Etobicoke—under construction, while Phase 2 represents the next two towers sprouting from a shared podium, with three more podiums to sprout paired towers—nine towers in total—before the development is complete.
The buildings of the entire development are designed—so far at least—by Turner Fleischer Architects. The phase 2 towers—39 storeys/126.05 metres tall to the east, and 43 storeys/137.85 metres tall to the west—will sprout from a 6-storey podium in the southeast corner of the site. Each tower has approximately 732 m² floor-plates, making them a little slenderer than the typical 750 m² towers in Toronto. A total of 828 suites are planned across the two towers and podium, with a unit mix of 482 one bedrooms (58.2%), 248 two bedrooms (30%), and 98 three bedrooms (11.8%). Nine ground level units will have direct access from the exterior.
Indoor amenities totalling 1,656 m² are planned on the first and second floors plus on the seventh floor where a 576 m² roof deck will also be found. Another 4,224 m² of outdoor amenity space is planned at ground level on the extensive property.
Phase 2 will be located along the south side of a new internal street—Thomas Riley Road—that will connect all nine towers of Pinnacle Etobicoke plus the five adjacent towers of Concert Properties' Kip District Development, to Dundas Street to the north and Shorncliffe Drive to the west. Between this phase and Phase 3, a space frame is planned to provide some shelter above the garage entrance ramp as seen to the lower right in the image above. To the southeast of the buildings is a ribbon of outdoor amenity space atop the garage, while an easement for a potential westerly extension to the TTC's Line 2 subway is immediately adjacent, next to the CPR Milton rail subdivision.
In the image above, the first phase Cypress building can be seen 'ghosted' to the left, while another ghosted building represents a tower at the Kip District site. Between Thomas Riley Road and Dundas Street in front of Phase 2, a new public park is planned, indicated by the treed light green area. The Phase 3 and subsequent towers will be built to the west, starting in the blank white space on the right of the image above. Below, a view looking southwest towards Cypress at Pinnacle Etobicoke shows the current state of construction on that 25-storey tower. It's 8-storey podium is topped off.
The whole of the plan for Pinnacle Etobicoke can be seen in the south-facing image below, with Cypress the furthest non-ghosted building to the left, and Phase 2 the two tallest towers just to the right of Cypress. The full park area can be seen at the centre of the site below, bisected by a road connecting Dundas to Thomas Riley and to the garage entrance between Phases 2 and 3. Only the Pinnacle Etobicoke buildings facing directly onto Dundas Street are planned to contain retail at ground level, while the Phase at the corner of Dundas and Shorncliffe will also boast office space on its podium levels.
While a a 5-to-10 minute walk to Kipling subway and GO station, the Pinnacle Etobicoke site also has multiple buses stopping along Dundas in front of the site to make access to Kipling station and the TTC's service area easier, including the Airport Rocket heading to Pearson. MiWay and GO buses also serve Mississauga and other points west from Dundas Street.
