As the sun rises over Toronto for another day, the crane presiding over the Pinnacle One Yonge site is not the crane that generations of Monarch butterflies have come to flutter by before; this is a new crane, ready to take on the task of taking the building upwards into the ionosphere, just shy of the moon. In this image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor richsherb, the building has arrived at its twelfth floor, the uppermost hotel level, with a transfer slab to build now, in advance of the first residential floor. We are still waiting to hear back from the City as to whether this building will be allowed to grow beyond the approved 90 storeys to 105 storeys/344.58 metres tall, or somewhere in between.
