SkyTower condos to become Canada’s tallest
PINNACLE INTERNATIONAL — Toronto’s newly announced SkyTower from Pinnacle International will be 95 storeys tall.

TORONTO — Pinnacle International has announced it will be constructing Canada’s tallest residential condominium tower as part of its Pinnacle One Yonge development in Toronto.

The SkyTower will be 95 storeys — 313 metres — in height, stated a Feb. 12 release.

PINNACLE INTERNATIONAL

The tower, designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, will include more than 800 condominium suites in layouts ranging from 520 to 2,300 square feet, with prices starting from just over $800,000.

Suites will be designed by Tanner Hill and Associates. Amenities will include a pool, yoga studio, games centre, party space, outdoor barbeques and lounge areas.

SkyTower will be the second of three tall towers at Pinnacle One Yonge. Its launch follows the release last year of The Prestige, a 65-storey condominium tower that is now under construction. Details of the third tower have not yet been released.

There will be approximately 2,200 condominium suites between the three buildings at the 4.4-million-square-foot development. Other uses will be 1.5 million square feet of office space, 160,000 square feet of retail, a 250-room hotel, a 50,000-square-foot community centre and a 2.5-acre public park.

“An iconic address like One Yonge demands an iconic architectural statement,” said Pinnacle’s vice-president of sales and marketing Anson Kwok in the release. “We knew this location demanded something elegant and distinctive.

“Our approach to this phase, and the other elements of this master-planned development, was predicated on a commitment to not just merely add yet another condo to the downtown core. Instead, we recognized the unique privilege provided by this site to forever reshape the Toronto skyline.”
