Pinnacle International’s mixed-use 1 Yonge St proposal is still in front of the city for consideration, but that didn’t stop the architects from releasing a new set of renderings. Hariri Pontarini’s David Pontarini says this is a more detailed exploration of its six towers (good thing we stole those 3D glasses after watching Iron Man 3). This includes a clearer look at what the top of the buildings will look like, especially the one that stretches up 89 storeys. “It’s all part of the ongoing design work,” says David about the potentially landmark development, which’ll total 6.4M SF.
In there among the mix of towers is the old Toronto Star building. If this gets city approval, the folks in the newsroom better get used to an army of construction people in their midst. The Star HQ, built in 1970, will be re-clad, and another 10 storeys will be built on top.
