The Pinnacle on Adelaide [map] by Pinnacle International will soon rise to 43-storeys at the corner of John Street and Adelaide, making it a major player in the neighbourhood’s march towards ‘cultural corridor.’
The people behind the project are marketing The Pinnacle on Adelaide as a passport to the nerve centre of Toronto – and with good reason. The building is a hop, skip and jump from any number of Toronto touchstones: the new TIFF Bell Lightbox, a plethora of theatres, the Air Canada Centre, Queen West shopping, and of course, tasty restaurant after tasty restaurant.
All this of course is for naught if the building doesn’t hold up it’s end of the bargain, but, from the sound of things, this one will.
Hariri Pontarini Architects drew up the plans in a way that they hoped would both contribute to, and draw from, the aforementioned vibrancy of downtown Toronto. In this same spirit, Janet Rosenberg & Associates designed The Pinnacle on Adelaide’s public plaza which will, reportedly, host a range of cultural programming.
For resting in-between all these glamorous and enlightening cultural happenings, the suites are there for ya. One, two, and three-bedroom layouts will range from 501 to more than 1000 square feet. Under your feet will be engineered hardwood floors, holding your dishes will be designer cabinetry, making your food will be stainless steel appliances and catching your eye will be floor to ceiling windows.
