Syruptrap.ca shares the sad news that another Luxury condo tower is to be torn down and replaced with a small independent bookstore:
Beloved Pinnacle Towers developer Jerry Gotham lamented the announcement in a Facebook post on Monday.
“Pinnacle Towers has been an integral part of the local community for the last seven years,” wrote Gotham.
“I am sad to announce today that the new owners, book lovers Daphne and George, will tear the building down in order to build a small independent neighbourhood bookstore.”
A frustrated Gotham told press that he wishes there was something he could do to save Pinnacle Towers.
“This 40-storey luxury condo development — the marble baths, the helipad, the green roof — was my life. To see it all come down like this is a damned shame.”
Several members of the community gathered in front of the demolition site on Monday to protest the announcement.
“This tall, expensive glass building is an important part of the cultural fabric of this city,” said Sheila Barthelby, creator of a “Save Pinnacle Towers” petition on Change.org, which as of Monday morning has garnered over 200 signatures.
