Writing with Light

The “Marilyn Monroe” Towers

These twin tower skyscrapers are part of a 5 tower development in Mississauga just west of Toronto. These are residential condominiums and at 50 and 56 stories, the tallest of any building in a North American suburban city. The Absolute Towers are part of the Absolute City Centre but they’ve been dubbed the “Marilyn Monroe” towers due to their curves.

    • Thanks. I didn’t realize they had this nickname until I started doing a little research on them.

    What amazing structures and just live the nickname. I bet they would look really cool at dusk if there were enough lights on in the apartments.
