The roof of the Absolute Towers, two residential highrises near Toronto designed by MAD, were sealed last Friday at 170 meters in height. The towers establish MAD's bold new approach to residential design.
Representatives from Absolute Towers' management and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion joined with MAD’s Associate Partner Ping Jiang at the ceremony on November 19th. Ping Jiang commented:
"Mississauga has become a magical city full of energy. We are happy to be part of it. More important, we are happy that so many people like the building. We believe the two towers are unique architecture which links the city and nature by introducing those beautiful curves. It is exciting to see these towers from outside now, but it will be more exciting to live inside."
The Absolute Towers, a 95,000m² development colloquially called the Marilyn Monroe towers, started construction in 2006. The topping out of the second 50-storey tower is expected next spring while completion of both towers is scheduled for fall 2011.
