Mississauga, 24 November 2010 – The Absolute Towers, 2 residential towers designed by MAD topped out last Friday at 170 meters, confirming Mississauga’s new identity connecting the urban with its surrounding natural landscape.

Absolute’s officials and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion joined MAD’s Associate Partner Ping Jiang at a 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.”

Design of the Absolute Towers, a 95.000m2 development, nicknamed the Marilyn Monroe towers, started in 2006. The topping out of the second 50 storey tower is expected next spring while completion for both towers is scheduled for fall 2011.
