Indeed. Highcliffe is craziness.

From Toronto I like the slim profile of 1 King West-- Highcliffe is nicer though and much taller

1 King West (176m -- 578 ft. )

australians love post-it's

we were going to write a "please don't attack me" on it, but we still havent decided.

i think i forgot to mention it's the largest residential building in the world... (some measurements put the Q1 (also in Aus) ahead due to the large arial on top but i think theyre building something on top of the Eureka too)

The TWT tends to make residential buildings that are so simple look elegant.
