Well, that's a damn good design. And I'm NOT a fan of twisted buildings in general.

CONSIDERING THE OTHER ATROCITIES FEATURED INT HE CONTEST, IT'S NO WONDER THAT THEY PICKED THIS ONE.

(whoops, caps off now)

The chosen design is pretty sexy...

Damnnnn...

There are already so many High Rises in that area as it is!!

Hmmm.. Interesting Can Mississuaga's HighRise core surpass Bayview/Sheppard?

Time will tell, but it appears as though Toronto has 4 Skylines in formation.

Nice. I think they were referring to it as the Marilyn Monroe. I like the second and third designs as well.
