Cool towers. Cool name. Is this related to Absolut Vodka by any chance?

Jumping in the thread here..i like the towers, but why cant there just be 1, they should've at least done 2 designs for 2 towers.
It seems like most of mississauga isn't very original. There aren't really any unique buildings. They build almost like 2 or 3 or 4 of everything here.

You do have a point about the multiple tower situation but here is a quote regarding the two towers in question:

"They are Yansong Ma's version of Yin and Yang," says Danny Salvatore, president of Fernbrook Homes, which in partnership with the Cityzen Development group is creating the new community. "While the first tower captures the feminine, the second tower will be its counterpart, still romantic in its silhouette but more rugged and perhaps more robust."

I like this one which is being built on the Mississauga waterfront in Port Credit - only one

You've got it all wrong. Every other twisting tower was proposed after this one. This design was the first.

The first? I believe the Turning Torso in Malmo was the first to gain widespread notoriety and it is from this that the trend sprung. The Swedish tower broke ground February 14, 2001. I may be wrong, but I doubt Absolute World was proposed back in the 90s.

I didn't mean a design is made, and then 'sauga builds a tower like it.
I meant there are too many "twin towers" in this city.

AW - In seems that the two buildings are going to be a lot closer than what the renderings would suggest which is a good thing (imo).
