Weird how the middle ring is officialy black but sometimes appear as purple. On this picture, the ring itself is black but the lighting is purple.

No, office space. I believe this was Air Canada's old HQ before they moved to the airport.

Now that's a great, under-appreciated view.

It's a perfect angle to enjoy most of the new projects. The TDC towers (170m) and the 750 Peel (180m) will look huge.

Except it's not from Deerfoot Trail as that's Deerfoot Trail right below in the picture - more likely the picture was taken from Barlow Trail.
