Amazing looking towers. The most unique and Iconic skyscraper, excluding the CN Tower to be ever constructed in Canada. A landmark that will be known throughout the world.

The balcony glass is really going to make these towers sing.

i kinda wish the balconies didn't have those vertical gray stripes. it looks like it could be a hit or miss. guess we'll just have to wait.

i loveeee the effect it creates from diff angles! you can see through it directly in front but as it turns the reflections create a shiny skin on the building! the glass/color isn't the best, but compared to other residential towers it looks beautiful (not saying i don't like the glass or that it's cheap, but i wonder what it would look like with round panels instead of flat ones).

The Mississauga Magic continues with the sharp end of the stick of a vanguard of new towers and revitalized downtown core. Can't wait for these towers, but also the dozens more under-construction here and the hundreds more coming down the pipe.

I don't think your comments were stupid. A bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but not stupid. It's buildings like these that turn ordinary, normal people into skyscraper freaks like us.

And I used to think that Burnaby had the best suburban skyline in the country.
