These towers are a great concept. I hope the materials do them justice!

Thankfully this isn't your typical U.S. suburb especially the ones in the South. I like the funkiness of the buildings, obviously their height and how much more urban sauga has become. I was there back in late May on my Toronto vacation. I had not been there since 2002 and it was amazing to see how much sauga has changed as well as Toronto itself. The area is maturing rapidly and that's what I like to see.

I find most of the bldgs in Missasauga are rather blase regarding their architecture. But these towers give me something to look forward to when I'm back up there next month.
