Marilyn and Joe

Mississauga has a new development at the north east corner of Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario.
The two signature buildings of the Absolute Condo complex are whats called the Marilyn Monroe building, and its similar neighbour, what we call Joe DiMaggio, former husband to Marilyn.
The stylish curves are what gave it its nickname, and they make a very cool silhouette on the horizon.

Taken from the roof of Marilyn, looking at Joe, you can see the curves of the building as the oval floor template rotates around the center of the building.

From the penthouse area, you can see that the height gives you a great view of the surrounding area!

Looking south along Hurontario towards the lake;

West along Burnhamthorpe towards City Hall;

And west again showing Square One;

West towards my own work building;

Looking north towards Brampton;

and two shots looking east towards Toronto;

and a shot looking down from the roof of the building, showing the balcony area,

and finally a similar shot from the penthouse balcony looking down to the ground, so far below!

This is inside one of the units under construction, from the entrance, looking into the main living room, with the kitchen and laundry on the right.

One of the bedrooms, with a pretty nice view out the window!

This is the kitchen area of, I believe, a two bedroom unit.

The entire complex has amenity spaces such as swiming pools, a half court, running track, weight room, overnite guest rooms, as well as a large theater with a big screen for watching movies,

and a series of party rooms with tv's, pool tables and access to a patio area for BBQ'ing.
