Mississauga Absolute World condos received a major accolade this past week, when the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a prestigious Chicago-based not-for-profit organization, named them the best new tall buildings in the Americas for 2012. The CTBUH awarded four global winners in total, from four separate geographical regions.
Absolute World condominiums (Marilyn Monroe buildings) in Mississauga, Ontario – winner for the Americas
1 Bligh Street, Sydney – winner for Australia and Asia
Palazzo Lombardia, Milan – winner for Europe
Doha Tower, Doha – winner for the Middle East and Africa
Buildings were chosen for their design and technical innovations, their sustainable characteristics, the enhancement they provide to the cities where they are located, and the enhancement they provide to the lives of the citizens in those cities.
The four winners for 2012 will be honoured, and awards will be given out, at the CTBUH 11th Annual Awards Ceremony which is scheduled to take place at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, on October 18th, 2012. On the night of the ceremony, in addition to the four regional awards, from these, one overall winner will be selected, and will be awarded with the title of “Best New Tall Building Worldwide” for 2012.
The ‘Best in the Americas’ award just bestowed on ‘Marilyn’, and the recognition that goes with it, only confirms what the citizens of Mississauga already know – that the Absolute World condominiums, the ‘Marilyn Monroe’ towers of Mississauga, are two of the most exhilarating real estate developments in recent memory, that provide a daily delight to the senses for anyone lucky enough to see them on an everyday basis. The Mississauga skyline will never be the same.
Congratulations to the development team at Fernbrook/Cityzen, to Dominus construction, to everyone who bought at these fabulous condos, and to the City of Mississauga! And good luck in October – winning the overall “best new tall building in the world” for 2012 would be well deserved!
