This Curvy residential condominium in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada Within days of the announcement, the building had been nicknamed the “Marilyn Monroe Tower” due to its curvaceous, and reference to her voluptuous figure hourglass,  figure likened to actress Marilyn Monroe  Standing at 50 and 56 storeys, these two skyscrapers will be the tallest of any built in a Canadian suburban city.

The two towers are also known as the ‘Condo Couple’.The residential towers fan out from a 30,000ft² private recreation centre. The tower turns 180° from the base to the top.

The Condo Couple will have a continuous balcony around the entire skyscraper in place of the commonly used vertical barriers. The building makes a different angle at different levels to provide a 360° view to each unit.
