“Mississauga has become a magical city full of energy. We are happy to be part of it. More important, we are happy that so many people like the building. We believe the two towers are unique architecture which links the city and nature by introducing those beautiful curves. It is exciting to see these towers from outside now, but it will be more exciting to live inside.”
