Voluptuous Digs at Marilyn Monroe Penthouse
Winner of the world’s most renowned prize for high-rise architecture for 2012, the Emporis Skyscraper Award, is the Absolute World Towers in Mississauga, Canada, a suburb of Toronto.
Better known as the Marilyn Monroe Towers because of their voluptuous curving shapes, they’re the first of their kind, designed by MAD and Burka Architects, and were chosen over 300 skyscrapers worldwide. The buildings twist by up to eight degrees per floor, which not only garners visual attention, but also is also functional in climate control.
Measuring in at 56 stories, 430 condo units and a six-level underground parking garage, no two floors are the same. The 50th-floor penthouses feature high-end design and panoramic views starting at $888,000 for 1,600- to 1,800-square-feet.
Units have nine-foot ceilings and private wrap-around balconies. The tower also features an exclusive 48th-floor lounge and the Absolute Club’s 30,000-square-feet of amenities. In addition to pool and spa areas and the two-story gymnasium, features include five furnished guest suites and a full-time activity director-personal trainer.
