Here 3 residential towers are shown, they are part of a large development project of the Concord Adex Corp on 40 hectares of downtown land, which was previously a railway yard.. The project is nearly complete, in 17 towers and numerous small buildings 10,000 condominiums units, a city within the city, is created. The tower on the left is called the Montage, it has 531 unit on 47 floors; the Luna Vista in the middle is smaller, 378 units on 38 floors; the 'Parade' on the back is a twin tower, it has 1758 units.
The red object between the towers is a sculpture by Mark di Suvero, a very successful American abstract expressionist sculptor. He created this piece in 1967 for Toronto and called it Flower Power, a popular theme at the time. It was restored and moved to this location in 2010.

A good view on those buildings and an interesting note. The graphic effect of all those balconies and windows is interesting under the strong June light.

Perfect composition on this, the way the towers dot the scene leading off the shot is ideal to show the height, and position of the buildings. The light is wonderful, and that red object catches the eye. A playground or work of art perhaps? Love that you places the name of the area so perfectly in the lower left.
Thanks as always
