1. The Absolute City Centre Complex (Link to Street View)
This complex made up of five towers has drastically changed the outline of the city centre. Initially one single elliptically formed tower was planned, but after the curious structure was well-received, the construction of a second one began. Absolute World 1, nicknamed the Marilyn Monroe Building because of its curvaceous form, has an architectural height of 178 metres, with 6 floors below and 56 above ground. The second tower, also built in an expressionist structural style, is 160 metres tall with 50 floors above ground. Both edifices are the tallest skyscrapers in the city, and serve as apartment buildings.
