About Marilyn Monroe Condos AKA Absolute World
The Marilyn Monroe condos are located at 50 and 60 Absolute Avenue, Mississauga, Ontario L4Z 0A9. L4Z 0A3
Marilyn Monroe Condos Location & Features
Located in the heart of Mississauga its practicality and convenience attracts many buyers locally and distantly. Absolute condos are minutes away from Square One, TTC, GO and Highway 403.
Absolute condominiums were built by Fernbrook homes. Absolute condo community is made up of five condominiums 50 Absolute, 60 Absolute (known as Marilyn Monroe condos), 70 Absolute, 80 Absolute and 90 Absolute World Condos.
Marilyn Monroe condos have put Mississauga on a global map becoming a landmark for the city and defining Mississauga’s skyline. They have attracted both tourists and investors from all over the world and were sold out within 2 weeks of opening!
Officially called Absolute Towers, the building and its shorter and slightly less buxom twin, were the result of an international design competition in 2005 won by the MAD Architectural Design Studio of Beijing beating 92 other submissions. Company officials have credited the project with giving both Mississauga and their firm a global profile.
The condos have become known as the Marilyn Monroe condos, resembling the hourglass figure of Marilyn Monroe.
That’s a view shared by Hazel McCallion, the city’s long-serving octogenarian mayor, who says the project represents Mississauga’s arrival as a “global city.” “This is not the end; it is just the beginning,” she told reporters last fall.
Living in the Absolute community is like living in a 5 star hotel. All of the condos share a common 30,000 sq ft amenities section that is known as the Absolute Club, which is shared by all the Absolute residents. It is a 3 story recreation and exercise facility that is both indoor and outdoor.
The Marilyn Monroe Buildings consist of 30,000 sq ft of amenities, including:
- A two story gymnasium featuring areas for basketball, baseball, and volleyball. It is also surrounded by an indoor running track.
- The area includes an exercise complex, aerobics center, Yoga/Pilates space and a weight room, change rooms, showers and locker rooms for both men and women. Full time activity director and personal trainer available on site.
- An elite feature of the club is its athletes lounge with a juice bar
- Heated outdoor swimming pool that has a patio and a fireplace and an indoor pool with a whirlpool, along with spas and steam rooms
- 2 squash courts, a billiard room, and a card room
- A private theatre that is fully furnished with large TV screens, DVD players and surround sound!

Spiral Tower 4 (Building D)
The fourth in the Absolute master planned community, this 50-storey landmark tower is not just the tallest in the neighbourhood, but also a breakthrough in conventional tower design. The result of a worldwide architecture and design competition, the tower is a fantastic example of outside the box thinking. Eschewing straightlines, fixed points and vertices, the tower is a slender, graceful curvaceous form of glass and steel with magnificent wrap-around balconies, soaring sightlines and incredible vistas. The suites and penthouses (on the uppermost storeys) provide the ultimate in elegant gracious living.
Spiral Tower 5 (Building E)
Stylish, sinuous and seductive, the fifth tower in the Absolute firmament is an ode to the ultimate in curvaceous beauty. A bold new expression of avante garde architecture, this design was a prestigious winner in a worldwide design competition. Towering 40 storeys high in the heart of Mississauga, this building raises elegant living to a true art form. Translucent glass draped around stunning elliptical balconies, sensational 360 vistas, soaring 9′ and 10′ ceilings, exquisite hardwoods and plush 50 oz broadlooms are just some of the marvelous features in this one-of-a-kind residence.

Please Note: Although the below sales history information is deemed accurate, the information provided is often oversimplified and not a true representation of the building’s price trends. For instance; many buildings have less than 15 sales transactions in any given year, and a single sale of a larger penthouse unit, can result in a significant spike in the “average price” of units sold in that building. When buying or selling it’s always advisable to have us complete a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) to ensure fair market value.

For all you idiots talking shit and then saying you are thinking about selling, this is probably not the best way to get your place sold! Consumers are always reading up on reviews now a days for every and any purchase, i hope a future buyer for your property reads your review and decides not to purchase. However I do live at 50 Absolute, and although it has it share of issues I have also lived or owned 4 other condo's in the Mississauga and it's just standard issues that come with any condo living. This is an amazing structure both inside and out but more importantly a long term investment which I plan to never sell!
I bought a unit here in 2009 - have been living here for almost 5 years now. When the building was new, yes there were elevator issues and management/security issues...its a new building, what do you expect people? Certain things have to work themselves out. Now, I usually wait 30 secs for an elevator (unless its rush hour times, which can mean 2-3 min waits). The new management company is nice, security has got their stuff together now as well. A lot of people complain about elevator wait times, parking issues, cops and firefighters. If you go anywhere downtown or to other condos that are tall, you will experience all the same issues, if you dont want to wait for elevators or deal with parking or hear the occasional fire alarm, then go live in a house or townhouse. These iconic buildings are in the heart of one of Canada's largest cities...do you expect Police to never show up to buildings which have thousands of people living in them? Come on people....you have to realize that it comes with the territory. If you want utter silence..move out of the city lol! I love living here..it is convenient, people are nice, everything is close by. Would not trade my unobstructed view for any other condo in the area. In my opinion, the buildings are as good as its going to get anywhere around the SQ1 area. If you can afford to live here, then you should :)
Are there any fellow owners of units in 50 Absolute that are having issues with the "Special assessment" that was just given in November 2014? I am trying to see who else has issues with paying this large sum for such a new building and being treated like pretty much garbage by property management and the board. Please contact me.
Absolute mess. Everything is always broken. Management gives 0 f**k. Police are here all the time. Someone just got killed recently. Crazy. Thinking of moving out.
The buildings are top-notch. As a long-time resident, I've had to wait for a maximum of 5-7 minutes for an elevator to show up during peak use periods. The residents are friendly and helpful. Some of the young male security guards, however, are rude/crude and I hope that their surly/suggestive attitude improves or that they get replaced. The Mississauga News, with the weekly flyers, used to be delivered to my old condominium, but not here; as a student, having the flyers in hand was very convenient. Also, keeping the lounge open longer would help facilitate my research.
All-in-all, Absolute World is a nice place to live. Some people at concierge and in management could and should treat residents better, but those individuals don't reflect the entirety of the diverse population present here.
If you do decide to stay at the Absolute condos, welcome!
Nice looking on the outsideside, same old cookie-cutter condo on the inside. Notice how most people who love the place are investors? Why would they "crap in their own bed" while offering a revue that is generating possible income.
The place looks older then it is. It comes with all the goodies that most other condos come with. Fire alarms, noisy neighbors, weird/disgusting odors, heat issues, water issues, elevator issues, cheap materials and mediocre quality workmanship.
I currently live in 50 Absolute. I'm not sure why I see so many negative reviews. Yes, there has been issues in the building with water and elevator. But you have to understand, any NEW building - WILL have these issues...however, the management was quick to jump in and fix them. They are unique condos...prices will definitely go up.
The only downside I see is the parking...but I visited other new buildings in Toronto - and saw the same problem. So cant really complain.
These condos are great as I own an investment apt in 50 absolute. I am extremely shocked from the jealousy and allegations of other people about these beautiful condos and for your information for the last 3 years I never waited more than 2 minutes for elevators when visiting my tenants !!!!!
I would never recommend anyone to live in this place. I live in 50 Absolute and it has been an absolute nightmare for myself, and every other patron who lives here. Not only are the elevators the worst elevators I have ever been in (I've waited upwards of 20-30 minutes for it) we have had repeated power outages, heating issues, AC issues and the garbage chutes on the floors rarely work. The last straw for me was having our hot water be out for 5 days. NO HOT WATER FOR 5 DAYS! Not only that, management turned their phones off, did not respond to anyone and also locked their management door. I finally tracked down one person from management, and she said "what do you want me to do about it? We are working on it" after rolling her eyes. You've been warned! DO NOT INVEST IN THIS PLACE. I will be moving out HAPPILY as soon as my lease is done.
I absolutely LOVE these buildings. My sister in law lives 50 Absolute. I think these condos will have good appreciation in the future!
