• Launched in the boom of 1980 years, a 57-storeys tower was to be constructed with a cost about US$ 1 billion. It was controversal from opposites of massive huge structures, because it would be higher than official plans. To be approved, the developers spent US$ 80 million in other projects. Construction although began in 1990 and due to recession, it was stopped on-hold in 1993 after spending US$ 500 millions on it. The parking garage and concrete shaft stood as monument in city downtown, known as 'the bunker' or 'the stump'. In 1998 TrizecHahn revived it for short time. In 2000 was revived again, when TrizecHahn sold 50% to Brookfield for about US$ 49 millions, declaring it would be shorter. Only in 2005 the project restarted with towers of about 43 to 50 storeys for tenants KPMG and Goodmanns LLP. On December 11, 2006 the construction restarted and was finished with 51 storeys in July 2009.
