The 35' Clock Tower at the Head of the Town Square at The Shops at Don Mills Toronto, has unfortunately telling time.
Although the Homes at the top of the Tower are not representative of Don Mills Homes in particular, the Artist Doug Coupland, created it to represent a "Super Nova, a piece in which a cosmic explosion occurs and houses are sent out into the universe to colonize outer space” says Mr. Coupland. “It’s a poetic and quite lovely haiku of a moment in Canadian history.”

Although these Homes with the Carports and Bungalow Styles look like the 1950's Houses in Don Mills, they actually are from CMHC (Canadian Mortgage & Housing Corporation) Floor Plan Catalogues.
Don Mills Community prides itself in being Canada's First Planned Community which was financed by Businessman E.P. Taylor and master-minded by Macklin Hancock, an Urban Planner. Some of the Modernist Architects such as Henry Fleiss designed Don Mills Bungalows and Side-Splits to blend in with the topography of the area.
