  •  Interesting Features
    The base of the tower is built over top the heritage Canadian Bank of Commerce Building that's been vacant since 1987, and can be explored while making your way up the tower. Furthermore, the top floors of Massey have a cantilever style scaffolding that is used to store a bunch of excess materials. It can make for some interesting climbs and photos.
