Fitzroy Skyscraper Arrival Chute

As if their legal assault on our friends the Tweels wasn’t enough, this week multinational developer Homburg has added a mysterious new feature to its Fitzroy Street Skyscraper:

Secret Fitzroy Skyscraper Chute

While the specific role of the new feature is unclear, the art department has come up with one possibility, an Employee Arrival Optimization Tunnel:

With the developer’s stated desire to squeeze every last square foot out of the property, it seems only logical to conclude that they would also seek methods to optimize the time of the employees who will one day work there.

It seems obvious to me. It’s to throw the bails of hay created in the building up on to the top of the parkade.

Also, according to the Wikipedia, the term parkade is used in “Canada, South Africa, and Northeastern Pennsylvania”.

Or its where they dump the snow from the top level of the parkade.

Maybe its where Milli Vanilli will enter the building for their huge comeback special — to be aired on the local Eastlink Cable Channel. Make sure you’re there Steven — you may be the first person to attend 2 of their glorious concerts.
