This is going to be amazing. Next year we might have four 30+ floor buildings under construction in Cape Town

#The Modern (1 Dock Road) - 32F - Mixed Use - CBD | Planned

By year end, we'll have three high rises breaking ground in the foreshore alone - The Modern, 16 on Bree and 45 Lower Long.
Crane city

Isn't Zero2One also probably breaking ground this year and just on the right side of Strand to count as foreshore?

Let's hope these all get done before the bubble. Then at least we'll have something nice to look at, even if all the residential buildings are empty.

The Foreshore Four - it sounds like a group of falsely imprisoned people looking for justice; or maybe a very bad boy-band.

Maybe trying to get his post count up ? It is very strange though, one liners and single words on every single post/forum.

I think we all just get so over-excited when we see a post is up in a premier project, in hopes that there is some news and movement, just to see a two, three word 'yay, I like' comment.

Good news but we also have to hold thumbs for a long time and hope that this doesn't get "value engineered" into something a lot less exciting somewhere on the road from here to completion. If at some point it gets renamed from "The Modern" to "The Mundane" then that would probably be a bad sign!

And a portable toilet! You never told us about the portable toilet.

I seem to remember in the early stages of the Twinell build someone (probably you) got particularly excited when a portable toilet appeared on site.

If I finally see the project board up on site, I might just soil my pants. So the porta loo sounds like a great idea!
