That signpost has been up for years. If anything happens it would most definitely be something different (i hope)

May be the project is being stalled because they have seen an opportunity of going higher, who knows

This is the email I got from Marco

"Hey Pule!!

Thanks for replying in such short notice.. Once again awesome work youve been doing there my brother for SA, and thanks a million!!!
Well let me introduce myself, Im Marco am 26, and am a construction junky just like you and the rest of the gang.
I work as a Human Resources manager for a construction company in Portugal.
Well the second thing is that I already know SSC for quite a while (go there 3 or 4 times a day), the problem is that I cant log in due to company policies. But its as if I know all of you, Dysan, Jakes, Giles, Inertia, Durbsboi, Kulani, Mo...etc. Please tell them Hi on my behalf.
Moving on, I found a stunning render of a complex of Sandton Towers and some other cool projects, like the Hughton Development.
Last but not least, may I be so bold to request if you or Jakes can do another photo tour of Sandton with all new complete developments and UC!!!
Pule its been great talking to you, chat to you soon.
Marco
P.S. Dont forget to say Hi to the guys for me... or if you want to post this mail, please feel free, Ill be watching...
"


I have asked Marco to please send us more details about this development. We need to know the location, the developer and so forth. I hope its is approved, Sandton is really a silent giant. Marco, I will do a Sandton photo tour but I cannot say when I wil ldo that, just keep on logging, thanks so much for the info.

It's definitely the corner of Rivonia and 5th. You can see the Audi Sandton garage, and also the rear view of the building towards Sandton City. It'll essentially be diagonally opposite where the station is.

What should we call the development? Sandton Towers?

And Marco, would also be interested in the renders for the Houghton development. There was an environmentalist on 702 the other day talking about how The Houghton (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=572965) is having problems because there is a river that flows underneath the suburb, and so apparently they can't dig too deep. But not so sure..

A little off the topic but I just found a render for the development on 1 Sandton Drive. I just remembered that we never had one.
