Yep. Was lucky to go up there.

Btw what is this development below called? And what does it entail? A crane is being installed here. Also, look closely at the top of sandton city. There is activity of some sort up there.

So does anyone have any idea as to what that red crane is for?

Great to see all these cranes rising in Sandton as well

So after a few weeks of sabbatical I must say I feel like a new man . Been monitoring the forum and decided that it's better I stay out of any political discussions as most of my views are echoed by many others here who have the patience I seem to lack...

Anyway I'm posting because I have a cool new dev in Sandton that I will be unveiling soon (in a few months the latest) for you guys. But this is a real dev not like SA Boy's imaginary skyscrapers

Anyway I've just seen some early designs and it looks HOT. I was so excited that I had to break my post sabbatical... I can't say much about it because it's still under development but all will be revealed closer to launch (+- Feb 2013)

If you've known me long enough on this forum and paid attention over the years you may be aware of the site already...

I don't want to SA Boy all of you though: please note this is NOT a skyscraper, but still a very nice dev

great it was better without you and your juvenile comments and lack of property development understanding. you think a R2bil tower comes together in 6 months which is how long I have been in joburg? in that time launched R2.8Bil on new projects including a massive sandton highrise project no one knows about and even when the cranes go up we wont go public.
grow up and keep the childish comments to yourself

Hey, you can't promise a 50+ floor as a short-term certainty then never deliver and get away with it on SSC. We are skyscraper starved in SSC Gauteng.

I however anxiously await your proposal, if it does indeed come.

dude short term certainty is measured in many many months when it comes to pulling off such a massive project. 6 months has only allowed a fraction of the work to be done to support this investment case.

My first and second High rise projects will go public , fist this year and second early next year before the new tower which doesn't mean its not happening, it means we are doing it right and delivering an amazing project and its all happening behind the scenes.
