CAPE TOWN | 22 Bree | 66m | 20 fl | Com

A new 20 floor tower currently under construction in the CBD of Cape Town, South Africa. Upon completion in mid-2013, it will house the offices of law firm Bowman Gilfillan, as well as two floors of office space available to let, ground-floor retail space and parking.

I think it's one of those love it or hate it buildings. Personally I'm a big fan because it's radically different from any other building in the CBD. Capetonian architecture tends to be very conservative and understated (not to mention short due to strict height restrictions) in an effort to not compete with the city's natural assets.
