The new website is live.

And it seems they'll be hosting a live webcam of their own soon!

Looks good. The CBD of Cape Town can really use a few modern skyscrapers, because so far the vast majority there seems to consist of ugly and bland 70s office towers.

Sorry for going off topic, but [email protected] if you do your homework you'll see that there are lots of modern skyscrapers in Cape Town... here are a few of them, all built between 1990 and 2012:





Personally I like a mixture of old and new architecture when it comes to skyscrapers, these new cities with their glass&steel-only skylines look soulless...

Of course there are a few modern ones, but they are definitely in the minority. Most of Cape Town's CBD seems to consist indeed of unattractive boxes from the 60s and 70s: http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=55123812

Using some of my photoshop skills, I created this image to show the kind of impact this tower will have on the Cape Town skyline.

Very ugly skyscrapers, but at least this new tower will balance the ugliness.
