#35 Lower Long - 23F (86m) - Mixed Use - CBD | Topped Out

This is a new development proposed for the current Ernst & Young building.

22F is an estimate of number of floors

44 Long by stubles, on Flickr

Do you know the architects? Looks a bit like a paragon building.

Not sure yet but its being developed by Abland (the property is owned by the Ellerines) and they use Paragon in JHB so you could well be right!

Very nice! Abland did 22 Bree and they used Boogertman + Partners for that, so it could be them as well (if they stick to the same firms).

This design reminds me so much of 7 Bryant Park

The split at the bottom looks like it's just a reflection of the split at the top?

It does, unlikely that they would have the 'cut-in' on the lower levels which are parking (would effect the grid and parking ratio which is already low). It looks like the cladding could be different on the corner to mimic what's going on above

On another note - any news/rumours of a possibility that 2 Long Street will be upgraded? - At least paint the building and get rid of the yellow/beige

It was painted/ upgraded about two years ago, so I think we're pretty much stuck with what's there.

Soon, it'll be surrounded by snazzy neighbours and will fade into oblivion

It was recently sold. But not sure if that equals redevelopment or even further refurbishment.

That EY building HAS to go sooner or later!
Nice location.
I would love to see a new one in its place.
Perhaps a continuation of + 15 stories of the ABSA building next door in a conical mini Ponte shape

Don't forget there's already a proposal for the Virgin Active site just to the left of the ABSA building as well. As far as I'm aware, there has been some design development since those renders were produced, though

This would be great for the area.

The building next door will also be getting some love.
