Very excited about this one! - 23 floors ( if above ground) will make a bit difference.
Praying to Santa that it isn't value engineered!

Abland seem to have a live stream of construction here. It isn't working for me at the moment, though:

35 Lower Long is 86 metres tall

I just got an email from Abland yesterday and they said that 35 Lower Long is 86 metres tall

Moderator, please note this and add the height in metres to the thread so it reads:

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

I just looked at the Abland live stream of the project and it appears that excavation is now taking place at the site.

Lydon please make note of this change and rename the thread as follows:

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

I find it quite interesting that this project was announced, and development and builing started quite quickly. Its so unusual compared to the numerous other projects that are being discussed on this forum at the moment some of which have threads going back 8+ years.

Do they have an anchor tenant yet? Or an investor with deep pockets? Or some kind of plan to make this scheme work that the other projects don't have?

While I'm happy to see this go ahead, its personally sad seeing that old EY building go. I spent so many of my good years slaving away in there.

A look at the R500 million skyscraper being built on Lower Long in Cape Town

Property developer Abland has begun excavating a site at 35 Lower Long Street in Cape Town, which will be home to a new R500 million skyscraper in 2020.

The development is on the site of the old Ernst & Young building, and is expected to reach 24 storeys – adding to the growing list of tower developments coming to the Mother City.

The building has been designed by Dhk Architects, and features a ‘glazed facade’, where the two main corners of the building are cut away and sloped towards the roof line, breaking the solidity of the building.

“The glazing on the these corners soars upwards past the roof line, further articulating the facade and extending past the building’s chambered corners, giving the effect of a crystalline screen rather than solid building mass,” Dhk said.

According to Abland, the development is valued at approximately R500 million, and will cover 14,000 square metres of floor space, while first occupancy of the building is expected to take place in the second quarter of 2020.
