Do we know what this foreshore elevation will look like when completed? - blank wall ?

How many more floors until will top out on this one? As an aside... I so wish to any deity that 1 Thibault would just replace all the glass with something reflective and new. It would actually make that old tower look halfway decent!

So, I asked DHK about the harbour facing side and they replied :
"The curtain wall will extend as far as possible around the common boundary wall side with the blank area being aesthetically treated with a textured pattern that emulates the module of the glazed facade."

That their way of saying it’ll be a textured wall, but don’t worry, it’ll look okay ?

Nice Andre! Looks as tho they are doing something interesting on the 2 back corners where the glass meets the 'textured wall'... the corners look 'tucked' and it looks like its going up at an angle?

Can anyone with industry knowledge tell me why we seem to always be getting the same type of glass?

Do we only have one manufacturer in Cape Town that makes glass cladding, or does this tint of glass offer the best UV protection, etc at the most affordable price?
