I find it hard to reconcile the precinct picture with the renders on an actual map - any help?

In the first pic the building on the left is BlockA/B (this is the main 'Longkloof' building previously occupied by eTV and now by Travelstart) and the building on the right is the Herbert Baker and you are looking at the 'back' of the Canopy building with the 'front' being on park road.

The second image is from Park road looking at the 'front' of the Canopy building, the Canopy is divided into two sections to create a line of sight from Park road to the Herbert Baker building, you can see the 'Ricks Cafe' building (which doesn't belong to Growthpoint) on the left between the two Canopy buildings.

The third pic is from the top of Park road looking at the two Canopy buildings with Ricks Cafe nestled in front betwen them and Block A/B behind.

Fourth pic is looking down the 'avenue' between the Herbert Baker on the left and the Canopy on the right with the Block A/B building at the end

Fifth pic is black A/B on the left, the two canopy buildings centre left left and Herbert Baker centre right. The open space in the centre bottom is the same space as in the first pic

For those who are interested 'Block A & B' where originally built for The United Tobacco Company and the water tower of this building (seen in first pic) is a significant feature and the new buildings were not permitted to be higher than this.

Hilton Hotels has announced the signing of a management agreement with Growthpoint Properties, South Africa's largest real estate investment trust (REIT), to open a hotel under its lifestyle Canopy by Hilton brand.

The 150 guestroom Canopy by Hilton Cape Town Longkloof is expected to open in 2021 and will be the brand's debut property in Africa. It will be located at Long Kloof Studios on the corner of Park Road and Kloof Street.

They aren't owned by Growthpoint but will benefit from the hotels presence when complete but have a bit of a rough time during construction. I think Ricks Cafe is relocating to a another building on Park road

Foxyman,

This hotel brand is considered Upscale, so it would become a 4-star hotel.
