Well, you must remember that property in South Africa is a katrillion times cheaper than it is in Europe.

And also, R900,000 for the most expensive unit is actually quite an expensive price for a building located in what many people perceive to be the dodgiest and most dangerous neighbourhood in South Africa.

Yeah but I've been checking SA real estate websites and nice houses are usually more expensive than that... but I get your point about the negative perception people have of Ponte and Hillbrow.

And yeah, unfortunately property is awfully expensive over here... it's insane...

WOW guys those two shots are both amazing! The first once unfortunately shows Joburg City to be too dry a city! I really wish the city would invest in a massive park for the city.

I wonder too... I would guess maybe only next year? Check out the website again... it's reverted back to it's original design, and you can now only register yourself for information again.

I am so itching to see a render of what the final building will look like, day and night... Guess we'll have to wait. Jo'burg needs to upgrade it's iconic buildings for the 21st century in the CBD... this is hopefully an awesome start!

ALL THE INFORMATION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF PONTY CITY IN JOHANNESBURG

Hey everyone,

Happened to spot your posts on Ponte through Google. My name is Jeff and I'm actually closely involved with this project, we launched the updated site this weekend go take a look if you'd like. And Oh there will not be an Hotel at the top. First launch of the sale for the Phase I apartments (floor 11 to 34) will be on the weekend of October 12, spread word pretty please.

Thanks all!

Jeff - Out

PS
Got any good pics of JHB? Pls share the love on my mail

Welcome Jeff! Good to have someone with inside knowledge here! Will definitely be checking the apartments out at the show weekend.

Also LOVE the redesigned website!

I was going to tell you about the Ponte group on facebook, but then I saw that you're already on there! lol. So I'm going to steal those renders you put up in the group and stick em up here.

May I ask... are you guys not concerned about the surrouding area? Do you have any plans to go beyond Ponte (and fix up the park next to Ponte, for instance), or will you mainly be concentrated in the building itself?

Joburg > I'm not the devolper, I merely work with them as a graphic designer.

The municipality of Joburg is putting in serious money in the surrounding areas, however for detailed information (if you're interested you can always talk to our media contact find her details on http://www.newponte.co.za/contactus.html

Must say it's great to see there's so much interest in Ponte and Joburg!
