With this one going up slightly taller than the new 10fl across the road, we are getting some real inner-city type density here - and with some style!

Sasol in the background, the Werksmans building just getting completed...this area is looking special.

The area is indeed looking awesome! We have an entire row of shiny new buildings, as seen in that pic I posted to the Sandton Discussion thread :cheers:

However, I do have a big gripe with the area.

Every one of these buildings needs a residential component on the top floors. Mixed use development needs to be made mandatory! While the area is alive during the week, the streets are a lot less busy over the weekend.

There is very little demand for high end residential at the moment. Developers aren't building.

Apartment blocks don't have to all be high-end. Developers could build for middle-income too...Not everyone living/working around Sandton is an uber-rich banker/lawyer.
