if its on ABSA its over 32F.

It was tall as it was above the building which is about 140m

Saw 2 others in the area between Hilbrow and the Joburg Hospital. So many cranes up in Joburg at present

saw it today from top of Braamies. Its probably the highest crane in SA since 1986 when Reserve Bank building in PTA was built. ABSA is 140m and crane is about 160m up.

So many cranes up in Joburg at the moment

big reclad coming in Sandton. so sexy its frightening.

Not sure ABSA will get a reclad, Id suspect major plant replacement (Chillers, lift plant room etc)

mayor reclad involves creating empty space to work and multiple moves of tents. as this building is 100% occupied by ABSA I doubt its achievable in a living working building
