I could guess the architect before I saw the logo :D Looks good! The current building isn't too bad, but this is still a nice improvement.
Same:lol: one look and I was like, "there it is; those Silke curves, looking like some futuristic Art Deco crown". Prefer his new builds over his redevelopments though.

100% agree, all his buildings seem to morph into the same style. One trick pony?
Probably not, but it does seem like he's carved out a "style" he sticks to; bargaining that people come to him based on his aesthetic - as they do. Very Howard Roark-esque I guess.

From Heriots (the owners) most recent AFS:

Total costs incurred to 31 December 2018 amount to R143,4 million and the project is expected to be completed in May 2019.

This is now officially called The Heriot.

Signage is up on the Thibault Square side, and letting has started.

I assume the interior is close to done, although the outside still looks far from complete :/

I doubt we're getting much of a refurb on the exterior :(

Signage up on the Adderley Street side, with similar signage going up on the Thibault Square side.

Disappointed with the whole project but glad the clock is still there. I hope the developers get it working again - if it is not too much trouble for them.


Agree - what a disappointment - all the fanfare and didn’t even bothered to clean the facade. Looking at other projects/buildings they are managing I am not surprised .
