  • Zero to to One – Despite delays due to city approvals and funding hurdles, construction on the Zero-2-One Tower – which will become the tallest building in Cape Town – is expected to launch soon. The R1.3 billion city centre project is located on the corner of Adderley and Strand Streets, and is being led by developers FWJK. Zero 2 One Tower, at 44 storeys, will become the tallest building in Cape Town and will comprise 570 apartments and 7,000 sqm of retail shops on the ground level and station concourse level.
  • Cullinan Square – The latest proposal from RAS Architects is for a 192 metre tall skyscraper office building called Cullinan Square – on what is currently only known as ‘Site D’ in the city. According to RAS, the 42 floor tower is designed to be a mixed-use development, and would be the tallest building in Cape Town – trumping the yet-to-be developed Zero2one, which is expected to reach 148 metres. RAS said the orientation and shape of the tower has been designed in collaboration with engineers to deal with the winds “in an economic manner” – while also keeping the city’s famous views of Table Mountain and the surrounds. It will feature a hotel component that occupies the highest part of the tower, with a sky lobby, restaurant, spa and observation deck at the top of the building. The ground-level retail component promotes public activity and acts as an economic boost for development. In addition to pedestrian access, the retail component is also supported by the basement parking levels, nearby public transport hub, surrounding office buildings, and the 20 levels of prime office space in Cullinan Square.
  • The Vogue – Developers and architects FKJW are also planning to add to the Cullinan Square and Zero2one with a third skyscraper in Cape Town called The Vogue. The building is a 42,000 m² mixed-use development that is one floor lower (31 floors) than Cape Town’s current tallest building, the FNB Portside building which sits adjacent to it. FWJK said it expects to launch The Vogue to the market in early 2018 and it is expected to sell out as rapidly as its neighboring tower, 16 on Bree. The residential apartments in The Vogue will offer a range of studio, one bed, two bed and three-bed apartments including top-level penthouse apartments which will all enjoy panoramic views over the Atlantic Seaboard. Ground floor shops will provide an active retail edge to along all three streets including restaurants and other retail activities necessary for inner-city living, the developer said. Construction is expected to be completed by October 2020.
  • The Modern – The Modern is a R1.5 billion development expected to be completed within the next three years. According to developers, Ingenuity Property, the building will be located on the corner of Bree, Loop and Hans Strijdom Avenue, and will combine the old with a new ‘post-modern’ style. The building will feature a high-rise glass structure on top of a podium base, with a ‘twist’ to the facade, adding shape. It will offer 24 luxury apartments, a 230 room 5-star hotel, and 814 square metres of retail space. The development will also offer over 10,000 m² of premium office space.
