Cape Town’s new tallest building, Portside, currently under construction, will be the first significant high-rise in Cape Town since Safmarine House in 1993. At 139 meters the new building is marginally lower than the first approved tower which was approved at 147,6 meters above mean sea level (inclusive of ‘features’). Portside is intended to ‘key into’ into an existing and emerging cluster of tall buildings in this precinct of the Central City.
To celebrate our excitement of this new addition to our skyline, and as part of the end of our Month of Design for 2012, we are organizing a tour of the construction site of the building on 29 September, at 10AM. There are only 15 places available, so follow the easy Your City Idea steps and book your place.
