The Mother City is pegged to welcome a new building to the city centre that may take the crown of Cape Town’s tallest.
The Zero-2-One Tower will be built across the road from Cape Town Central Station, at the site of Old Mutual's Exchange Place on the corner of Adderley and Strand streets.
Currently in the planning stage, developer Craig Armstrong explains that the tower will be approximately 148m in height.
A team of development experts has been working with the City of Cape Town for several months to set the wheels in motion for the 42-storey building.
Armstrong says the skyscraper will contain at least 6000m² of retail space, 38 000m² or residential space (30 storeys with 624 apartments) and 10 floors which will make-up 740 parking bays.
The tower will have one of the best public-viewing decks at the top, to attract sightseers.
We want to make it a tourist destination, for it to be a place for tourist to go to have good view over Cape Town.— Craig Armstrong, Director at FWJK
Construction will begin in early 2017, and is expected to be completed by March 2020.
