We recently completed The Towers complex in the heart of Cape Town. This development has instantly become a landmark in the city where it redefined public space.
The development consisted of the complete upgrading of two existing office towers and the design of a new 40 000m2 parking structure consisted of 13 storeys. This parking structure was partly built over an existing 4-level basement and incorporated a 60 by 8 storey-high ‘grand concrete truss’.
A pedestrian area has been created between the Civic Centre and Hertzog Boulevard with a walkway that links the North and South Towers. This public atrium, with its open green spaces, is an ideal retail environment.
The upgrade was designed in such a way as to not disrupt the numerous existing tenants in the buildings and was completed within a two years.
The Towers was commissioned by Redefine Properties, and was a joint project with Boogertman & Partners en URBA.
