The Cape Town CBD’s impressive transformation is far from complete. Cape Town’s tallest-ever commercial building – the latest skyscraper project could just be the jewel in the mother city’s crown.
Cullinan Square, a 192 meter tower that is currently being designed by RAS Architects, is set to be Cape Town’s tallest building. The project will occupy a currently undeveloped site, with commanding views of the ocean, table mountain and Tamboerskloof from its ultra-modern office suites.
Cutting-edge design that will change the city’s landscape forever
The design team responsible for realising the Cullinan Square project have clearly gone beyond conventional architecture. Tall buildings in Cape Town pose a special challenge to designers because of the city’s strong winds.
In order to create a structure that will be stable and provide its users with a quiet, productive office environment, the architects have opted for a wedge-shaped tower.
- Only the building’s narrowest aspect will face the strong South-Easter, limiting the structure’s exposure to the wind
- The building’s shape will allow for a smaller reinforced concrete core, reducing construction costs while ensuring high levels of structural safety
Amazing views, premium accommodation and A-grade retail space – all in one
In keeping with the trend to live, work and play – Cullinan Square is envisaged to be a mixed-use development. A hotel, luxury apartments, premium office space, and a publicly-accessible lobby and retail floor – not to mention a rooftop observation deck, will meet all the needs of today’s modern city dweller.
This combination of amenities should draw a lot of interest from commercial property investors, tenants, and tourists alike – in a similar style to iconic structures like the Empire State Building in New York or Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
