Architect: Louis Karol Architects

- The building is connected by an underground shopping mall to Golden Acre, Picbell Parkade and the Cape Town railway station.

- The underlying rock was very expensive to excavate because it was very hard. Over 60 000 cubic metres of rock was excavated from the site. There was a controversy about this development taking up important parking space in the Central Buisness District .

- This building was completed 4 weeks ahead of schedule, taking only 35 months to be built.

- The glass elevator shaft is covered by 3,700 square metres of glass which weighs 68 700 kg.
