Holiday Inn Cape Town was the first in Cape Town to have observation elevators behind a glass curtain.
The building 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 super hard. Dispite that, 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 Buissness 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.
