It comprises a podium of two basements, a ground floor of shops, three floors of parking and storage and a 29-storeyed tower block with concrete central core. Adjacent is a 9-storeyed building with the interspace once used as a hotel pool deck. This building was the first in Cape Town to use a continuous glass curtain wall. It had the distinction of being the largest steel-skeleton building of its time in South Africa. It was refurbished (n.d.) by MUNNIK VISSER ARCHITECTS.
