A look at Joburg's new tallest skyscraper
'The Leonardo' is taller than The Carlton Centre
Posted: Feb 04 2019
If you’ve been anywhere near Sandton in the past few months, you’ve likely seen its latest building taking shape and rapidly overtaking the surrounding skyscrapers in the area.
The building is The Leonardo, a mixed-use development that will offer luxury residential units in the form of apartments and penthouse suites, as well as over 15,000 square metres of premium office space.
The arrival of the new building sees it taking the title of Johannesburg’s tallest skyscraper, toppling the Carlton Centre's 45-year reign. According to recent reports, The Leonardo is set to reach a height of 227 metres, although the final measure is set to change.
