Also known as the roof of Africa, at 223 m the Carlton Centre has been rocking the record books as the tallest office building in Africa since 1973. With 50 floors, the foundations are 5 m in diameter and extend 15 m down to the bedrock with nearly 50% of the floor area existing below ground. It used to house the luxurious Carlton Hotel and one of its most prominent guests was no other than Hillary Clinton. It takes only 45 seconds to go from the ground floor to the 5th, which is known as the Roof Of Africa.
Address: 150 Commissioner St, Johannesburg, 2001.
11 Diagonal Street
Designed by German-American architect Helmut Jahn, 11 Diagonal Street was designed to look like a diamond reflecting in the Jozi sky. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the 80-meter high building stands out among the other skyscrapers. Construction was concluded in 1984 and... come to think of it...it kind of looks 80s. Retro!
Address: 11 Diagonal St, Johannesburg, 2001.
The Anstey's Building
During the late 1930s, an art-deco styled building popped up in downtown Johannesburg. At the time, it was the tallest building in Africa and was owned by a guy called Norman Anstey. Anstey ran the Anstey's Department Store.
Address: 59 Joubert St, Johannesburg, 2001.
The most prominent structure in town is the Hillbrow Tower (no Jozi skyline tattoo is complete without it). Fun fact about this building is that it always needs to be higher than the tallest building in town so that the telecoms signals sent from it won't be interrupted. Pretty cool, eh? Unfortunately, it's closed to the public due to security reasons, though it used to host a revolving restaurant at the top.
Address: Hillbrow Tower, Banket St, Johannesburg, 2038.
The most iconic feature of the Sandton skyline stands out like a spire on the horizon. The Michelangelo Hotel is where celebrities and world leaders stay when they visit the city, from Justin Bieber to Barack Obama and just about every other A-grade celebrity in between. At 140 m tall and between R30 000 and R60 000 per square meter per month, The Michelangelo Hotel is nothing but the most exclusive kind of real estate in Africa.
Address: 135 West St, Sandton, Johannesburg, 2196.
Last but not least, we have Ponte City. This high rise was almost turned into a vertical prison until developers snatched it from ruin. This once-upon-a-time slum of a skyscraper boasts a 100% upper-middle-class occupancy. Ponte is an iconic point of interest and acts as a beacon to the neighborhood of Hillbrow. Though the neighborhood itself has a bad reputation, it's seen an ample amount of upliftment since Ponte's redevelopment.
Address: Joe Slovo Dr, Johannesburg, 2198.
