Faits

  • Originally planned to be 64 stories high but was scaled back due to fire fighting concerns of the council.
  • A proposal surfaced in the late 1990s to reconfigure the building into a high-rise prison.
  • The tallest residential building in Africa, Ponte City has a hollow core along its entire height.
  • The sign at the top of the building is the highest and largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • The building is not completely cylindrical as it has a flat area on the rear side facing north.
  • The top 23 floors have a sepperate water supply located in tanks on the 31st floor and while lower floors are serviced by council supply.
  • The multi-story parkade is below ground at the front entrance and exposed at the rear due to the very steep nature of the site.
  • There is a shopping arcade on the 8th floor with 50 shops serving the tenants as well as a pedestrian bridge to the University crossing an adjacent freeway.
