Liberty Holdings and Pareto Ltd have announced a phenomenal glass-facade upgrade for the iconic Sandton City Office Tower.
After the significant success of the Gautrain project, Sandton has been re-established as one of the premium destinations for fashion, business and entertainment in Gauteng.
This has resulted in a variety of revamps on the buildings in the area, some of which include the new Alexander Forbes building, Marsh’s new offices and 102 Rivonia to name a few.
Recently, Liberty Properties announced that the 40-year-old Sandton City Office Tower building on 5th Street, which is co-owned by Liberty Holdings and Pareto Ltd, is also in line for a massive revamp.
The 22-storey high-rise building is one of Sandton’s most famous landmarks. Graham Kusano, divisional director of property development at Liberty Properties, says: “During its 40 year tenure, the building has undergone routine maintenance and safety checks. The building remains structurally sound but, given the age of the building, routine restorative and preventative maintenance needs to be undertaken.”
The revamp will include the addition of a modern, environmentally-sound glass facade and a security upgrade. “A new glass facade will ensure that it remains relevant in the prestigious Sandton Central node.
“In addition to the refurbishment of the facade, routine maintenance work will be conducted and we anticipate the project to be completed in approximately 18 months. Existing tenants are fully apprised of the situation and can rest assure that all occupational, health and safety regulations will be adhered to at all times during the course of the project,” continues Kusano.
