A third skyscraper for Cape Town’s city centre is being planned by developers and architects FWJK, and it’s called The Vogue.
Plans for the upcoming development have been floating around since 2008, under the placeholder name “Goldies”, but FWJK solidified its plans for the building in August, and renamed it “The Vogue”.
The 42,000 m2 mixed-use development is one floor lower (31 floors) than Cape Town’s current tallest building, the FNB Portside building which sits adjacent to it.
FWJK said it expects to launch The Vogue to the market in early 2018, and is expected to sell out rapidly as its neighbouring tower, 16 on Bree.
Residential apartments in The Vogue will offer a range of studio, one bed, two bed and three bed apartments including top level penthouse apartments which will all enjoy panoramic views over the Atlantic Seaboard.
The developer said that ground floor shops will provide an active retail edge to along all three streets including restaurants and other retail activities necessary for inner city living.
Construction is expected to commerce by March 2018 and will be completed by October 2020.
The Vogue joins two other ambitious skyscraper developments by FWJK, which includes 16 on Bree as well as Zero2One – which will become the new tallest building in the Cape Town skyline – all part of a R2 billion development boom taking place in the Mother City.
