Informations

Ponte City is a skyscraper at the Berea Area of Johannesburg, South Africa, just next to Hillbrow.

It was developed in 1975 to a height of 173 m (567.6 ft), which makes it the tallest residential skyscraper in Africa. The 55-story building is cylindrical, with an open centre allowing additional light to the apartments. The centre space is known as'the core' and rises above an uneven rock floor. When built, Ponte City was seen as an extremely desirable address due to its views over all of Johannesburg and its environment. The neon sign on top of the building is the largest sign from the southern hemisphere and advertised for the Coca-Cola Company prior to 2000. It now advertises the South African mobile phone company Vodacom.
