Centurion Symbio City

It looks as though in the foreseeable future, the suburb of Centurion near the City of Pretoria in the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, will boast one of the World’s tallest buildings.

In his article titled ‘Reality or "Pie in the Sky? "’ Pieter Rautenbach informs us that this colossal skyscraper is to be 484 meters high, which will no doubt give Centurion its very own unique skyline. 

The 110 storey building is to be known as Centurion Symbio City and should be completed in 2018. It is to be among the 6 tallest buildings in the world and the highest on the African continent. The current tallest building in Africa is the Carlton Centre with the new structure destined to surpass it by a staggering 224 meters.  Read Pieter’s Article

The thought did occur to me that if they were to paint it Blue Bull pink, they would also be able to boast the only man made structure in Africa, visible from space.
