Ponte City


Built in 1975 as the height of luxurious (white-only) living in Johannesburg, rumors have it that initial plans were to include an indoor ski slope on the inner core floor. In the 80’s and 90’s, the building and its surrounding neighborhoods took a turn for the worse. Africa’s tallest residential building became a notorious vertical slum, filled with crime and poverty, the 173m hollow core filled five stories high with trash. In late 2000’s the new owners of Ponte, begun a clean up project which saw the renovation of the building’s common spaces, 450 flats and the introduction of an elaborate security upgrade. The 54 story building is now home to some 3000 people from all walks of life and is a must visit tourist attraction when visiting Johannesburg.
