Reminds me a bit of the Student tower proposed for Twin Street. Looks good I think. I was confident they’d come up with something at least somewhat interesting due to the small size of the space.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Yes its coming down, but that doesn't mean its at an acceptable level. If you tax mum and dad investors, your ordina...
