Building Obsession: MichelAngelo Towers, Sandton – South Africa

Located in the heart of Sandton, South Africa, our building obsession for this week is the Michelangelo Towers. The 34-floor building stands high as one of the tallest buildings in South Africa at an approximate height of 145m. 

 

This mixed-use development sits on a footprint of  57,924m² and consists of office, retail and residential components. Sitting close to the Sandton Convention Centre and the world-famous Nelson Mandela Square, the Michelangelo Towers creates a breathtaking impression on the Sandton skyline. 

 

This property was developed in 2005 by The Legacy Group. It was designed by Bentel Associates International, an award-winning architectural firm who also designed The Palms, a shopping mall in Lagos, Nigeria. 

 

The stunning design and furthermore, the quality of the exterior finish occupies our enthusiasm. According to the architects, the high-rise apartments of Manhattan were a significant influence on the design of the Michelangelo Towers’ apartments. 

 

The building features a classical aesthetic with arches, sandstone, and marble finishes. An elegant steel and glass dome gives the building a sense of luxury and grandeur. Contemporary details are incorporated through the use of modern finishes such as glass balustrades and aluminum framings.

 

The property has 242 en-suite rooms or suites, which include 218 deluxe and superior rooms, 22 premier and executive suites, and two presidential suites. Other facilities in the hotel includes a health and fitness centre with sauna and steam room; an indoor heated swimming pool, digital safes in all rooms; and medical service on call.
