Cape Town’s Central City continues to kick the recession blues in the height of pre World Cup




Cape Town’s Central City continues to kick the recession blues

In the height of pre World Cup fever, Hotel Missoni was one of many planned five-star hotels to open before the 2010 showcase, then delayed until ‘early 2011’. The project was eventually cancelled, left incomplete and the building shell sat empty for quite some time. Fortunately, it was then auctioned off, and is now set to house offices for the Department of Justice.
