Cape Town CBD gets new state-of-the-art hospital
Construction has started on the new multimillion-rand Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital on the Foreshore.
The new hospital is being built on the tract of land formerly used as a parking area by Media24, between the Artscape Theatre and the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Plans are being kept under wraps, but contractors WBHO are on site and have already started with excavation work.
The new hospital complex will boast 250- bed wards, state-of-the-art theatres, doctors’ surgeries and consulting rooms, linked retail, a gym and a parkade.Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Michelle Morris said construction timelines and the final completion date would be announced next week.

    Any idea on what is being built next to the Mercury Lounge?

    Hi Marc
    That’ll be E TV’s new Cape Town offices. Must still create thread for that 🙂

    Another horribly designed building on the Foreshore. The building looks squat, a result of the irrational 54m height restriction in the precinct. The design also looks dated – circa 2009 Wimpy interior shop fittings.

    That is the most forgettable piece of architecture I’ve ever seen (well, I’ve forgotten the rest) but I’ll be damned if that is not hideous, uninspired and boring as f*ck 🙁
