It’s no secret that Cape Town enjoys a tad more accolades than Johannesburg when it comes to best city and best destination awards, but from a architecture and design perspective Joburg has a serious claim as SA’s most impressively designed city. Well it’s time to test that claim because the City Peaks Awards have returned and this year they have included Cape Town to find the coolest building and inside spaces in both cities. And it’s a people’s choice award so you get to vote for what you think is the best or coolest space.
City Peaks received almost 50 entries this year comprising the most incredible buildings and offices, dubbed Outside and Inside. These spaces are now hosted on the City Peaks website at www.citypeaks.co.za and is open for the public to decide what they deem to be the coolest places and spaces.
I won’t lie…i’ll be voting for the Red Bull offices in Cape Town for the best inside space. It’s awesome.
“City Peaks – The People’s Building Awards returns with the hardest decision to make yet: deciding what the coolest Inside and Outside spaces are; so they have asked the people of South Africa to help. After a successful campaign in 2015, Ash Brook Commercial Property (founders of the City Peaks awards programme), decided to expand and added office spaces as an extra category. They then invited Cape Town to submit their coolest spaces too, in addition to Johannesburg.
City Peaks came about as Ash Brook Commercial Property wanted to share their passion about commercial property with the public and showcase the coolest buildings in Johannesburg. The initiative encouraged major landlords in the country along with property owners to submit their best buildings for the ultimate bragging rights: To be the proud owner of the coolest building in town as voted by the public.”
Ok so let’s not turn this into a Cape Town vs Joburg thing, but go vote and let’s see who comes out tops hey. Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition. As it stands the leader in the Outside space category is The Edge in Tygervalley, Cape Town while the coolest inside space leader is Missing Link in Fourways, Joburg.
