30 Rock in Cape Town

So here is Cape Towns very own 30 Rock. Not in the sense that a television station runs from there, or that funny shenanigans go down behind the walls each and every day. In fact no real big corporation runs from there, the building is mainly residential. So how is it similar… Both buildings are great style of art deco architecture that was so popular on the twenties and thirties. It did start out as a building for business but as time went by the building was slowly converted to cater for residents seeking inner city living at its best. Offering tenants a double volume living space all with a loft.
The penthouse, a three floored apartment at the top of the Mutual Heights that offer a wonderful 360 degree view from mountain to harbor and everything in between.

OLD MUTUAL: Best example of CT art deco – Cape Granite. Frieze depicting scenes from SA history by Ivan Mitford- Barbeton. Entrance and Banking Hall intact, but rest converted to apartments. One of the most sought-after addresses in the inner city
