6. METLIFE CENTRE

6. METLIFE CENTRE

Cape Town
Pinnacle Height         150m
Number of Floors        28
Year Constructed        1993

Not to be confused with the 246-metre tall Metlife Building in midtown Manhattan (New York), this is Cape Town’s tallest building and the only skyscraper from the mother city to feature on this list. Built by Murray & Roberts , the Metlife Centre, is a 28 floor, 150-metre tall modernist skyscraper situated on the foreshore, close to the Cape Town International Convention Center in the City Bowl area of Cape Town. The spired antenna on the building’s roof is 22m tall and was lifted into place by helicopter just prior to its completion in 1993.
