FNB Portside, Cape Town


Metrum was appointed to project manage the development of the landmark Portside building, situated in the emerging financial district of Cape Town’s CBD. This was a joint development between FirstRand Bank and Old Mutual.


The client wanted to develop Cape Town’s tallest building at 139 m high. The development comprised of 57,000 m² with seven structured levels and three basement levels.


The building achieved a 5 Star Green Star SA design rating, making Portside the greenest tall building in South Africa. Just some of the sustainable features include LED lighting, ample bicycle racks and change rooms, electric car chargers and hybrid car parking bays.
