Growthpoint Properties and Zenprop Property Holdings are developing a new global head office for financial services group Discovery. The 85 000 square metre building is located on the corner of Rivonia Road and Katherine Street is earmarked for completion in 2017. Discovery will relocate from West Street. We wait to see what will happen to the West Street building. The office block consists of 9 underground basement levels, 1 ground level podium slab and 2 towers consisting of 9 levels each, above ground, with a link bridge between the towers. A 5 Star GBCSA rating will be targeted for the project.
