The Standard Bank Centre is a skyscraper in the Central Business District of Johannesburg, South Africa. Construction of the building started in 1968 and completed in 1970, it is 139 metres tall. The building was built from the top down, meaning that after the central core was built, the floors were suspended from cantilevered arms with the top floors added first, followed by each lower floor.[1]
