Overview

The architectural cousin of the Sentech Tower, the Telkom Joburg Tower has become such a symbol of Johannesburg that it has been integrated into the city's logo. At 90-storys tall, it is one of the tallest man-made structures in Africa, and is easily visible to visitors long before they ever reach the city. Formerly, the Tower had six public floors, including a revolving restaurant, but all were closed in 1981 due to security concerns. Today it functions only as a television tower, but remains an iconic part of the Johannesburg skyline.
