Travel to South Africa: Johannesburg: Photo 66
A few blocks north and rising behind the supreme court, the Tollman Tower on the left opened in 1970 to house the Johannesburg Sun hotel, the flagship property of Sol Kerzner's Sun International hotel chain, which had been established a year earlier as a partnership with South African Breweries. With downtown's decline, the hotel was demoted to a Holiday Inn, then, in 2001, to the Kwa Dukuza Egoli Hotel. That, too, closed. The ribbed building on the right is the Sanlam Center, from 1973, abandoned by that financial-services company and operating now as the Marble Towers.
