the R2.7 billion Standard Bank development in Rosebank, Johannesburg, is not only an impressive addition to the Johannesburg skyline, but also a prime example of the growing trend towards “green” buildings in South Africa. 

Standard Bank has approved R349m in term and development funding for the Eyethu Orange Farm Mall in Orange Farm, a deal which is expected to help rejuvenate the impoverished settlement south of Johannesburg.

The Standard Bank house price index improved by 8% year on year in July‚ from 7.8% year on year in June‚ Standard Bank said in a note on Monday.

Standard Bank’s new R2.7bn office development in Rosebank joins eight other buildings in South Africa to have achieved a five-star Green Star rating, and adds to the number of financial institutions and companies moving into "green buildings".
