JOHANNESBURG - Brick by brick, ladies are taking the construction industry to new heights with the Leonardo in Sandton, set to be Africa’s highest building.

A predominantly female team is overseeing the creation of the 55-storey skyscraper.

A one-bedroom flat will sell for about R5-million and if you want the 3000 square meter Leonardo suite, you’ll have to cough up R250-million.

The building is expected to come in at around R3-billion.

At 233 meters high, it will become the tallest building on the African continent, surpassing Carlton Centre’s 50 floors which for decades remained unchallenged in the sky.
