This beautiful Modernist building is the Werdmuller Centre , and it connects Claremont Station with Main Road in Cape Town.

In recent years, the Werdmuller Centre has not been well maintained, and now developers have their eyes on the valuable real estate it occupies. It looks likely to be demolished.

On Wednesday 5 December , there will be a public presentation of the Heritage Impact Assesment regarding the demolition of the Werdmuller Centre.

To show your support against its demolition, attend the meeting at 5pm. It will be held at 71 Hout Street, Cape Town, on the First floor of the Cape Institute.

If you’re unable to attend, you can add your signature to a petition. Send an email to to find out more.
