In an affair as regal as the development itself, the Michelangelo Towers was officially launched on 24th November 2005, a spectacular fitting for the grandeur of the development and its guests. Bart Dorrestein, Chief Executive Officer of the Legacy Group, declared the building openings. Top emerging and established contemporary South African artists were commissioned to reinterpret the legacy of Michelangelo`s David.

Dorrestein describes Legacy`s vision as, Integrating contemporary art into the design and lifestyle of hotel development to create a platform to encourage the hotel industry to look to the talent of South African artists. Legacy wants to ensure that this exhibition pioneers a mutually beneficial relationship between the hotel, business and arts industries.

Since November 2002, commuters to the Sandton Central Business District have been witness to the birth of this new landmark. The Michelangelo Towers has finally usurped Sandton City as the tallest building and in the surrounds of the Sandton Central Business District.

Legacy Hotels & Resorts International, the managing company, will be marketing the hotel to the top end of the corporate, leisure and relocation segments.
