Another wonderful Johannesburg building has been covered with illegal advertising (enthusiasts on the ground have reported that this one has been up for a while). The St Andrews Building was designed by the respected firm Moffat & Harvey and completed in 1936. It is located on the corner of Commissioner and Rissik Streets (opposite the Provincial Heritage Resources Authority). Click here for full details. The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation has given the building an 'A' rating (Outstanding heritage value. Don't touch our treasures). Please use this thread to  add background and updates.
