John Ross House is one of Durban’s most iconic buildings, set in the heart of the city with sweeping views over the harbour and the endless golden beaches for which the city is famous.
Durban’s CBD is gaining more attention than ever. There is also a renewed sense of excitement about having a downtown address.
The John Ross House was completed in the early seventies, the 33-storey building is best-known for the iconic Roma Revolving Restaurant, one of only a handful in the world, which offers a 360-degree perspective of the cityscape. There are also more than 500 sectional title apartments in the building, many of which enjoy spectacular harbour views.
It is named after "John Ross" (real name, Charles Rawden Maclean), who at the age of 15 walked from Port Natal to Delagoa Bay and back to procure medicine and supplies. His statue stands outside the building.
