South Africa's Permanent Mission to the UN will be accommodated in the British Consulate building in New York after a R118 million project to find suitable offices to house diplomats was botched.

The mission will be renting two floors in the building on 845 Third Avenue, at a cost of $42 per square foot, for both floors.
