New Cape Town property developments to watch out for in 2017/2018

New property developments in Cape Town’s main commercial nodes continue the focus on lifestyle and mixed-use properties. Century City and the V&A Waterfront remain The Mother City’s two highest growing mixed-use nodes, positioning themselves with superior lifestyle amenities, convenience and security. In-line with the City of Cape Town’s socio-economic development plan on densification, developers are focusing on mixed-use property solutions evident in a number of new sectional title apartment, office and retail offerings across the city.

  •  KPMG Place in the Foreshore is planned to be completed during 2018 and will consist of residential, commercial offices and retail space – ideal for a motor dealership. The property will enjoy great visibility from the elevated freeway and will be a significant new addition to the Cape Town skyline.
  • The 500 roomed Tsogo Sun hotel on Strand Street is set to be completed during 2017, and will be the first of a string of new hospitality properties in and around the Cape Town CBD. Furthermore, the new partnership between Marriot and Amdec Group will see 5 new hotels in South Africa, with three earmarked for Cape Town adding a further 500 rooms to the city’s accommodation offering. The Harbour Arch development is set to model that of Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.
  • Pier Place (Vodacom) has been acquired by Aria Property Group from Redefine Properties, and is also earmarked for a potential upgrade.
  • The Harrington is set for completion during 2017 and is another prime example of a focus on mixed-use property developments in Cape Town. The property covers most of the city block with its main commercial entrance off Harington Street and retail space fronting onto Buitenkant, Barrack and Harrington Streets. The prevailing trend in utilizing retro-red brick ‘industrial’ interiors is again evident in this development, with Blend Property Group following trends of similar new property developments.
  • Emira has already started with renovations of 80 Strand Street, set to be completed during 2017.

  • The recently completed Bridgeways Precinct in Century City has seen an excellent take-up in 2016, with new tenants including Absa Barclays and Thompson Reuters. Expect phase two of this sought-after new development precinct on the corner of Sable Road to be rolled out during 2017/2018, starting with The Axis.
