Dundas Park, home to the new distribution centre of global medical technologies firm Stryker.


Companies specialising in health care have high standards and demands on real estate strategy, with the new distribution centre of Stryker in Cape Town being a prime example. With an increasing number of medical companies have based themselves in Cape Town in recent years, tenants have bespoke fit-out requirements on both their office environment and supply chains to support overall operational success. As one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, Stryker sought to optimise its efficiency and agility with a new distribution centre in Parow Industria. Baker Street Properties was mandated to deliver an innovative real estate solution, represented by industrial property broker Martin Reynolds.

  • Surgical equipment and surgical navigation systems.
  • Patient handling and emergency medical equipment.
  • Neurosurgical, neurovascular and spinal devices 

A more agile real estate strategy 

The firm sought to optimize reaction times in all major hospitals in the Western Cape through a new industrial real estate strategy. In particular, a new distribution facility was proposed to accommodate the supply-chain process supported by a significant A-grade office component. Further unique requirements included wash bays, parking and medical storage areas.   

New builds and developments are often perfectly placed for tenants who seek to improve overall efficiency. Combined with a need for being responsive to certain hospital locations, Parow Industria was identified as an optimal location. According to Reynolds, the newly built Dundas Park was particularly attractive due to the development’s high build quality, solar power solutions, A-grade offices and support from the landlord: “Austen Dundas Properties played a significant role in accommodating Stryker’s bespoke fit-out requirements, which was a key element of the successful solution.” The company signed a 10-year lease, signalling a significant commitment to the local market.
