Brackenfell Industrial Properties
27 March 2020

Top Considerations for Brackenfell as Suburb for Prime Industrial Properties We offer an extensive range of industrial properties in the Western Cape, including Brackengate 2, one of the most recent industrial properties in the Brackenfell region of Cape Town. But before we take a closer look at Brackengate 2, let’s take a small detour to discuss Brackenfell first. Why Brackenfell Is Perfect for Industrial Properties Brackenfell is a suburb in the northern parts of Cape Town. It is on the outskirts of the city, en route to the Cape Winelands. The suburb falls under the municipality of the City of Cape Town and it is known for its many schools, malls, medical facilities, sports facilities, large residential area, and many industrial properties. But what makes Brackenfell superb as a location for industrial properties? Apart from the area being close to the N1, Old Paarl Road, and the R300 highway, it offers a residential component. This means employees can live near their workplaces. The nearby schools make it possible for employees to work close to where their children are at school and being close to shopping centres benefits employees and firms alike. For employees, it means that they enjoy the convenience of shopping before or after work, lunch-hour visits to malls, and being close to places where they can grab something to eat. For businesses, the close proximity to shopping malls in Brackenfell means their logistics, warehouse operations, or product-distribution centres can be near many of their clients. Sports facilities in the vicinity of these industrial properties make it possible for employees to participate in team sports or simply keep fit and healthy – healthier bodies also mean healthier minds. Brackenfell is adjacent to Kraaifontein on its eastern side, the popular suburb of Durbanville to the north, the well-known and established Bellville on its western flank, and Kuils River in the southern direction. As such, the suburb is surrounded by residential areas from where employees can have a short commute to their places of work at any of the industrial properties situated in Brackenfell. Introduction to Brackengate 2 Brackengate 2 is one of our flagship industrial properties. It is one of our latest developments and has been designed with several sustainability features already in place. The property is near Bottelary Road (M23) that connects it with the Stellenbosch area and, in turn, also leading to the Swartland region and its towns such as Malmesbury, Porterville, and Piketberg. The 21 000-m2 development also contains a large DIY retail lifestyle section that caters to the shopping needs of earners in the upper-income brackets. Its proximity to the N1 highway only 6 km away is also important since the highway connects Cape Town with the inland regions of South Africa. This is excellent news for product distributors and importers. Fruit & Veg and Checkers have already realised the potential that the strategic address of Brackengate 2 offers and they have set up distribution centres at this Brackenfell property. The Brackengate 2 development offers superb security and easy accessibility to the main roads leading to the Cape Town harbour, Cape Town International Airport, and the central business district of the city. The development is spacious and has ample turning space for large trucks. This helps to reduce congestion and possible delays by ensuring that trucks can easily manoeuvre on the property. True to our commitment to develop functional spaces that meet tenants’ requirements, we offer customisation of our properties to meet our clients’ needs. This unique development in Brackenfell is modern with lush and well-planned gardens. As such, a tranquil ambience is provided. The development, furthermore, incorporates a range of energy-efficient technologies, further boosting its profile as one of the most sustainable industrial properties in Brackenfell. The large pause areas provide employees with the ideal spaces for lunch-hour breaks. The green spaces also help to buffer the property from traffic noise. Fast Internet connectivity and digital communication are possible for tenants, as a sophisticated fibre infrastructure is in place. Security includes 24/7 gated access control, electric perimeter fencing, and camera monitoring. When it comes to the ideal suburb for industrial properties, Brackenfell ticks all the right boxes. With regards to the development suited to warehouse and logistics operations, Brackengate 2 ranks amongst the best in Cape Town. Get in touch for more information about space availability.

Centurion Retail Properties
27 March 2020

Why Centurion Mall is One of the Best Retail Properties in Gauteng Centurion’s location so close to Pretoria is one of the reasons why many people from Jacaranda City shop at Centurion Mall. As one of the largest retail properties in Gauteng, the mall has an extraordinary range of shops, giving visitors to the mall the ultimate shopping experience in Gauteng. Few retail properties can boast the floor space of this mall; in fact, Centurion Mall has 120 000 m2 of shopping excellence. With over 260 stores forming part of the tenant mix, the shopping centre with its mix of open-air and covered areas offers a unique and exceptionally inviting shopping environment. The centre also boasts a setting on the well-known Centurion Lake with several office buildings and blocks located within walking distance or a short drive from the mall. When it comes to the shopper profile, shoppers are generally younger than at other retail properties in Gauteng. The shoppers are most likely to be parents of children that are still at school. Many of them fall in the bracket of single-parent shoppers. Dependent young adults aged younger than 34 and who still live with their parents make up 15% of the shopper total. These shoppers typically do not have children. Shoppers in their nest-building years form about 5% of the shopper total. About 19,9% of the shoppers are Afrikaans speaking, compared to the 15,8% English speaking shoppers. Females make up the majority of shoppers at 51%. The average number of people per household is 3,2 and they have an average of two vehicles per household. If you are thus looking for one of the Gauteng retail properties that cater to the middle- and upper-income earners, Centurion Mall should be high on your priority list. Sales Promotions Due to the higher income levels of the mall’s shoppers, they are less likely to shop with price in mind. A high percentage of its shoppers notice the in-mall advertisements. When it thus comes to retail properties that attract a younger, more affluent, and somewhat less price-focused shopper, Centurion Mall is a prime example. In-store advertisements are one of the most effective advertising media in the mall, as no less than 81,3% of shoppers say that they notice these ads. In-Store Ads On-the-shelf, in-store ads are noticed by 46,3% of the shoppers while aisle-end advertising is noticed by 30,5% of shoppers. Floor advertising attracts the attention of 30,5% of the mall’s shoppers. Trolley advertising is noticed by 29,7% of shoppers and poster advertising by 38,7%. Therefore, it should be abundantly clear that tenants have several advertising vehicles to choose from to bring their promotions and brands to the attention of shoppers – and that many of these work extremely well. As such, they can make use of the in-mall promotion possibilities in addition to their in-store sales promotions. Centurion Mall is one of the retail properties in our portfolio that includes several restaurants and entertainment options and these certainly also draw in many of its visitors. As previously mentioned, the shoppers at this mall tend to be less likely to strictly budget for their shopping. In addition, they have high expectations in terms of good service at restaurants. These shoppers are likely to buy the household brands that are preferred by their domestic workers. The patrons of this mall also often use the Internet and they listen mostly to radio stations such as Metro FM and Radio Jacaranda. The Internet is used several times a day by 11,4% of the mall visitors while 9% of shoppers use it at least once a day. Tenant Mix With over 260 stores offered, visitors have ample reason to regularly shop at the mall. As with our other retail properties, this mall has well-known anchor tenants that ensure regular and large numbers of visitors. Among these anchor tenants are brands such as Ster-Kinekor, Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Checkers Hyper, Cotton On, Pep, Foschini, Ackerman’s, Rochester, H&M, and Game. It is leading the way when it comes retail properties that include several facilities to improve shopper convenience, including prayer facilities, family bathroom facilities, kids’ movies, and a connection hub. Get in touch for more information about our available retail properties to rent in Centurion Mall.

Cape Town Industrial Properties
24 February 2020

Cape Town Industrial Properties that Impress Strategically located Cape Town industrial properties are in high demand. Aspects such as their proximity to the Cape Town International Airport, the harbour, main routes, business partners, and transport hubs are important. In addition, factors such as security, the energy-efficiency of the buildings, the presence of fibre infrastructure, and the available customisation options are also important considerations in the selection of the appropriate properties for your company’s industrial operations. We briefly discuss some of our sought-after Cape Town industrial properties to give you an indication of how we can meet your needs. CTX Business Park Located on Freight Road, this is one of our industrial properties that is almost on the doorstep of the airport’s freight terminal. Its location in Airport Industria makes this the ideal space for importers and logistics providers. The park is modern and boasts a large, landscaped area surrounding the immaculately kept buildings. Spearhead Business Park This multi-tenanted property offers 24-hour security. The modern facility is located at the corner of Freedom Way and Montague Drive in Montague Gardens. This makes it one of our industrial properties that is particularly close (around 10 km) to the Cape Town harbour and port areas. Brackengate 2 No introduction to our Cape Town industrial properties is complete without a comprehensive discussion of Brackengate 2. As one of our flagship developments in the province, this park, with its lifestyle DIY component that caters to more affluent shoppers, sets the benchmark for sustainable industrial developments in Cape Town. It is located within Brackenfell and quite close to upmarket residential suburbs such as Durbanville, which is around 10 km to the north. As such, executives and managers from nearby residential areas have easy access to their workplace from the various roads such as Bottelary Road (M23), the R300, and the N1. These roads also link Brackenfell to the Mother City’s CBD, the interior of the country, and surrounding towns such as Stellenbosch, as well as the Cape Town International Airport, which is 15 km away. It is one of our largest Cape Town properties, covering an area of 21 000 m2 of prime development real estate. Both Fruit & Veg and Checkers have distribution centres in the development. When it comes to developments that tick all the right boxes, Brackengate 2 leads the pack. It has excellent security in place, boasts sustainable design features, is an energy-efficient development, and has modern architecture. It also offers superb visibility and easy access to arterial routes. Open Space  Unlike in the past, when industrial properties featured mostly stark steel and concrete, modern developments such as Brackengate 2 include large open spaces too. The green character of pause areas helps to create a more tranquil environment. With the refreshing ambience of the development, it provides an environment that reminds more of a modern commercial development than an industrial one. The facilities, however, are superior in size and functionality, making this one of our sought-after developments. Technology for Communication and Connectivity Fibre is fast becoming essential in the modern business environment; traditional copper cabling for ADSL can no longer compete. Fibre provides for super-fast and highly reliable data transmission and bandwidth. Upload and download speeds are impressive, as modern businesses cannot afford to have slow connections. Many of their applications run in the cloud and using virtual platforms for tasks such as data storage and accounting requires fast Internet. In addition, companies often seek to reduce their communication costs through VoIP technology, which also requires fast and secure connectivity. To this end, the sophisticated fibre infrastructure that is in place is certainly an important point to consider when looking for space to rent. Green Character It is also one of the leading industrial developments in terms of sustainable features. All the buildings meet the XA Energy rating requirements. Water-wise features add to the green character. Several other features add to the sustainability profile of the development. Its energy efficiency helps to reduce power costs for tenants. Security Company assets and people must be protected. To this end, Brackengate includes 24-hour access control, camera surveillance, and perimeter security. As such, a safe and secure work environment is provided. This also helps to reduce your company’s insurance risk profile. Get in touch for more information about space available for rent in our portfolio of Cape Town industrial properties.

Cape Town Industrial Property
14 January 2020

Cape Town Industrial Property at the Best Possible Location Cape Town is the epicentre for importers and distributors in the Western Cape looking for suitable rentals of industrial property. With its harbour, superb airfreight-handling facilities, state-of-the-art port facilities, railway infrastructure, and well-maintained roads, the Mother City provides the perfect location for light manufacturing, distribution, logistics, and warehouse operations. We understand how important location is when it comes to bulk-product supply. You need space close to the main arterial routes. Public transport and small fast-food outlets must be located within easy reach for the convenience of employees. In addition, you want industrial property with good visibility onto main routes for signage purposes. Equally important is easy access to highways such as the N2, N1, and N7 connecting Cape Town with the Garden Route, Overberg, Swartland, West Coast, and the inland provinces. Other concerns in terms of the location of industrial property relate to its proximity to the harbour, airfreight facilities, and your business partners and retail clients. Though it is not always possible to have a location that is close to all the mentioned infrastructure, depending on your main operations, you at least want to be close to distribution routes and public transportation. Another pressing concern is the security of the industrial property. It is imperative to have at least perimeter security and access control to protect your business against crime. The recurring load-shedding crisis has again highlighted the importance of standby power and water supply. Finally, the space must be suitable for your particular operations, including power supply and eaves’ heights. You may, furthermore, require an office component. Yard space and green spaces around the facility also make properties more attractive. Knowing that all of the above factors matter for prospective tenants, we ensure that our range of Cape Town industrial property meets as many of them as possible. To give you an indication of the industrial property that you can rent from us, we briefly discuss a few prominent properties in our Cape Town portfolio. Brackengate 2 Noted as a prime industrial property with a strategic address, Brackengate 2 is one of our flagship developments. It is located on the R300, which is a main highway connecting the area with places like Stellenbosch and Malmesbury. The R300 also connects the N1 and N2 with each other. This means quick access to highways connecting to other cities and towns in South Africa. This industrial property is situated in Brackenfell near many industries, retailers, and residential areas. With the superb highway and main-route access, the address also allows for easy access to the Cape Town International Airport (15 km) and harbour (25 km). It is also adjacent to Bottelary Road, which leads to Stellenbosch to the east, Somerset West to the south-east, and the Cape Town CBD to the west. With electric perimeter fencing in place, in addition to 24-hour access control and camera surveillance, it ticks all the boxes in terms of superb security. This industrial property also offers a tranquil work environment with its park-like setting, thanks to well-manicured, lush gardens. The open spaces, water-wise features, and shade trees create a natural and relaxing setting. Internet connectivity, fast data uploads and downloads, and reliable voice communication are essential for modern businesses – and Brackengate 2 does not disappoint. To this end, the development includes fibre infrastructure. The development provides facilities for light manufacturing, logistics, and warehousing, in addition to a DIY lifestyle component. Golf Air Park and Golf Air Park II If you want to rent space close to the Cape Town International Airport, you cannot ask for a better address than in Airport Industria.

The address facilitates good access to highways leading to the CBD and other towns in the Western Cape.

Foreshore Commercial Properties
14 January 2020

The Towers as One of the Landmark Foreshore Commercial PropertiesThe Towers is one of the most prominent Foreshore commercial properties. The recently refurbished property boasts a prestigious address on the Foreshore in Cape Town. Located at 2 Heerengracht Street, at the corner of Hertzog Boulevard, the high-rise office building is one of the landmark commercial properties in the Cape Town CBD.More About the ForeshoreA glimpse of the Foreshore provides insight as to the popularity of commercial properties in this part of Cape Town. The area is located between the historic central district of the Mother City and the modern port area. The area was developed on land that was originally reclaimed from Table Bay in the forties for the replacement of the Duncan Dock of the ageing harbour at that time. A large part of the Foreshore consists of road and rail infrastructure. With its location almost at the Cape Town’s port, the Foreshore is a popular area for companies involved in imports and logistics. The Cape Town Station and the Table Bay Harbour are two prominent transport infrastructure developments on the Foreshore. Buildings of note in the area include the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), the Artscape Theatre Centre, and the Civic Centre.The area was developed according to the Foreshore Plan. With many top commercial properties forming part of the area, blue-chip companies compete for office space in properties such as The Towers. As one of the reference-point commercial properties in the CBD area, The Towers provides modern and vibrant office space. The complex consists of three towers, hence the name of the property. With office space large enough for 2800 people, 1600 vehicle parking bays, and 2000 m2 of retail space forming part of the complex, it certainly has an impressive footprint. As with all our commercial properties, we take pride in the re-imagining and refurbishing of the four-decade-old building. Looking at the modern building today, one can hardly believe that it has been part of the Cape Town skyline for more than 40 years. With a modern architecture that includes a stunning glass exterior and equally impressive communal areas, it is one of the commercial properties in the Western Cape that will remain trendy in its design and space offering for at least another 30 years.The eco-friendly complex has a new floor plan that includes a columnless space. The new façade helps to filter out 60% of the UV light. This reduces the costs of cooling and heating in the building. In addition, the new façade allows for maximum utilisation of natural light to save on electricity costs related to interior lighting. The fins surrounding the building are fitted with energy-efficient LED lights, which light up the building at night. This provides this commercial development with a stunning appearance when it is dark and certainly adds to the aesthetic appeal of the city at night. The LED fins highlight Table Mountain and Robben Island during the day, whilst drawing the focus to many of Cape Town’s landmarks at night. Tenants include blue-chip firms such as Sasfin Bank Ltd, MOL South Africa (Pty) Ltd, Redefine Properties Ltd, Santam Ltd, Trencor Service (Pty) Ltd, no fewer than three embassies, Incubeta Holdings (Pty) Ltd, and Fairbridges Wertheim Becker Attorneys.Standard Bank is the only tenant of Tower North, while The City of Cape Town and several of their council departments occupy the Tower South. On the retail front, a large and trendy Food Lover’s Eatery occupies space on the ground floor, while the popular Seattle Coffee Company has an outlet in the Food Lover’s Eatery store. The building complex features neat and contemporary bathrooms that include disabled ablutions. Each floor has showers. Cyclists can make use of the supplied cycling racks. With 13 floors dedicated to parking, employees benefit from the on-site parking close to their offices. The parking ratio is 3/100. With its address close to Cape Town’s port, The Towers is also near main routes and freeways, public-transport facilities, and the main Civic Centre MyCiTi bus terminal. The Cape Town train station is next to the complex. When it comes to commercial properties of note, The Towers stands out as one of the most prominent buildings on the Foreshore.
