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. Golf Air Park is just 3 km from the freight terminal, making it perfect for importers and logistics providers. The address facilitates good access to highways leading to the CBD and other towns in the Western Cape. Golf Air Park is situated at the corner of Robert Sobukwe and Pallotti roads, both connecting the area with other parts of the city.

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.
