Alice Lane as Flagship Development Sets the Benchmark for Mix Use Office Environments

Published: 19 October 2020

Sandton, with its affluent character, is a solid favourite when it comes to prestigious addresses for blue chip firms. Our commercial property portfolio includes several prime properties within the greater Sandton area, each specifically catering to the office needs of leading corporations. A prime example of this is Alice Lane, a property Redefine is happy to count amongst our flagship developments. We are proud to say that the development’s design meets various sustainability requirements and provides a safe, relaxing, and stunning business environment for those who expect only the best.


Let’s look at the features that add to the attractiveness of this prime development.


Mixed office space gets new meaning at Alice Lane, where we offer semi-serviced flexi-suite office rentals. The property sets the benchmark for corporate developments of the future. With bespoke solutions to meet corporate tenant requirements, this commercial property offers integrated functionality, fit for the elegance and functionality required by modern corporations.


The immaculate commercial property is located at the Corner of Alice Lane and 5th Street. What sets this property apart from many other office parks is that it is a mixed-use precinct. This includes world-class specialised retail and lifestyle options in the centre of Sandton, where blue chip firms compete for addresses in the most prestigious and affluent business district in Gauteng.


Alice Lane includes three high-rise corporate buildings, all with glass exteriors. These towers are connected through a central piazza that includes green features to create tranquil pause spaces. The piazza can be accessed from three points for maximum convenience and improved flow.


With cutting edge building systems, the development perfectly fits the sustainability trend towards more efficient building management and reduced energy use. The development meets the 4 Star Green Star status requirements and has been the first Green Star rated precinct of the kind within the area.


Flexible and bespoke P Grade office space is available in this iconic setting. Prospective tenants can choose from one of three elegant pods. The refined finishes add a level of luxury not easily matched, even in corporate spaces.


Alice Lane is made for the future world of business. It includes trendy restaurants for on-site meetings with clients in relaxed, but elegant, environments. The development is also exceptionally bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly.


Commerce, lifestyle and the world of business meet at this unique contemporary styled precinct. Tenants have the advantage of having a Virgin Classic Collection gym on their doorstep. They also have a hair salon, laundry services, bank facilities, art gallery and the already mentioned dining facilities to ensure they have the necessary conveniences close by.


The property offers basement parking at a ratio of 5/100, which is above average for CBD areas where the ratio is most often 3/100 to 4/100. Direct access is available from the parking area to the office component.


As with many of our other prime properties, Alice Lane has standby water and power supply to minimise the effects of utility service delivery interruptions. A central reception area and shared kitchen facilities are included.


It’s close to the Sandton City Mall, US Consulate General, Audi Centre, Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Sandton Central Park, The Place, Sandhurst Towers and Nelson Mandela Square.


Public transport facilities are nearby and include the Alice Lane bus stop, which is a mere 3-minute walk away. The Gautrain Station can be reached on foot within 11 minutes or by car within 4 minutes. Other bus stops within short walking distance include the Fredman Drive and Sandhurst bus stops, to name only two of several nearby public bus stop facilities.


The property has two lanes for entrance and exit purposes to minimise the risk of traffic congestion. It provides safe access for cyclists and pedestrians from the bridge at the Grayston off-ramp.


In Conclusion


Sustainable building and workplace developments are not just a passing fad. Future business environments will be built in line with worldwide spatial planning trends. The idea is to bring the retail, lifestyle, and office environments closer to one another. This will help to reduce traffic congestion in the CBD areas of suburbs and cities. At the same time, healthier lifestyles and work environments will be encouraged.


As leaders in commercial, retail and industrial property developments and rentals, Redefine ensures that our renovated and new property developments reflect our commitment to sustainable work and living environments. Alice Lane is an example of this, and certainly serves as a testament to our commitment to creating highly functional and state-of-the-art business facilities that unfailingly meet tenant requirements.
