Cape Town Industrial Property

Published: 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.
