Stunning new offices on Sable Road
A new development of 16,300 square metres of premium grade offices to be built on a landmark site fronting onto Sable Road at Century City.
Being developed by the Rabie Property Group at a cost of R460 million, Sable Park will comprise two four-storey buildings of 8,000 square metres and 8,300 square metres respectively, each with two levels of underground parking.
Designed in a contemporary vernacular by the award-winning dhk Architects, the buildings will provide high visibility and offer uninterrupted panoramic views of Table Mountain and Table Bay.
Negotiations with a blue chip corporate for the larger of the two buildings are well advanced.
The second building, which is ideally suited for a large user looking to make a strong corporate statement, is being designed to be flexible and, if needs be, could be subdivided to accommodate smaller users, says Rabie director, Colin Anderson.
Sable Park is situated in the all-green Bridgeways precinct, which has become the new commercial and hospitality hub of Century City. The precinct is home to a number of other blue chip companies, including the new Absa regional offices, Chevron, Philip Morris, the Business Centre, Thomson Reuters, Mastercard, Derivco, Northfund, Gladd Africa and the Rabie Property Group among others.
Also located in the precinct is the mixed-use Century City Square, which comprises the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel, 15,000 square metres of offices, 51 apartments and five restaurants, pubs and coffee shops surrounding a public square and served by 1,330 parking bays in a super basement and a structured parking garage.
Anderson said Sable Park was also being designed as a green development and it was their intention to register it with the GBCSA, aiming for a 4-Star Green Star rating in both the Design v1 and As Built v1 categories.
The Bridgeways precinct also boasts a Virgin Active gym and is within easy walking distance of convenience retailing, spas, three other hotels and the Canal Walk Shopping Centre.
