Rabie proudly presents Nine Palms, a new apartment development on the banks of Ratanga Park in Century City.  Living at Nine Palms is all about investing in your lifestyle.  Everything’s on your doorstep. Enjoy the ease and convenient lifestyle of Cape Town’s smart city. Wake up to the tranquillity of the park. Walk to gym or go for a run along the canals. Grab a coffee on your way back. Walk to the office. Join your friends for sunset drinks and walk home afterwards. It’s urban living at its best!

“A significant part of our next three-to-five-year plan for the Bridgeways precinct is Ratanga Park,” says Mariska Auret, Rabie Director. “We invested R100m into this beautiful oasis, which forms the nucleus of the developments that will take place along its perimeter, with Bridgewater, completed in 2020, being the first.Our new development, Nine Palms, has the benefit of being launched with the full beauty of Ratanga Park on display. Interested parties no longer have to imagine the lifestyle they can enjoy living here, they can already see and experience it.”

Nine Palms, launching on 26 May, will consist of 131 modern apartments, made up of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, for sale on a sectional title basis. Construction is estimated to commence in September 2022 with residents able to move in at the beginning of 2024.


Nine Palm’s three blocks envelop a central landscaped parking courtyard and magnificent large private north-west facing garden, showcasing the existing nine feature palm trees of the old Ratanga Junction entrance, connecting directly to a new public piazza on the revitalized urban wharf edge.

These nine palm trees, more than 20 years in age, form the centrepiece and identity of the design of the development, adding real value to both the private and public spaces.

One-bedrooms are sized from 46m² to 54m² and available from R1.7-million.
