Rabie to launch retirement oasis in Century City
Rabie, the main developer in Century City, has announced that their latest offering within the precinct will take the shape of a luxury retirement development. Oasis Life Century City is set to launch in November 2023, which promises an unmatched lifestyle tailored for the modern-age retiree.
This experienced property developer, who has over four decades of successful developments under their belt, believes that Century City is the quintessential destination for a retirement offering. According to Rabie, the unrivalled security, natural beauty and recreational opportunities are what position the 15-minute smart mini-city as the ideal place to retire.
According to John Chapman, Director of the Rabie Property Group, Oasis Life Century City has been designed to integrate seamlessly with Century City’s natural beauty while offering a secure and enriching lifestyle. “This exciting new development is on the edge of Ratanga Park, a lush 16-hectare green space developed with an investment exceeding R100 million. The park, meticulously maintained by the Century City Property Owners Association (CCPOA), serves as a pristine green lung for both residents and the public. Throughout the precinct, residents benefit from cycle-friendly avenues and an expansive 8.5-kilometer canal network, providing leisure opportunities such as canoeing, kayaking, and scenic walking paths. Further to this, the Century City precinct features a state-of-the-art security system, including 169 cameras, license plate recognition, facial recognition, dedicated patrols, and a 24/7 manned Century City Service Operations Centre (SOC), providing residents with total peace of mind. Beyond Century City’s overarching security measures, individual developments, implement their own security arrangements. Residents can also select their own preferred security measures within their units, adding yet another layer of protection. Security is one of the most important criteria for people looking to transition into retirement – especially in South Africa,” says Chapman.
Rabie’s impressive property portfolio showcases ground-breaking projects that have transformed Cape Town’s urban landscape, fostering vibrant communities where people live, work, play, shop, and now retire. This success is rooted in their unique development approach, characterised by meticulous location selection that addressed genuine market needs.
Chapman, who has been with the Group for 35 years, and has been instrumental to the development of Century City for 20 years, explains why he has chosen to retire in the new Oasis Life development.
“Personally speaking – Oasis Life Century City provides everything I need, freedom from home maintenance to delightful dining options. I can lock-up-and go without ever being concerned about my apartment when I’m not home. Our core mission is to allow retirees to continue to enjoy life without worrying about the mundane but essential day-to-day hassles of maintaining a home. The environment at Oasis Life Century City will inspire people to embrace each day with enthusiasm, while not compromising on the quality of life and activities they have access to just because they are getting older,” says Chapman.
The Oasis Life Century City Clubhouse will be the heart of the community and is set to feature a restaurant with an undercover outside patio or deck overlooking Ratanga Park. A Lifestyle Centre will be added to the estate in future phases. Under the leadership of Glyn Taylor, CEO of Oasis Life, who has 30 years of hospitality experience – Oasis Life Century City promises a hospitality based lifestyle. Additionally, a vibrant range of activities will be held at the clubhouse to ensure that residents stay mentally and physically enriched, such as art classes, pottery, Bible studies, and investment talks. “Our greatest asset is the sense of community we foster within our estates. From design and culinary offerings to encouraging resident connections, we ensure our estates and communities operate hand in hand,” states Taylor.
The proposed healthcare model for Oasis Life Century City is based on four services which will be available to prospective residents from day one of occupation. The combination of a medical emergency response service, primary healthcare and homebased care, cover the majority of needs that a resident will have during their lifetime. The associated costs will be market related, and residents will only be billed for the services that they require from time-to-time. Taylor explains, “Our healthcare model will assist residents regarding their primary healthcare needs and the management of chronic conditions. We will also be able to offer recuperative, frail, respite and memory care as well as palliative care, depending on the requirements of the resident’s family and medical advisors”.
The first phase of Oasis Life Century City will launch on 2 November 2023 and will comprise of an apartment block with 63 apartments and over seven floors equipped with full back power. A range of 1-bedrooms, 2-bedrooms, garden units and penthouses start from R3 million. These modern homes boast high-quality finishes, fibre-to-the-home connectivity and either Ratanga Park or Table Mountain views. The first apartments will be ready for occupation, mid-2025.
