Sea and moun­tain as your back yard

Business Day - Home Front - - HOMEFRONT -

DE­SIGNED by Den­nis Fabian Ber­man, one of the Water­front’s sig­na­ture ar­chi­tects, Canal Quays faces north to the Cape Town har­bour and At­lantic Ocean, while the south façade faces Ta­ble Moun­tain.

In to­tal, there are 72 lux­ury stu­dio, one-, two-and three­bed­room pent­house apart­ments ac­com­mo­dated in this nine-storey de­vel­op­ment.

There are some spe­cialised units — four are du­plex pent­house apart­ments with pools and ter­races, with a sin­gle sim­plex pent­house avail­able.

Sizes cover a wide range, from 65m² plus an 11m² bal­cony up to a mas­sive 378m² pent­house in­clud­ing a ter­race. One, two or three park­ing bays are in­cluded, as is a store­room.

Mak­ing use of nat­u­ral light and nat­u­ral ven­ti­la­tion, pro­tec­tion from noise is pro­vided by soundreduc­ing glaz­ing to the win­dows.

All of the apart­ments’ main bed­room and liv­ing ar­eas have air­con­di­tion­ing. There is also pro­vi­sion for wired satel­lite TV and in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity.

Kelly Har­ris, Se­eff apart­ment sales agent for Cape Town CBD, was so taken with Canal Quays, a lux­u­ri­ous de­vel­op­ment on the Rogge­baai Canal be­tween the Cape Town In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre and the Vic­to­ria and Al­fred Water­front, that she has cho­sen to live there her­self and is the com­pany’s on-site agent.

Har­ris says: “There is no deny­ing that Canal Quays’ res­i­dents have an en­vi­able back yard, and be­ing able to travel by wa­ter taxi to the V&A Water­front is a most en­joy­able bonus.”

The last units avail­able in Canal Quays have been re­leased for sale by Zwelinz­ima Prop­erty De­vel­op­ers and Pro­ject Man­agers.

“There are five pent­houses and seven apart­ments avail­able. Prices range from R2,45m for the apart­ments and R13m for the pent­houses, with no trans­fer duty payable,” says Har­ris.

Ian Slot, MD of Se­eff CBD, City Bowl, At­lantic Seaboard and V&A Water­front, says: “Canal Quays of­fers the lux­ury of ma­rina liv­ing com­bined with an ur­ban con­nec­tiv­ity to be en­vied.

“Adding to this is the themed in­te­rior de­sign and im­pec­ca­ble at­ten­tion to de­tail, along with the fact that Canal Quays is not only close to Cape Town's top at­trac­tions but a must-see in its own right.

“As well as a well-nigh un­beat­able set­ting with magnificent har­bour and moun­tain views, Canal Quays also of­fers a pri­vate res­i­dents’ pool, sun­deck and lounge, concierge and se­cure base­ment park­ing.”

The en­tire de­vel­op­ment is pro­tected by ac­cess con­trol at all en­trances and 24-hour manned CCTV se­cu­rity. An in­te­grated in­ter­com sys­tem and alarms are in­cluded.

Cov­ered park­ing is pro­vided, as well as a car-wash bay.

Slot and Har­ris are util­is­ing an un­usual prop­erty mar­ket­ing ap­proach for these units.

Slot says: “We are able to give po­ten­tial buy­ers an im­me­di­ate per­son­alised prop­erty tour by way of a video on the web­site.

“Hence, in­stead of hav­ing to wait they lit­er­ally only have to visit and click play to get a real sense of what Canal Quays can of­fer, in a topflight video, at their leisure.

“They are pi­loted through this by Kelly, so a per­son­alised prop­erty tour of this su­perb de­vel­op­ment is now lit­er­ally only a click away.” Price: Apart­ments from R2,45m Pent­houses from R13m Con­tact: Se­eff Prop­er­ties Kelly Har­ris on 082 733 6259
