Top brands move to the Boule­vard of­fice park

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

TOP LO­CAL and in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies have ei­ther moved or are in the process of mov­ing to the Boule­vard of­fice park, with ten­ants tak­ing up more than 26 000m of AAA grade space in this land­mark de­vel­op­ment.

Al­though much of the of­fice space in the seven blocks has al­ready been ac­counted for, there is still prime space avail­able for ten­ants looking for qual­ity offices, says Dave Rus­sell, a di­rec­tor of Baker Street Prop­er­ties.

“ We have a l r e a dy ne g o t i at e d leases for a size­able por­tion of the de­vel­op­ment. Top i nter nati onal brands such as Zurich Rein­sur­ance and Swiss Re, as well as ma­jor lo­cal com­pa­nies Med­scheme and Alexan­der Forbes, have to­gether signed leases for 20 000m of the avail­able space. Other ten­ants in­clude ad­ver­tis­ing/mar­ket­ing com­pa­nies Quirk e Ma r k e t i n g , T h e Te a mwo r k s , We­bafrica, and Bester Burke, and CN Fur­ni­ture which is part of the Bid­vest Group, has taken prime show­room space fac­ing Easter n Boule­vard. It is in­ter­est­ing to see how the of­fice park ap­peals to fi­nanc i a l a nd c r e at ive t e nants, ” s ays Rus­sell.

Baker Street Prop­er­ties was first to move into their premises in June this year. Sub­se­quently other ten­ants and owner/oc­cu­piers have taken oc­cu­pa­tion.

The Boule­vard is lo­cated on the East­ern Boule­vard and is the largest CBD fringe of­fice com­plex in Cape Town and one of the largest ded­i­cated of­fice parks in South Africa. The de­vel­op­ment has a podium level, un­der which there are three base­ments pro­vid­ing al­most 1 900 park­ing bays for ten­ants and vis­i­tors, says Rus­sell.

“The Boule­vard is an ar­chi­tec­tural gem. The floors in each of the blocks have a slab-to-slab height of 4m with a ceil­ing height of 3.2m. This, com­bined with floor-to-ceil­ing height win­dows com­ple­mented by gran­ite fin­ishes and great views cre­ates im­pres­sive of­fice space in a se­cure of­fice park.”
