60% of The Legacy in Green Point sold since World Cup
SEEFF has sold 60 percent of the flats in The Legacy, the modern residential block in Green Point which is rapidly nearing completion.
The average price for the flats is R32 000m2, says Ian Slot, MD of Seeff Atlantic Seaboard, CBD, City Bowl, V&A and Camps Bay.
“The new owners will be able to move in in mid-February 2011, instead of having to wait the usual 18 to 24 months for the development to be completed. A show unit will soon be ready for viewing, so prospective buyers can experience The Legacy lifestyle on site.”
The Legacy is at the foot of the Cape Town Stadium, and within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront, Portside Centre, the new golf course, the Cape Quarter shopping complex, the new Urban Park and many clubs and restaurants.
It is a joint venture between property builders and developers Saul and Paul Berman and the co-founders of Ajax Cape Town soccer team, property developers John and George Comitis.
“We wanted to time the start of our marketing campaign for the block to World Cup visitors. T h e B e r ma n s h a d a l r e a d y secured the land, and it fitted our dream perfectly,” says John Comitis.
Seeff agents Adrian Mauerberger and Melanie Truss say the development’s 16 larger north-facing units offer exceptional light and views of Robben Island, Signal Hill and the Cape Town Stadium. The 24 smaller mountain-and side-facing units offer more affordable accommodation.
Truss says that most of the side-facing and two-bedroom units have been sold. These flats range in size from 46m² to 100m² and are priced from R995 000 to R4.49 million.
“Only seven of these units are left, and a number of mountain-facing units under offer are priced from R1.35m for 50m2. We have also sold two of the four two-bedroom penthouses. However, every unit is like a penthouse because there is no difference in layout, structure and finishes – it’s just that the views get better the higher you go. The remaining penthouses offer remarkable views at R3.895m.”
The three garden flats – one of which has a private pool – are still available for under R1.8m. Mauerberger says the gardens sizes vary from 25m2 to 87m2, so small pets will be quite at home.
He says there is good security on the bottom level and these flats have direct access from the basement parking g a r a g e where o ne - b e d r o o m units are allocated a single parking bay, and two-bedroom units have two parking bays.
There are also two lifts, a 24-hour concierge and a rooftop deck with a bar area as well as a lap pool.
