Res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment launch­ing at Cen­tury City

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

WA­TERS Edge, a new high-rise res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment of 144 apart­ments over­look­ing the 16hectare In­taka Is­land wet­lands re­serve and sur­round­ing wa­ter­ways, is be­ing launched at Cen­tury City by Ra­bie Prop­erty Group.

To be built on the banks of a canal at a cost of R350 mil­lion, Wa­ters Edge will com­prise 41 one- bed­room apart­ments, 71 two-bed­room apart­ments and 32 three-bed­room apart­ments in­clud­ing two pent­houses.

All apart­ments will have bal­conies and will be hard­wired of­fer­ing high- speed in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity.

Units vary in size from 62m² to 205m², in­clud­ing bal­conies, and are priced from R1.7m to R5.7m, in­clud­ing VAT.

De­signed by Mun­nik Visser Ar­chi­tects, the eight- storey build­ing will stand on a plinth that el­e­vates the height of the struc­ture by two floors and al­lows for pedes­trian move­ment and ex­ten­sive land­scap- ing of the ground-level plaza.

The col­umns on which the build­ing is perched have been in­spired by the man- made heron­ries in In­taka Is­land and the sculp­tured build­ing form is shaped by the canal con­tours.

Wa­ters Edge, which will be north and north-east fac­ing, is to be built on a site be­tween Aure­con and Knights­Bridge and back­ing onto Canal Walk Shop­ping Cen­tre. An ad­join­ing struc­tured park­ing garage will act as a buf­fer be­tween Wa­ters Edge and the shop­ping cen­tre.

The build­ing will be ser­viced by three lifts with at least one al­lo­cated base­ment park­ing bay pro­vided for each apart­ment. Res­i­dents will be able to rent ad­di­tional bays in the pub­lic park­ing garage which will also pro­vide park­ing and 24-hour concierge ser­vices for vis­i­tors.

Base­ment park­ing for res­i­dents will have a sep­a­rate en­trance to the struc­tured park­ing garage and of­fer di­rect ac­cess to the apart­ments through two lift lob­bies.

Ra­bie de­vel­op­ment man­ager, Miguel Ro­drigues, says this is the last re­main­ing site left to be de­vel­oped in the heart of Cen­tury City.

“It will have views over In­taka Is­land into per­pe­tu­ity as this is a pro­tected re­serve area. We are pulling out all stops to bring a very spe­cial prod­uct to the mar­ket wor­thy of its set­ting. Wa­ters Edge strad­dles two worlds – fronting onto na­ture – with the con­ve­nience of Canal Walk shop­ping cen­tre a minute’s walk away. It is also within easy walk­ing dis­tance of many of Cen­tury City’s other ameni­ties in­clud­ing In­taka Is­land and Cen­tral Park where all the var­i­ous sports clubs and leagues meet weekly.

Con­struc­tion of Wa­ters Edge is ex­pected to start in April with com­ple­tion sched­uled for the end of 2017. Visit www. wa­tersedge. cc or call Brian Usher on 082 571 7024.
