for of­fice ten­ants

Adding to The Sanc­tu­ary’s ap­peal, say de­vel­op­ers, is the scenic set­ting. Restau­rants spill on to a deck, which over­looks a re­ha­bil­i­tated wa­ter body. Aba­cus man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Gavin Blows says a fi­bre­op­tic back­bone means high­speed con­nec­tiv­ity for stores and of­fice ten­ants, with 100Mbps speed and 250MB of free wifi data avail­able to shop­pers daily.

“This is a con­tin­u­a­tion of our na­tional part­ner­ship with Vo­da­com, which has re­sulted in cost-ef­fec­tive con­nec­tiv­ity for of­fice and re­tail ten­ants, and for sur­round­ing de­vel­op­ments,” he says.

Aba­cus chair­man Jaco Oden­daal says there is in­creas­ing de­mand for bou­tique con­ve­nience shop­ping cen­tres ser­vic­ing high- in­come sub­urbs.

“The Sanc­tu­ary com­bines a scenic set­ting with high-speed con­nec­tiv­ity and high- end re­tail. It’s also the first restau­rant node for Som­er­set West, which is a great draw­card.”

Oden­daal says the devel­op­ment also caters to the strong de­mand for pre­mium of­fice space in the area and the growth in the res­i­den­tial mar­ket.

“Our AAA- grade of­fice space fea­tures break­away ar­eas for of­fice staff, in­clud­ing zen gar­dens,” he says, adding that the on-site gym pro­vides easy ac­cess to a healthy lifestyle. “Bring­ing the pop­u­lar Turn ‘n Ten­der steak­house fran­chise to The Sanc­tu­ary, which is its first out­let in the West­ern Cape, is sup­ported by our re­search in­di­cat­ing an un­der-sup­ply of qual­ity din­ing prospects in the Som­er­set West and Strand ar­eas.”

De­signed to be sen­si­tive to the wa­ter body that borders the cen­tre, the wooden decks and re­tractable shopfronts

The mixed-use re­tail devel­op­ment, The Sanc­tu­ary, on the cor­ner of the R44 and De Beers Av­enue in Som­er­set West will of­fer fine din­ing.
