Melrose Arch by the sea
Live, work, play and relax in a completely unique concept for Cape Town: a safe, convenient, enjoyable and sustainable new community-focused environment in the heart of the CBD. Everything you could possibly need to suit your lifestyle can be found within Harbour Arch’s vibrant, pedestrian-friendly precinct: restaurants, cocktail bars, shops, hotels, banks, medical services, health clubs and entertainment.
Entertainment and convenience literally on your doorstep
The first tower in the Harbour Arch precinct offers both its residents and public visitors entertainment areas on the eighth floor. This level, with its north-facing courtyard garden, is where all the life and entertainment of the precinct will take place, incorporating a variety of restaurants, cafes, theatres and a large Central Park to breathe fresh air into the CBD. Residents of tower 1 also have exclusive access to the residents-only roof top garden on the top floor, which includes a sundeck, lap pool, exercise area and a terrace.
The layout of the building is as follows:
Floor -1: Basement parking
Ground floor: Motor retail dealerships
Floors 1 to 7: Above-ground parking – over a thousand parking bays available
Floor 8: Courtyard with shops (anchor tenants such as Woolworths) and restaurants etc.
Floor 9: Offices
Floors 10 to 26: Residential apartments, with a rooftop garden on the top of floor 26. There are 474 apartments per tower
Take in the glory of Cape Town from your living room
There is a choice of several stylish, cleverly-designed studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments. Each offers unparalleled views (either of the harbour and Table Bay, or Table Mountain and, in some cases, both) modern styling and wonderful upscale finishes, including a Smeg stove and oven.
Towers 1, 2, 5 and 6 make up the first phase of construction, which will commence in 2018. Towers 1 and 2 are residential buildings, while towers 5 and 6 will be part of the Marriott hotel group. Occupation of the apartments in tower 1 is expected to take place in 2020.
Outstanding investment opportunity
There is nothing like this development in Cape Town, and certainly not within the CBD. Priced from R2.1 million, this is a once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity which is predicted to offer massive returns. As with any investment, if you buy early on not only are you able to take advantage of prices at their lowest, but if you buy at launch phase your investment will increase in value before you even take ownership of it on completion.
