A brand new landmark launched in Goodwood

Following from their inaugural residential property development success with The Claremont in Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs, The Foodprop Group of companies will commence construction of The Towers, a 240 apartment development in Goodwood in August this year with completion mid 2010. Offering the latest in contemporary design and providing modern day lifestyle facilities and security, this landmark building is set to enhance urban growth along this bustling node.

To Marie van Rooyen, principle of Nationlink Plattekloof, the marketing agents, The Towers is the answer to many investors’ dreams. “The development provides a lock up and go apartment in an affordable price range, and is situated close to the Grand West Casino, with easy access to the Goodwood Station, the N1 and Vanguard Drive. This combination of good security, convenient location and unique design make The Towers a very appealing offering.

Referring to current trends Marie said, “From our recent experience we have found that this type of development appeals not only to local investors, but to purchasers from further a field including those from Gauteng, Free State, Northern Cape and KZN, who are looking to invest in Cape Town.” ’There is also a growing need from people who visit Cape Town regularly wanting to invest in an affordable base here that is conveniently located. The Towers is an ideal solution to these purchasers’ requirements.” she added.

Accommodation available at The Towers includes Bachelor, 1 Bedroom & 2 Bedroom units, each with a balcony leading out from the living area. Prices range from R499 900 for a Bachelor Apartment to R879 900 for a 2 Bedroom unit on the top floor. A secure parking bay is allocated to each unit on one of the three parking garage floors, with an optional extra of various sized storerooms available to purchasers.

The Towers represents a unique and bold design principle which aims to maximize building efficiency and quality. So says Martin Commerford of Davis & Hinsch Architects, “The distinctive design is the result of a highly refined floor plan which ensures the optimal use of space and the most efficient circulation possible. The design utilizes a circular plan with flats radiating around a central circulation core. This format ensures that all flats are exposed to the panoramic views which range from Table Bay and Table Mountain across False Bay to the Hottentots Holland.”

While benefiting from views, Martin says each unit also receives ample exposure to sunlight and natural ventilation. The unique design of the individual flats ensures that each unit optimizes the use of space while maximizing comfort and spaciousness.

“Furthermore, the facades are treated with high quality and durable materials, which ensure low maintenance throughout the life of the building. Alternating panels of red face brick and rendering will accentuate vertical elements running up the Towers and enhance the curved elevations which are the trademark of this building,” he concludes..

The first two floors will offer a wide variety of line shops with expected tenants to include coffee shops & restaurants, laundry, Internet café and a gym.

Security is an important element incorporated within The Towers. There will be 24 hour manned security at entrances, CCTV coverage and restricted access to the lifts and Towers.

Bond financing has been negotiated with the major banks through the Bond Originator - OOBA. 100% bonds are available to purchasers subject to terms & conditions. The registration of transfer will be handled by Miltons Matsemela, and only bond registration fees are payable with all other costs included in the purchase price.
