Irene business hub poised to grow
The area is set to become the next Centurion and Menlyn Park business hub, said Org Geldenhuys, a trustee for one of the biggest business office parks in the area, Route 21 Corporate Office park.
Route 21 Corporate Office Park is a R2 billion development and arguably
the biggest business office park in the greater Irene area.
"We are in the process of laying R10 million worth of fibre optic cables at the office park, in conjunction with Dark Fibre Africa, providers of open access fibre infrastructures. This means we are one the first business parks to launch an 'open access' fibre infrastructure into a gated business community. Dark Fibre will be installing the infrastructure that will allow all registered service providers the opportunity to provide businesses in the Route 21 Corporate Park a specialised range of high-end broad band services services. End users can now request a basket of high speed services from their preferred service provider. This means we are going to be one of the most 'technology intelligent' business complexes in this country.
"Besides that", said Geldenhuys, "the ROADS NEAR to the
Johannesburg, or OR Tambo international airport, ARE almost complete.
Plus adjoining roadworks. They also act to serve the Irene area.This was
a massive investment by government and has additionally opened up access
to the Irene area, and to Route 21 Corporate Park.
"I think we are going to see a more positive mind- set coming through
from investors, certainly with regards to emerging markets. There is far
less growth in mature markets like in the USA and Europe. Investors, private
or institutional, are currently nervous to commit to those markets. Africa
seems to be attracting attention. There is growth here. Real growth."
