Silvertree, a new block of 31 apartments is being launched at Century, the burgeoning mixed-use development in Cape Town by leading developer, Rabie Property Group.

When complete, Ashton Park will comprise a total of 140 apartments in four sectional title blocks and seven freehold villas.

The development forms the second phase of the R270 million Ashton Park residential project and follows the success of phase one, Waterberry where 32 of the 43 units have been sold since its launch earlier this year.

Project manager, Miguel Rodrigues says sales at Waterberry had exceeded expectations with close to 78 percent in value sold requiring they now accelerate the development of Silvertree to meet ongoing demand for homes at Century City, particularly those in close proximity to the Curro Private School which opened in January.

He says Silvertree would not only be built on a site adjacent to the school but would enjoy  tranquil views over the tree lined sports field and Helderberg Mountains.  

“Comprising one, two and three bedroom units and one four bedroom penthouse, Silvertree apartments are generous and range from 87 to 287 square metres including balconies.  Apartments will be selling for between R1 185 000 and R2 385 000 including VAT, while the penthouse will have a price tag of R3.995 million.”

Rodrigues says these prices represent an average selling price, including balconies, of R15 555 per square metre. He says this is incredible value for money given that transfer of these properties is scheduled for July 2014.

Rodrigues says the apartments were larger than usual as they anticipated that there would be a large number of owner occupiers including families due to the proximity to the school as had been seen at Waterberry.

He says the four storey building financed by Nedbank and built by Big Ben Construction will offer basement parking and a lift. All two and three bedroom apartments will get two dedicated parking bays. 

When complete, Ashton Park will comprise a total of 140 apartments in four sectional title blocks and seven freehold villas. 

He says the Century City Property Owners’ Association, the non-profit company that is responsible for the day to day operations of Century City conducts  bi-annual Customer Satisfaction Surveys and the results of the last  survey had been used to inform the design brief of Ashton Park.

Rodrigues adds that all apartments would have access to Century City Connects world class fibre optic connectivity and would benefit from individually metered hot water supplied from a centralised bulk hot water storage heated by highly efficient heat pumps.

The energy efficient building was modelled by state-of-the-art software to ensure full compliance with the energy regulation SANS 10400XA.
