Two new Rabie Property Groupdevelopments, including office space for Discovery, are going up in Century City.
Sable Park, which will bring 16 300m² of offices to the market by the end of June this year, has been registered with the Green Building Council of South Africa, aiming for Green Star accreditation.
It will use recycled effluent for toilet flushing and for air-cooling systems, said Colin Anderson, a director of Rabie Property Group.
The R460million development will have two four-storey buildings of 8 000m² and 8 300m², each with two levels of underground parking.
Discovery has taken the larger of the two buildings.
Designed by dhk Architects, the buildings will front on to Sable Road with views of Table Mountain and Table Bay.
The second development, Manhattan Corner, is due to be completed mid-year. It’s a mix of ground-floor offices with flats above, in two buildings of varying heights.
A dual plumbing system will allow only non-potable water to be used for all toilet flushing.
The seven offices range from 44m² to 114m², but units can be joined.
Rentals are from R8 000 to R25 000 a month.
Munnik Visser are the architects. An investment company has bought the R60m development for rental stock.
