New offices for Discovery

New offices under development at Century City

A new development of 16 300m2 of office space, which will include Discovery’s new regional headquarters, is to be built at Century City.

Being developed by the Rabie Property Group at a cost of R460 million, Sable Park will comprise two four-storey buildings of 8 000m2 and 8 300m2. Each block has two levels of underground parking and will face Sable Road, says Rabie director Colin Anderson

Discovery’s Cape Town staff, who will be relocating from elsewhere at Century City due to their existing lease expiring, will occupy the larger building.

David Pierre-Eugene, head of group facilities at Discovery, said: “As part of our assessment for new premises, we surveyed other developments outside of Century City and found that from a location, convenience and amenities point of view, Century City was still the best location to meet our requirements.”

Sable Park is situated in the Bridgeways precinct, which is home to a number of other blue- chip companies including the new Absa regional offices, Chevron, Philip Morris, the Business Centre, and the Rabie Property Group among others.

Also located in the precinct is the mixed-use Century City Square, which comprises the Century City Conference Centre and Hotel, 15 000m2 of offices, 51 apartments and five restaurants, pubs and coffee shops surrounding a public square and served by 1 330 parking bays.
