Exciting developments at the 800 000m² mixed-use Waterfall City, launched to the market on 13 February.

 

The 800 000m² mixed-use Waterfall City, at the heart of the 1,6-million square metre Waterfall Business Estate, has officially been launched to the market on 13 February by Atterbury Property Developments and Attacq.

Having been in the making since November 2008, the Waterfall precinct is one of the largest urban concepts development in South Africa.

“Waterfall City is the whole package. It is more than a city, it’s a truly connected, fully integrated lifestyle,” says the managing director of Atterbury Property Developments, James Ehlers. “Its design is inspired by the principles of walkable, energised, mixed-use environments to create a truly trailblazing city.”

One of the first developments to be completed, the Waterfall City Netcare Hospital, is already fully operational and a 150-bed City Lodge Hotel is due to open in November. Construction continues on the R3,5-billion, 120 000m² Mall of Africa with the aim to commence trading in April 2016.

In addition to premium-grade corporate offices, Waterfall City will also accommodate tenant-driven, low-density office developments, including Maxwell Office Park.

To date, a 44 200m² Cell C Campus, a 26 286m² premises for MBT Technologies and head offices for Group 5 (23 139m²) and Golder and Associates (6 066m²) have been completed in Waterfall Business Estate.

Work has also commenced on offices of 4 700m² for Dräger, 4 500m² for Angle Shack, 7 500m² for Westcon and 4 000m² for Premier Foods. This month will see construction starting on a distribution centre of 11 000m² for Covidien, due for completion in December, and new corporate offices for Novartis spanning 7 000m², due for occupation in April 2015.

Adding green spaces and parks, public transport and easy access to major routes, Waterfall City is poised to become an exciting landmark on the Gauteng map.
