New Stock Exchange hotel opens in Woodstock

Stock Exchange, the new hotel that opened in Woodstock, Cape Town early in March.

Woodstock in Cape Town is now home to a new hotel, Stock Exchange, which officially opened earlier this month.

The hotel is managed by Newmark Hotels, Residences, Reserves & Lodges, a hospitality group pioneered by Neil Markovitz. The group also includes nearby properties such as the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, the Queen Victoria Hotel and The Onyx, which opened in December 2018, and a number of other properties in Southern and East Africa.

Stock Exchange is in the WEX1 development – a mixed-use building that includes residential units, restaurants, a swimming pool, a gym, an entertainment deck and retail outlets. The greater building, on Albert Road opposite the Woodstock Exchange and close to The Old Biscuit Mill, was designed by Vivid Architects and was developed by property development company, Signatura in partnership with Indigo Properties.

Stock Exchange comprises 33 units including studios, studio deluxe units and two-bedroom apartments. The rooms have been decorated in three themes: urban jungle, urban art and urban pattern, conceptualised, designed and implemented by Tracy Lee Lynch and her team at Studio Leelynch.

“The greater interior design principle places much emphasis on the celebration of local talent and the formation of a genuine connection with the neighbourhood. Furniture and décor items in the Stock Exchange’s rooms are pinpointed on a design map of Woodstock, enabling guests to discover where locally made furniture, art and décor items in the rooms were crafted, painted and manufactured,” says Lynch.

The property is close to a MyCiTi bus stop, bicycle lanes and a train station, allowing for easy access to Woodstock’s vibrant points of interest and Cape Town’s tourist attractions. Walking tours are available through reception, also allowing guests to discover the region,” says Newmark managing director, Neil Markovitz.
