Sea Point block revamped to provide luxury apartments

Construction has started on the Strand Beach development, recently launched by the Berman Brothers Group, in Sea Point on the slopes of Signal Hill.

Pam Golding Properties is marketing the apartments, listed from R3.5 million for one-bedroom flats to R8.9m for sea-facing apartments. Duplex units are available from R6.5m.

“New apartments in prime positions in this well-established and sought-after area are scarce,” says Laurie Wener, Pam Golding Properties Senior Executive Developments: Cape region.

“The design allows a seamless flow between sky and sea, affording residents unparalleled views of the area. The development provides bespoke outdoor recreation and relaxation areas, including a communal pool protected from the elements but with some of the best views in Cape Town. Two gas braais and sun loungers will make this space a popular haven for residents and their guests.”

“Extensive renovation of the original apartment block has commenced, and once complete, Strand Beach will offer more than 30 apartments, designed to achieve a balance between privacy and practicality while offering all the benefits of living on one of South Africa’s most desirable stretches of coastline,” says Saul Berman.

“All apartments will have parking and store rooms are available as optional extras. Animal lovers will be delighted to know that building is pet-friendly. Strand Beach’s prime location – within walking distance of popular amenities and with access to the MyCiTi bus route – will appeal to people wanting to avoid lengthy commutes and traffic congestion.”

“Given the growing demand for apartments in the right location as an alternative to large houses with high maintenance gardens, and the perennial buoyancy of this area’s rental market, Strand Beach is an excellent opportunity for astute investors looking for sound returns,” says Wener.
