Two new office blocks for Century City

Two new office blocks for Century City

The newly completed Sable Park office development at Century City is fully let.

The Sable Park office development at Century City was completed towards the end of 2018, and is now fully let.

This five-star Green Star development has attracted prime tenants, says Jason Elley of Rabie Property Group, the developer.

“Discovery occupies the larger of the two adjoining buildings – 8 300 m2 and 8 000 m2. Discovery committed to the project early on, moving its regional office in mid-2018 from Century Boulevard.  MTN will soon be moving its regional office from elsewhere in Century City, taking up just under 4 000m2 across the ground and first floors in the second building. The second and third floors have been committed to ICLEI, Byte Orbit, Sasfin and TAL.”

Sable Park is on the prime gateway to the south of Century City’s Bridgeways green zone, with views of Table Mountain and the city.

Elley says the development’s location encourages the use of public transport to cut carbon emissions: bus, MyCiTi bus and minibus taxi routes leave from a public transport hub less than 500m away and Century City station is just 10 minutes’ walk away.

Designed by dhk architects to optimise natural lighting, each building has two wings off a central core and a light-filled quadruple-volume atrium spanned by a series of bridges at the edge of the main core.

Water for the ablutions, air conditioning and cooling systems, and landscaping is drawn from the recycled Potsdam municipal sewer treatment facility, and is then treated to safe levels.

In much the same way as the design of the building, landscaping has played a crucial role in the development of Sable Park, with each building appearing to be embedded in a green platform. A series of terraces on all four sides of both buildings work as outdoor lounges.

Building on the success of Sable Park and its surrounding commercial office buildings, Rabie have appointed WBHO to commence with the earthworks for the construction of another state of the art commercial building, Sable Corner, just across the road.

With a gross lettable area of about 7 000m2 of premium grade office space, Sable Corner is set for completion in the first half of 2020.

Sable Corner’s ground to third floors range in size from 900m2 to 1 500m2, with a roof deck offering an executive entertainment opportunity or function area.

“A glazed circulation staircase and lift lobby will link the convex shaped section of the building to a rectangular appendix, allowing for economical office design without compromising on the wow factor or the future-focused design elements of the building,” says Elley.

“Sable Corner will have ample parking in its two basements, with additional parking available within easy walking distance.

“Rabie Property Group is committed to developing green buildings and will be aiming for a minimum four-star Green Building rating on this development. Rabie have already developed six five-star rated buildings and seven four-star rated buildings in Century City, and we are working towards our vision of having the highest concentration of Green buildings in one precinct,” says Elley.
