Wanderers Golf Club and Investec Property join forces to develop R2 billion mixed-use precinct in Illovo

Investec Property officially launched the partnership and development at the Wanderers Golf Club with a ceremonial sod-turning at the Mayoral Charity Golf Day on August 31.

The Wanderers Golf Club, in partnership with Investec Property, is developing a mixed-use precinct in Illovo, between the central business districts of Sandton and Rosebank.

The R2 billion development will incorporate the existing Wanderers Golf Club clubhouse and parking area, extending along Rudd Road and out towards the Wanderers rugby fields on Corlett Drive.

The complex will offer uninterrupted views over 50ha the historic golf course, which will also be partially redesigned and substantially upgraded.

“The proposed development will include high-end commercial office space, luxury residential apartments, bespoke retail outlets and artisanal eateries, interwoven into family-friendly oriented spaces. In addition to easy access to main arterial roads and motorways, the development will optimise energy distribution and usage and have access to smart connectivity,” says Brian Biebuyck, Chairman of the Wanderers Golf Club.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of this exciting new development. We have worked alongside some of the best and most creative brains in the business to develop our vision of creating a sustainable, technologically advanced development depicting a deep connection between the natural and the built environment,” says Director of Investec Property, Robin Magid.

“The development also represents an opportunity for the Wanderers Golf Club to entrench itself as one of the most desirable golf clubs in Johannesburg and ensure its long-term sustainability.”

“The integration of the new contemporary clubhouse and redesigned course into this cutting-edge development will appeal to the younger generation of golfers who are living and working in the increasingly densifying northern suburbs of Johannesburg as well as to our existing members,” says Biebuyck.
