The award-winning Eden on the Bay beachfront mixed-use development at Big Bay still 30 apartments available for buyers, says Asrin Property Developers’ director, Shiraz Onia, -but, he warns, the current level of enquiries indicates “without much doubt” that full sell-out will be achieved by the end of summer.
The architects, Stauch Vorster, designed a mixed-use complex for this beachfront site that has a range of retail outlets on the ground floor and above this 171 apartments on two floors.
These, says Onia, can lay claim to being among the most sophisticated apartments in the Western Cape – some 60% have views of Table Bay, Robben Island, and/or the iconic north east face of Table Mountain. Others look down into the four wind free internal courtyards where many of the centre’s13 restaurants/bistros and coffee shops have their premises.
Certain of the top floor apartments have barrel vaulted ceilings and all are tiled in expensive 600mm by 600mm porcelain tiles. The kitchens are fully equipped with ample built in cupboards and granite and Caesarstone countertops.
The apartments have their own secure parking on the lower basement of the complex, entrance to which is guarded and the interiors of which are CCTV monitored.
Access to the apartments is by dedicated lifts to which entrance can only be obtained by means of biometric fingerprint recognition.
Onia stressed not only that these apartments represent a new level of sophistication on the Cape’s West Coast, comparable to those of the best units in the V&A Waterfront, Clifton, Fresnaye and Bantry Bay, but Eden on the Bay, he said, was the last Cape project ever to be allowed direct frontage onto a beach.
“All that separates us from the water is a stretch of lawn and beach sand. Cape Metro regulations now prohibit any more such projects – but local residents, shoppers and visitors love the arrangement.”
Eden on the Bay, he said, has become the new social hub of the West Coast and is ideally suited to those who are gregarious, cosmopolitan and enjoy a chic sophisticated lifestyle.
The remaining Eden on the Bay units are priced at R1,65 million to R5,4 million. They have floor areas of 50 to 130m² and, as indicated, they come in both simplex and duplex configurations.
