Imagine being able to access everything you need within a short walk or bicycle ride from your doorstep. From your favourite coffee shop to your local grocery store, everything is just a stone’s throw away.
“The balanced lifestyle we have and promote in Century City, is truly all that,” says Mariska Auret, Director at Rabie Property Group who has been the main developer of the precinct over the last 20 years. “Here, can say goodbye to long commutes and hello to more time spent doing what you love. You’ll have more time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, like taking a leisurely stroll along our canals that stretch for over eight kilometres or spending time in green open spaces such as Ratanga Park.”
Underpinned by Century City’s five smart city principles, many of which have been in practice for the last two decades, you can be assured that your neighbourhood is diligently looked after a management team that prioritises innovation and progress. From smart safety and security to smart urban precinct management, smart environmental sustainability is also key to ensuring a lessened environmental impact and natural legacy.
“Not only is living here more convenient, but it’s also better for the environment. With less reliance on cars and more emphasis on walking and biking, you’ll be doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint and create a more sustainable future for everyone,” continues Auret. “By living in Century City, this healthier lifestyle is attainable as our urban design principles encourage physical activity.”
Rabie’s latest contribution to finding the ideal balanced lifestyle, is Ratanga Park, a green open space that is open to the public free of charge. Ratanga Park was created by moving a total of 75 000m3 earth, with a water body that covers approximately 1.64ha of water. Water features, winding walking paths, points of interest and a children’s play area have been created amongst lush landscaping. The large water body, that is home to several waterbirds, is connected to the canals that flow through the precinct, making it possible to canoe, kayak or SUP from the one end of the precinct to the other.
Auret explains that the plan for the Ratanga Park section of the popular Bridgeways precinct, “The vision beyond establishing this beautiful park is creating the opportunity for people to wake up here every morning and immersing themselves in the lifestyle. The mixed-use Bridgewater development was the first in a ring of buildings on the perimeter, “hugging” the park as it were. All the developments in some way will be looking over the park.”
“We launched Nine Palms a year ago, which has sold out and is currently under construction. Our new development, On Park, is the second apartment block nestled between Century Boulevard and Ratanga Park and we are delighted to present this unique residential address to the market.”
On Park will consist of 121 apartments, which includes several studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. The top floor boasts penthouses with panoramic views over the park and towards Cape Town’s CBD and Table Mountain.
“On Park is an iconic circular pavilion building set in a park environment that has a sculptural, organic and soft shape that blends onto the natural landscape,” explains Auret. “The circular form of the building provides an edge to Ratanga Park, while at the same time protecting view lines from Century Boulevard to the park, inviting the public into the park space. It’s unique shape also provides equal wide angled views to the apartments. Your views range from overlooking the Overberg mountains in the distance, Table Mountain, and the park, all the way over Century City’s lights and Tygerberg. The inwardly facing apartments enjoy views down into the designed green circular courtyard.”
On Park will feature sustainable design aimed at EDGE certification which includes green energy initiatives, sustainable water solutions such as recycled effluent for irrigation, reduced utility costs and water-wise landscaping.
Building features include full back-up power to all common areas and all apartments, which means that load shedding will not affect residents. Every apartment also has fibre-to-the-Home pre-installed, and the building has access control and CCTV in addition to Century City’s smart safety and security measures.
“If you’re looking for a lifestyle that’s both convenient and sustainable, living in Century City’s 15-minute city might just be the perfect fit for you,” says Auret. “Here we aim to enhance social connections by creating a vibrant and diverse precinct that facilitate social interactions, community engagement, and a sense of belonging. Furthermore, designs such as that of On Park, where the building connects with the surrounding park and flows out into a landscaped courtyard, also inspires a sense of belonging.”
Living here, on the edge of Ratanga Park, is idyllic. From shopping to dining and entertainment, everything is within walking distance from On Park. There are 13 restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity, several hotels, a world-class conference centre, two gyms and Canal Walk Shopping Centre. You’re at the heart of the park and the city.
