Palm Royale retirement apartments completed on schedule
Palm Royale retirement apartments, the third apartment block in the Oasis Luxury Retirement Resort in Century City, has been completed on schedule and comfortably within budget.
This was in spite of a three week construction strike and delays caused by inclement weather during the 18 month construction period, says project manager Raynard Haupt of the Oasis Joint Venture which comprises the Rabie Property Group and the Harries Projects Consortium.
“The main contractor, WBHO, has done us proud delivering a truly superb quality product.”
The individual apartments, he said, would be handed over to purchasers from June 1.
Owen Futeran of the Oasis Joint Venture said to date 46 or 78% of the 58 apartments have been sold for a total of more than R200million representing 79% of the total value.
“Negotiations for a further four units are well advanced and we expect the remaining apartments to be sold quickly now that potential purchasers can see the high quality of the development and exactly what they will be getting.”

The new addition to the Oasis Resort includes extended communal facilities in the form of a 200 seater multi-purpose function room with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment including an HD-Ready projector, a massive 150 inch high resolution screen and surround sound.
There is also a large water fronting patio leading off the function room and a new hobbies room creatively built in a hollowed out berm that separates the resort from Ratanga Road. Many of the apartments overlook two decorative rooftop Zen gardens while the beautifully landscaped communal gardens of the resort have also been extended as has the water feature to create a scenic lake and a flowing stream onto which a number of the ground floor apartments front.
Futeran said planning for the next phase of the development was well advanced and it was likely, due to the continued pace of sales that a fourth block would be launched later this year.
The first two phases of the Oasis development consisted of Palm Springs and Palm Grove apartment blocks with 174 units in total and a Club House, the facilities of which would not be out of place in a five star hotel and which all residents automatically enjoy membership of. These facilities include a 25m indoor heated pool where regular water aerobics classes are given by a qualified teacher, a massage room, sauna, steam room, fully equipped gym, a library, lounge areas, a restaurant, bar, bridge room and billiard room.
Also completed in phase one is the Oasis Care Centre which offers hotel-style assisted living apartments, frail care and a specialised Alzheimer’s/Dementia unit as well as physical rehabilitation. All apartment owners receive Primary Health Care assistance provided by the Care Centre and a new clinic will be located in the Palm Royale building.
Palm Royale will be linked undercover to the Oasis Club and its new extended facilities.
