Heartwood Properties spearheads new hybrid office development

The new office block will be situated in the Paardevlei precinct of Somerset West, just outside Cape Town, close to the Strand Beach and the Paardevlei Nature Reserve.

The company says this development follows on its research among tenants which showed that many of them were not planning to make a full return to the office after Covid-19; however, owing to the human interaction the office provided, they wanted to have a solution that would facilitate a hybrid working environment.

“Professionals realise they can have a work-life balance. With the airport, sea and mountains virtually on their doorstep, Somerset West is without a doubt a very attractive location to set up the office of the future. One that is high-tech, safe, spacious, as comfortable as any home office, just better,” says Heartwood Properties director Andrew Utterson.

Sunvlei is a 2 000 m2, R57-million office development offering tenants access to features such as electric vehicle charging bays, solar panels, an uninterruptible power supply battery system, ultrahigh-speed WiFi, a backup power generator and backup water tanks.

The modern architecture, designed by local architect Bruce Wilson, who is also responsible for having designed the Sanctuary and Waterstone shopping malls in Somerset West, and exclusive designer interiors, headed up by Source IBA, will be modelled against global airport lounges.

Sunvlei will consist of eight business suites, sized between 163 m2 and 233 m2, available to buy or rent.

It will also boast a 190 m2 designer business lounge, including meeting rooms, a coffee bar and zoom pods. This is available to tenants’ remote workers to come to when they need to pay the occasional visit to the office.
