The office sector of Growthpoint Properties has opened a regional office in the premium 10,000sqm AAA-grade Menlyn Corner in Pretoria. Growthpoint owns this new prime office address.
With its excellent location and energy-efficient measures, Growthpoint has chosen this building from its portfolio of properties in Pretoria as the home-base for its office team serving its clients in the area.
Growthpoint joins Liberty Life in this newly developed office building. Liberty Life has consolidated several offices into a single, modern space at Menlyn Corner, to reduce overheads and chose to occupy 3,600sqm of the building.
Rudolf Pienaar, Growthpoint Properties Divisional Director for Offices explains: “Menlyn Corner is a unique proposition in the Pretoria office market. Our new offices at Menlyn Corner allow us to be closer to our clients in the region and, by doing so, facilitate even better relationships. It also gives our team more time to spend at our properties and with our clients, to gain a better understanding of their businesses and how they interact with our buildings.”
With its excellent knowledge of office property dynamics, it’s no surprise Growthpoint has chosen Menlyn Corner for its regional address.
“Demand for this type of prestigious office space has increased in the area,” reports Debbie Theron of Growthpoint Properties Offices Division. “Menlyn is quickly becoming one of the city’s most desirable office nodes, and is certainly the place to be for the banking and financial sector in the region.”
Sought-after amenities are one of Menlyn’s big draw cards. These include restaurants, hotels, gyms and banks and shopping opportunities. In fact, Menlyn Corner is directly opposite the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre and next to the mixed-use Menlyn Piazza, on the corner of Atterbury and Lois Road.
Menlyn Corner is near the N1 highway and close to public transport routes including Gautrain buses linked to the Hatfield Gautrain station. Further, Menlyn’s proximity to sought after suburbs such as Faerie Glen, Lynnwood, Moreleta Park, Waterkloof Glen and Woodhill contributes to the high demand the area is experiencing as more and more corporates opt to call Menlyn home.
Growthpoint’s prime office building also provides occupants with cost savings, thanks to its energy-efficient design and technologies.
The façade of Menlyn Corner is designed to the new energy standard SANS 204 and energy regulation SANS 10400 Part XA. The offices meet the new fresh air regulation SANS 10400 Part 0, and provide 100% more fresh air than formerly required. A heat pump incorporated in the construction saves 30% to 50% of the electrical energy that heating of the same capacity would require and an air-conditioning system saves energy by allowing different zones to be activated. The offices also feature a water-wise garden.
With its environmentally thoughtful design, it also offers excellent aesthetics to ensure the best user experience. The five-level multi-tenant quality office development features an elegantly airy modern reception lobby on ground level. It has access control, around-the-clock security with CCTV, and generous secure covered basement parking for staff and visitors alike.
“We’re pleased we will now be closer to our Pretoria clients and that our team to enjoy the benefits of a top-notch offices at Menlyn Corner,” says Pienaar.
