Growthpoint Properties: Blue-chips meet at 138 West Street

138 West Street, Sandton, Johannesburg.

With its prime location in the Sandton central business hub, the A-grade offices of 138 West Street have been proclaimed the latest in Growthpoint’s new series of Smartmove buildings.

Growthpoint Properties, South Africa’s largest JSE-listed REIT, owns the country’s premium office portfolio. Its office properties are designed to enable business in South Africa with top quality workspaces, combined with excellent service and exciting innovations that make it easier for companies to do business.

Growthpoint will give you 100% of your first year’s rental in allowances when you move into one of its Smartmove buildings. In the case of the well-let 10,035sqm offices at 138 West Street, this applies specifically to two office spaces of 858sqm and 905sqm, on its fourth and fifth floors respectively.

Bonolo Gueye of Growthpoint’s Office Sector describes 138 West Street as one of Sandton’s more cloistered office gems. “It is a relatively low rise property nestled confidently among prestigious giants like Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square, Alexander Forbes, Raddison Blu, Michelangelo Towers, Bank of America and Intelsat,” explains Gueye.

She adds: “138 West Street is designed to meet the needs of modern business. The building features classic finishes, a blue-chip tenant mix including Thomson Reuters and Merrill Lynch, as well as standby power, all in an intimate multi-tenant environment.”

Close to the major arterial of Rivonia Road, the high quality offices at 138 West Street are across from the Sandton Gautrain Station. This means they also benefit from bus and taxi public transport.

The office block is proximate to many of the new corporate offices recently completed or under development along the prime stretch of Rivonia Road, such as EY, Weber Wenzel and Discovery’s new headquarters.

“Being located in the centre of South Africa’s leading financial, legal, accounting and consulting firms is a big plus for 138 West Street,” says Gueye. “This node is extremely popular with multinationals, especially because it has excellent access from OR Tambo International airport and a wide range of hotel accommodation right on its doorstep.”

These top-notch offices also place their occupants in the centre of all the amenities a business could require, and everything necessary to meet the daily needs of staff – from banking and conferencing to health clubs, shopping and restaurants.
