Devmark launches The Block in Glenhaven

Devmark Property Group has launched The Block in Glenhaven. This new development will offer 944 apartments on completion and is the first integrated housing project in the Bellville area.

Says Jean-Pierre Nortier, Development Director of the Devmark Property Group: “We’re excited to announce that building has started on The Block. The development is located on an infill site on the corner of Peter Barlow and Bester Roads in Glenhaven on erven 14121 and 14118, measuring 7,2Ha. We are seeking to establish new standards for housing in the affordable and gap housing market through delivering on quality and doing so on scale.”

Nortier adds that the development is well located: “This integrated housing project will provide affordable mixed tenure housing opportunities in very close proximity to public transport (Sarepta Railway Station 300m), opportunities of employment such as Bellville CBD and Sacks Circle, public amenities (schools, state hospitals and public libraries) and tertiary education institutes, being only 1.2km from both UWC and the CPUT Bellville Campus.”

The development will consist of three precincts. Says Nortier: “Precinct 1 will consist of 253 apartments including 203 two-bedroomed units and 50 one-bedroomed units. Precinct 2 will have 416 apartments, of which 288 will be two-bedroomed apartments and 128 one-bedroom and studio apartments. Precinct 3 is to deliver 275 apartments in total of which 198 will be two-bedroomed apartments and a further 77 one-bedroomed units.”

Nortier concludes: “This development will be ideal for first time buyers, young couples as well families looking for secure, well designed and built accommodation in a great location. It will offer integrated housing solutions and some relief to the housing shortage experienced in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs. Furthermore, it holds enormous advantages for the area through our contributions and improvement to the infrastructure in the immediate surrounds.”
