Cape Town’s CBD has welcomed the newly launched luxury mixed-use building, The Rubik.
The development is located on the corner of Loop and Riebeek Streets, consisting of premium residential apartments above luxury offices and high-end retail space which is housed within a distinctive modern glass clad ‘tiered’ building which is reminiscent of the Rubik’s cube.
Developed by Abland, marketed by Dogon Group Properties and in partnership with Nedbank and Giflo, dhk Architects designed the apartments, penthouses and offices within the Rubik, featuring floor to ceiling windows, 24-hour concierge security, state-of-the-art technology, fixtures and finishes, minimalist elements and lots of clean open spaces. Prices start from R2.4 million, with spectacular views over Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the ocean.
Rob Stefanutto, MD of Dogon Group Developments comments:
“The beautiful and modern The Rubik has a distinctly international feel that is in tune with global trends and influences … this exciting building, which will stand as a design beacon in Cape Town’s CBD, allows buyers to live and work in a distinctive space within the bustling centre of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Loop Street is vibrant and cosmopolitan, known for its night life, historic buildings, art galleries, antique shops, restaurants, bars and cafes”.
“This dhk designed building echoes things to come into the city centre – the wave of the future. Gone are the days of inner-city living being a novelty, and entre the days of ‘Great City Addresses’ that are inspiring to live in. Dogon’s ongoing commitment to bringing cutting edge projects to market is apparent in The Rubik” says Stefanutto. “It will set a benchmark for future developments and see both out of town and local buyers offered a truly quality product in a city on the rise in international terms”.
Construction on The Rubik has been benchmarked for June 2019, with completion in July 2021.
“When this property came up for sale, we wasted no time in its acquisitions as the location is perfect for a mixed-use development. Abland have undertaken numerous high-rise developments in the Cape Town CBD and we are very excited to bring this vision to life” comments Jurgens Prinsloo, Abland’s Regional Manager.
Prinsloo says that the building will have a modern glass façade – with offices that are double-glazed – an air-conditioning system that doesn’t use water evaporation for cooling, energy efficient lighting and water heating systems which are in keeping with green star initiatives.
“We are very excited to be involved in this project conceptualized by Abland, who have been at the forefront of creating ground-breaking spaces in South Africa for over thirty years and who have pioneered mixed-use developments that seamlessly integrate work and living spaces. We believe that The Rubik will redefine the design of luxury mixed-use developments in South Africa and offers a wonderful opportunity for those who wish to buy-to-live looking for a premier investment opportunity” concludes Stefanutto.
