‘Garden in the sky’ at soon-to-launch HQ Sandton

Sandton will soon boast South Africa’s largest rooftop garden. The 1 292m2 green oasis will be the highlight of HQ Sandton with its 360-degree views of the city, 22.3 metre rooftop infinity pool, as well as an iconic restaurant and bar.

Part of the latest offering from developers Weinprop and Forsee Properties, sales are set to launch on Saturday, the 4th of December 2021 with prices ranging from R890 000.

The rooftop garden and leafy outlook over the neighbouring parkland have real financial value. Global findings show that homes with a park view command an average price premium of 34% higher than an equivalent home lacking a view. In the UK alone, property on commons or parks double in value every ten years.

Buyers who want to invest can select their ideal city residence from a range of studios, one, and two-bedroom apartments and secure their choice with a deposit of only R20 000. With all bond and transfer costs included in the purchase price, HQ Sandton offers a cost-effective way to snatch up a Sandton address with a monthly repayment of only R5 935 (calculated on a thirty-year bond at a 7.25% interest rate).

Living in the centre of Sandton is the ambition of many go-getters, professionals and couples, but HQ Sandton has redefined what one can expect from this kind of lifestyle”, says Milton Weinberg of Weinprop, developer of HQ Sandton.

Although convenient for getting to work on time, often apartment living in the city comes with pitfalls – a lack of green areas, no parking or limited space for onsite facilities. Therefore, we wanted to create something different and out of the box. HQ Sandton brings the outdoors indoors, provides a range of everyday and bespoke facilities, and offers a lucrative investment opportunity with real growth potential”.

HQ Sandton offers purchasers access to the finest mix of lifestyle facilities. Unlike its competitors, HQ Sandton has rooftop and ground floor amenities, ranging from landscaped outdoor areas and a unique water fountain, braai areas, lounges, restaurants, bar, a deli, a state-of-the-art-gym, work pods and coworking spaces, laundry and cleaning services, 24-hour concierge, ample secure parking and 24-hour security.

“HQ Sandton has been an incredibly exciting project to work on. Our concept was inspired by the natural world, community, convenience, and accessibility with facilities designed in an inclusive U-shape. Each apartment within this environmentally friendly 12-storey building features functional design and open-plan interiors for ease of living that meets today’s demands. Your living headquarters will overlook the lively city scene, unique green spaces, and Mushroom Farm Park. Architecturally, HQ Sandton is what the future of Sandton city will look like – modern, sustainable and the kind of place I could see becoming an iconic address“, adds Jeff Cole, Director of Messaris Wapenaar Cole Architects.

HQ Sandton is also set to achieve a LEED rating, making it a globally certified green building. Residents and investors will enjoy a more sustainable way of living with a green footprint that ensures less water and energy consumption, as well as lower CO2 emissions.
