Atterbury has completed the development of a fully let 6 000m2 premium-grade office and gym, an extension of the Castle Gate Retail Centre which forms part of the first phase of its Castle Gate precinct in Pretoria.
The centre opened in November 2020 with a mix of convenient retail, restaurants, a dining piazza, a tailor-made kids play area, green space, and a popular night market.
A 2 700m2 Planet Fitness gym, which opened in mid-February 2022, occupies one of the building’s two wings. The other wing comprises of 3 fully let office levels housing national law firm, VDT Attorneys’ 1 700m2 head office, a 1 000m2 regional office for international audit, tax, and advisory firm Mazars, and the 500m2 headquarters of residential property developer, Central Developments.
“We are particularly pleased to complete this new development at Castle Gate with fully let offices and excellent uptake at Planet Fitness, showing that it responds to a significant demand that was uncatered for in this neighbourhood. The latest addition to Castle Gate reflects Atterbury’s ethos for developing mixed-use nodes; each new property type that we add makes a significant contribution to the overall project at every phase. The excellent interaction between the new workspace, gym and the lifestyle offering are already evident,” says Pieter Olivier, Development Manager for Atterbury.
Castle Gate is a large-scale mixed-use precinct development which is expected to represent a total investment of R6 billion. The development is being rolled out in response to market demand and will ultimately boast 50 000m2 of retail space, 50 000m2 of office space, 18 000m2 of mixed-use business park and 1 300 residential units set in eight hectares of protected green areas with walking and running trails.
