What is so special about this modern urban living experience is that it also extends beyond the walls of each apartment into the energetic and well-connected neighbourhood.

Salt River is nestled near Table Bay and east of Cape Town’s CBD, and is bordered by the nearby suburbs of Observatory, Woodstock and the City Bowl.

Once the industrial epicentre of Cape Town owing to its proximity to the inner city, Salt River now teems with businesses, residential properties and schools, and presents easy access to a number of world-renowned attractions, including Signal Hill, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town International Convention Centre, all reached via major motorways that connect to the entire city.

Within the precinct itself are numerous attractions perfectly suited to those working and wanting to enjoy all that urban living has to offer:

  • University of Cape Town: The world-famous university is only minutes away from home, giving students extra time before heading off to lectures.
  • Groote Schuur Hospital: A great asset for students and those reliant on government hospitals in the area, the landmark medical facility is among the best in the Western Cape.
  • The ‘Party’ Strip: Both students and professionals will love being so close to the night life Observatory has to offer. Come Friday night, there’s no better place to relax and listen to your favourite bands and DJs.
  • Devil’s Peak Brewery: One of Cape Town’s iconic craft breweries, and the perfect place to meet up with friends or for after-work drinks. The brewery has won a host of South African and international awards for its tasty beers and ales.
  • Old Biscuit Mill: The Saturday market at the Old Biscuit Mill needs no introduction, such is its legend. From traditional and modern cuisine to the latest in coffee, it’s all here.
  • 2U Offices: The headquarters of education technology giant 2U is also within walking distance of The Spectrum.
  • AFDA Film School
  • Red & Yellow Creative School of Business
  • International Hotel School
  • Cape Audio College

Residential properties in Salt River include a broad mix of old Victorian semi-detached houses, modern apartment buildings and office blocks. This multi-faceted, culturally diverse suburb gives residents and visitors a taste of the real Mother City, with a mix of people from all walks of life inhabiting the area, going about their daily routines, and sharing their different cultures and hospitality.

The Spectrum, brought to you by Evo Property and designed by industry-leader TwoFiveFive Architects, delivers lifestyle while being competitively priced. The foundations of easy access, amenities and safety ensure peace of mind as you go about creating spaces that reflect your individuality and own unique character.

Speaking to the broader property investment community, Evo Property particularly stands out in the Cape Town housing market for the way it has managed to corner the Millennial market by educating first-time buyers on not only how easy it is to buy property, but also how lucrative such an investment can be.
Evo Property understands the need for attractive and cost-effective urban housing that is tailor-made to the lifestyles of this market. Young professionals are busy people and require uninterrupted internet connectivity in comfortable, safe spaces while they work, but they also need to be able to unwind in a setting that speaks to their fun and outgoing nature.

The Spectrum ticks all these boxes, and more.
