Apartment living in demand, new development for Pinelands a first in 25 years

    Pinelands is set to get its first new apartment complex in 25 years, developed by Rabie.

    PineworX is a modern, mixed-use block, located in the heart of Pinelands, within walking distance of Howard Centre, Pinelands High School and Pinelands Sports Club. Its home will be the erf on the corner of Lonsdale Way and Rose Innes Way, which has stood empty for many years. First owned by the City of Cape Town, it has changed hands a few times until Rabie's acquisition a few years ago.

    PineworX is set to launch youthful and refreshing energy into the calm suburb of Pinelands. With an edgy slant to its architecture, this new block of apartments will suit a diverse range of occupants, from first-time buyers to those scaling down to a more manageable living space.

    Due its central location in the heart of Pinelands, PineworX offers apartments highly suitable to those looking to work from home, while staying close to commercial services.

    It is an exciting and ground-breaking first development in Pinelands, according to Miguel Rodrigues,  a director at Rabie. "As such, we are partnering with a stellar team of agents who is taking PineworX to market. Seeff has been the predominant estate agency in Pinelands over the last 47 years, and we could not think of anyone more suitable than Johan Meyer and his team to launch this scheme with."

    PineworX consists of five floors, with a retail component on the ground floor, apartments from floors one to four and a communal roof terrace.  Purchasers can make their choice between a studio, one bedroom or two-bedroom apartment.  Secure parking is available behind boomed access control, with a selection of open and undercover bays.

    The design of the building takes the form of a European style “perimeter block”, that provides effective street character, as well as privacy. The simplicity of the architecture also allows for ease of use by occupants and clarity in the expression of the built form.

    Being at the forefront of a new wave of development in Pinelands requires a confident building that can introduce a new lifestyle into the neighbourhood.

    Johan and Lorraine Meyer of Seeff Pinelands look forward to a landmark partnership with Rabie. “We are delighted to be part of this dynamic new development, and the few teasers we released since August have garnered quite a lot of interest already.  My team and I are passionate about Pinelands, and we’re honoured to be launching PineworX in our hometown.”

    Available from R845 000 for a studio apartment, PineworX will have 94 apartments that are optimally designed to make the best use of space and light.

    PineworX will be the second Smart Enabled development from Rabie, according to Rodrigues. “Some initiatives include electricity and water consumption which will be measured by smart meters, Fibre-To-The-Home supplied in every apartment and the lobby and parking area that will be electronically access controlled.”

    “In terms of finishes, all apartments have vinyl flooring as a standard, tiled bathrooms and fitted kitchens with a SMEG hob, oven and extractor fan.  Studios will have microwaves instead of ovens.

    The kitchens will all have engineered stone tops.  Purchasers will be able to select from an architect’s selection of finishes. The apartments can be personalised easily, and the offered finishes are a great backdrop to interior styling.

    PineworX will be completed in 2023 and is available for sale now.
