Sophisticated new Hyde Park apartments brought to market

More than 100 luxury units of a new upmarket apartment complex situated in Hyde Park that is being developed by the listed G5 Properties Group in partnership with Sylt and Liviero, were officially launched to market at a function held in Johannesburg recently.

G5 Properties Group development manager, Sam Silwamba, says that the impressive new multi-million rand six-storey residential development, One97, is being constructed near the well-known, exclusive Hyde Park Shopping Centre and is due for completion in mid-2019. The Pam Golding Property Group has been awarded the mandate to market the development off-plan.

“G5 Properties is proud of this superb new north-facing residential building which we are developing in partnership with Sylt Developments and the multidisciplinary construction group Liviero,” adds Silwamba. “Every aspect has been considered in the design of the building, which will be a signature residential development for our group within Gauteng.”

“We were fortunate to have been able to find a unique 4 000sqm site in Hyde Park situated within a private cul-de-sac in order to develop this one-of-a-kind residential complex,” adds Sylt executive Louis Barnard. “This will result in the residential development enjoying both good access and privacy.”

“One97 will be an upmarket residential development, with state-of-the-art single access security and is within easy walking distance of Hyde Park Shopping Centre and a few minutes drive from SA’s financial capital, Sandton. The designers looked to trends emerging in international urban centres such as New York and London in order to achieve the classic lines yet timeless, cosmopolitan feel of One97.”

According to G5’s marketing director, Justin Smith, the 102 sectional title apartments, all of which have their own sizable balconies, are available to purchase off-plan for between R1.9 million for a 50sqm apartment and R13 million for one of the lavish penthouses.

“The units are designed to be spacious and comfortable, with the very highest quality finishes. Considering the amenities on offer and location of the development, we believe that these apartments offer the investor excellent value,” adds Smith.

“An added advantage for the purchaser is that the developer will undertake all construction in-house, guaranteeing quality and delivery of the end product. This affords the end-user peace of mind that after-sales service will be top-notch.”

Chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group, Dr Andrew Golding, says that the company is honoured to be partnering with the developers to bring One97 to market. “G5 Properties and Liviero are among the best known developers in the country with superb track records, so we believe that investors are assured of purchasing the highest quality asset.

“Not only is One97 superbly situated within one of Johannesburg’s best-known suburbs on the very doorstep of the rapidly growing nodes of Rosebank and Sandton, but the architect has designed an attractive and novel boutique residential development. We expect these apartments to be immensely popular,” observes Dr Golding.

Liviero executive Paul Le Sueur says that the development and the apartments themselves have been purpose designed to offer residents a sophisticated urban-chic lifestyle.

Le Sueur points out that the building will incorporate a lobby and lounge as well as a number of other attractive features such as central atrium and a rooftop meditation garden, which the residents can relax in, as well as an inviting swimming pool. Additional optional storage facilities will also be available for residents in the basement area

“The apartments will have sliding screen doors leading onto their ample balconies, creating a seamless flow between the interior and exterior. The walls of the units will be thick, ensuring outstanding privacy in terms of soundproofing, while the sixth-floor penthouses will have their own garden terraces. The kitchen equipment and fittings will all be of the highest quality including custom-fit Smeg appliances and Grohe brass taps.”
