Zeeland Pier, a high-end apartment block in the heart of Cape Town, is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
The 58 stylish apartments boast ultra-modern interiors and subtly-crafted maritime touches that reflect the history of the area – including Heerengracht Street. Until the 1930s, this street was merely a pier extending into the ocean that was accessible for vehicles. Later on, during the 1940s, engineers hailing from Zeeland in the Netherlands aided in reclaiming Foreshore from Table Bay, and as a result, Heerengracht was conceived as a grand harbour gateway to the City of Cape Town.
“Since 2000, the rise of Heerengracht Street has been relentless,” said Nicholas Simons from Trilogy (developer).
“The area has seen profound private and public investment in the form of international convention centres, a world-class hospital, and dozens of corporate, residential, and hospitality upgrades and re-developments. Heerengracht Street has truly become the gateway into the Cape Town CBD that it was always intended to be.”
“It is a privilege to return to the Heerengracht to help reimagine the aptly-named Zeeland House and Pier House – two of the last missing components of this neighbourhood’s continued success story,” said Simons.

Zeeland Pier apartments
There are four apartment types to choose from at Zeeland Pier, ranging from studio apartments to luxurious duplex penthouses.
We detail these apartment options below.
Studio apartment – Starting from R1.025 million
- Floor size starting from 23sqm
- 1 bed, 1 bathroom
- Open-plan kitchen and lounge
- Granite dine-on work desk
Available in east and west-facing options and the heart and soul of Zeeland Pier, the studio apartments make the most of every inch of space and are equipped with a full-sized kitchen with full-height cupboards and space for a full-height fridge. Cabinetry is included in the bathrooms, offering ample storage space.
Additionally, each studio apartment comes with a granite dine-on work desk as a standard feature.
The east-facing studio apartments provide residents with breathtaking views of Table Mountain, showcasing the property’s world-class scenery. On the other hand, the west-facing studio apartments are strategically orientated to optimise the sunny north-western aspect, allowing for an abundance of natural light.
For those residing on the upper floors, the studio apartments offer stunning cityscape views.
Among the studio apartments is a special unit known as “the architect’s unit”, which features north-facing windows that overlook a large atrium.
It is worth noting that the smallest studio apartment in a building often presents the greatest investment value. The owner of this particularly private unit can expect short-term letting to be in high demand due to its desirable attributes.
One-bedroom apartment – Starting from R1.995 million
- Floor size starting from 45sqm
- 1 bedroom, 1 ensuite bathroom
- Open plan kitchen and lounge
- North-west facing for a stunning cityscape view
Zeeland Pier features limited availability of one-bedroom apartments, making them a rare find and highly sought after due to their exceptional potential for letting purposes.
These apartments are perfectly sized to serve as short-term letting properties while also offering ample space for long-term rental opportunities.
Not only are these properties spacious for one-bedroom apartments, but they also provide a bright and refreshing north-western aspect. If you secure a one-bedroom apartment on the upper floors, you will be rewarded with stunning cityscape views.
Two-bedroom apartment – Starting from R2.095 million
- Floor size starting from 47sqm
- Two bedrooms
- Open plan lounge, dining room, and kitchen
- Large balcony
There are several 2-bed apartments available, with east-facing and west-facing options. These apartments show innovative design, boasting views of either the waterfront or majestic Table Mountain depending on their specific orientation.
Each 2-bedroom apartment comprises two double bedrooms, a main bathroom, and a full-sized kitchen designed for cooking enthusiasts. These apartments are thoughtfully designed to provide both functionality and comfort.
One distinctive feature is a unique third-floor-long 2-bedroom apartment that utilises an architectural quirk to offer more space than the other 2-bedroom units.
This extra space allows for the separation of your different activities and provides space for a dedicated dining area. The standout feature of this particular apartment, however, is the private balcony that graces the living space. From this vantage point, residents can indulge in the gorgeous views of Table Mountain.
Penthouse apartments – Starting from R4.795 million
- Floor size starting from 111sqm
- Two-story apartment connected by a circular stairwell
- Two large bedrooms and bathrooms on the first level
- Open plan kitchen, dining room, and lounge area on the second level
- Bedroom and shower on the second level
- Very large balcony on the second level
- Luxurious finishes
Zeeland Pier presents a limited collection of four highly coveted penthouses, which are expected to be in great demand.
Two are 3-bedroom penthouses, and the remaining two are 2-bedroom penthouses. Each category offers both an east-facing and a west-facing version, catering to different preferences and orientations.
These penthouses provide an unparalleled lifestyle, evoking a sense of nautical fantasy while delivering unrivalled views. The west-facing penthouses offer Manhattan-style skylines and exquisite waterfront views, while the east-facing penthouses offer incredible mountain and harbour views.
All penthouses are arranged as duplex apartments, allowing for a seamless flow and enhancing a sense of luxury living. Each aspect of these residences has been meticulously crafted and offers an extraordinary living experience.
In addition, there is a single Penthouse Studio situated on the highest accessible floor. Although not strictly a penthouse, this studio apartment offers views that rival those of the four penthouses. Its “view from the top” perspective, combined with a north-western aspect, provides a remarkable vantage point that captures the essence of Zeeland Pier’s surroundings.
