Property developer FWJK has announced plans to develop a new R1.9 billion sectional title mixed-use building in the heart of Menlyn, Pretoria.
Named “Menlyn Link”, the development will be situated between the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre and the Menlyn Maine Central Square Precinct on Lois Avenue.
Upon completion, the 26 storey building will become the tallest building in the greater Menlyn area, the developer said.
“Menlyn Link offers a range of one, two, three and four bedroom apartments as well as five bedroom penthouses,” said Rhys Rocke, regional director of FWJK.
“The apartments are designed to be highly desirable with gas stoves, green technology, spacious living areas and entertainment balconies.
“With the convenient ground floor shops and restaurants providing a vibrant retail experience together with the rooftop club house, tennis court and swimming pool, residents will have various desirable amenities at hand to name a few,” he said.
Hugo Moller, a Knight Frank property broker who specialises in the Pretoria region said that the Menlyn Precinct is a notable attraction for residents as it is Africa’s first green city – being pedestrian and bicycle friendly.
Moller said that the area was also highly accessible because of existing BRT routes, Gautrain bus routes and recently upgraded Atterbury and Garsfontein offramps which service the precinct.
FWJK said that it expects to launch Menlyn Link to the market in early 2018.
