A look inside Cape Town’s new R1 million micro-apartments

 ·5 Aug 2019

Construction has begun on the new 1 on Albert micro-apartments development in Woodstock, Cape Town.

Once completed the apartments will range in size from 21 square metre studios, at a cost of R985, 200, to 75 square metre two-bedroom units at a cost of up to R2.65 million – with no transfer duty.

Designed by award-winning architects Louis Karol, with apartment interiors designed by leading hotel room designer Grant Gillis, all apartments feature top-end finishes and include SMEG appliances, flat-screen smart TV’s, and uncapped/unshaped fibre internet is available.

The studio apartment includes:

  • 1 Bath
  • 1 Lounge
  • Interior from 21m2 – 24m2
  • Priced from R913,000

The 1 bedroom apartment includes:

  • 1 Bed
  • 1 Bath
  • 1 Lounge
  • Interior from 39m2
  • Priced from R1,633,000

“1 On Albert will also feature communal recreational spaces, shops, a food court, laundromat, heated swimming pool and more – all part of a new conceptual design in living known as integrated living solutions which incorporates all the elements needed for inner-city living without actually having to leave the building,” said Byron Kruger, sales agent for Dogon Group properties.

“Millennials are prepared to sacrifice space and purchase smaller meterage units if the location is right. They want to be close to the city centre, close enough to walk, bike, or rely on public transportation,” said Kruger.

Kruger said that 1 Albert Road is also located on the MyCiti bus route and with an Uber point at its doorstep.

“Woodstock is undergoing an urban renewal with many exciting new buildings, as well as new businesses moving into the area, making it a hip and happening neighbourhood that is filled with plenty of interesting places and people,” he said.

Construction on 1 On Albert is expected to be completed by December 2020.
