Manhattan Quarter coming soon to Century City

Manhattan Quarter, Rabie’s latest residential development at Century City comprising 63 spacious sectional title apartments, is being released for sale in May.

Rabie development manager, Miguel Rodrigues, says the apartments are on average much larger than those that have been developed at Century City to date and will vary in size from 70m² one-bedroom units to a 229m² four-bedroom penthouse.

“These sizes exclude balconies from 10m² to 65m². These apartments are ideal for living in and we expect a large percentage of buyers to be owner occupiers. The units are more spacious than usual and are also very centrally located within easy reach of Canal Walk shopping centre, schools and crèches.”

Manhattan Quarter is being built on a site adjoining Manhattan Towers – a 15-storey block of 82 apartments set over a ground floor commercial component including a restaurant and conference facilities – and Manhattan Wharfside – a strip of single and double storey apartments fronting onto the Grand Canal. The existing Manhattan components were built in red facebrick and this architectural element will be carried through to Manhattan Quarter.

Apartments are priced from R1.6 million to R4.8m and all apartments will have secured, covered parking for two cars, which is a first for Century City.

“Two, three and four bedroom apartments will each get two bays and all the one-bedroom units will get tandem bays.”

Rodrigues says apartments would either overlook the Grand Canal or the largest public park in Century City.

The apartments will be housed in two adjoining blocks with a staggered skyline of three, four and five storey sections. Being developed at a total cost of R150m, Manhattan Quarter will be serviced by two lifts off a central lobby with a desk for a concierge.

The rest of the Manhattan precinct is also being developed and will include a commercial component, a restaurant, a large park and a crèche.

Construction of Manhattan Quarter, which was designed by Munnik Visser Architects, is to be undertaken by Big Ben Construction and is due to start in July with transfers scheduled for October 2016.

Brian Usher of Property World, the on-site sales agency for Rabie’s new residential developments at Century City, says sales are expected to be brisk in line with the two previous developments – Mayfair and the Matrix – which both sold out within the first 45 minutes at their respective launches.

He says the list of would-be buyers who attended the Matrix launch but who had not managed to secure a unit would being given the first opportunity to buy at Manhattan Quarter before the development is released to the broader market.

“They left the Matrix launch disappointed so to be fair we are giving them first bite.”
