Classic Georgian-style apartments to launch in Rivonia

Classic architectural design is coming back to the northern Johannesburg suburb of Rivonia with Renprop’s launch of Cottonwoods, a Georgian-style apartment development characterised by symmetrical design, classic proportions and decorative elements.

“The launch of this development has been strategically timed to cater to the continued demand for sectional title units in Rivonia,” says Chris Renecle, MD of Renprop. He notes that as the area is so well positioned close to the Sandton CBD and a range of amenities including shopping centres and schools, it’s easy to see why the demand for sectional title properties is continually increasing among both investors and professionals who want to be situated closer to their place of work.

The 76-unit apartment development called Cottonwoods will be located on Homestead Road in a quiet and peaceful area on the western side of the Rivonia precinct. Renecle says that the area’s Regional Spatial Development Framework has demarcated the western side of Rivonia for high density development. “Rivonia is set to become northern Johannesburg’s new investment-worthy high density node. Over the last three years, the new area for development that has been created on the western side of Rivonia Road has been much more popular among buyers, which is evident in the high level of demand for apartments in this specific locale. “Its positioning within the inner circle of the N1 Western Bypass is one of the main factors contributing to its popularity,” he says.

Dominated by geometry and proportion, Cottonwoods celebrates symmetry in its design elements. Four of the 76 units will be created into exclusive penthouses that feature terraces with magnificent views down into the Bryanston valley. Buyers also have the option of a selection of one- and two-bedroom apartments, with the one-bedroom apartments priced from around R1.1 million and the two-bedroom apartments priced from approximately R1.65 million. The penthouses will be priced from R2.5 million.

Russel Peach, Divisional Manager of Renprop Residential Projects, notes that Cottonwoods will provide a communal swimming pool and basement parking for its residents. He expects a strong response to the launch of these units due to their positioning as well as the appeal Rivonia has for many buyers due to its strategic location and the range of amenities it offers.

“Rivonia also offers easy access to Gauteng’s major road networks and the Gautrain.

Adding to the area’s allure are the general infrastructural upgrades that have been made in the area over the last couple of years, including the Rivonia Boulevard shopping precinct, which has had a positive effect on the area. The widening and improvement of Witkoppen Road, which is currently underway, will also ease the traffic flow and further add to the area’s appeal,” Peach concludes.
The specs and details of apartments at Cottonwoods will be launched to the public on site on 30 July and will thereafter be available for viewing on site at the weekly show days.
