Waterfall’s commercial district will soon be home to a 37 000m² custom-built office and warehouse for promotional product provider Amrod.

Amrod’s new premises will create another new ultramodern business facility at Waterfall, and continues Waterfall’s growing track record of securing large-scale deals and delivering purpose-built developments.

JSE-listed real estate capital growth fund Attacq Limited holds the commercial development rights to the Waterfall. Atterbury Property Developments is responsible for the Amrod development project, on behalf of Attacq.

Waterfall, between Midrand and Sandton, is Southern Africa’s largest greenfield urban development with commercial development valued at about R4 billion so far. The 323ha precinct has 1.8 million square metres of developable bulk approved so far.

Atterbury has already completed the development of Massbuild’s 36 000m² warehouse facility and Cell C’s landmark 46 000m² campus at Waterfall. It is undertaking Africa’s largest single-phase shopping centre development at Waterfall – the 131 000m² super-regional Mall of Africa, due to open in April 2016. It is also developing the new 26-storey, 40 000m², PwC corporate headquarters at Waterfall City, which will be the city’s first high-rise building when it is complete in early 2018.

Atterbury director, Coenie Bezuidenhout, who is responsible for coordinating the Waterfall development on behalf of Attacq, says Amrod is joining an increasing number of businesses, from large multinational corporates to growing start-ups, that are choosing Waterfall as their business address.

Bezuidenhout says: “From multitenant office and retail premises to large-scale turnkey developments, Waterfall‘s ability to cater to modern business needs by helping companies save space, time and money, with all the benefits of being located in an accessible modern city, is proving extremely popular.

“Amrod currently operates from a 25 000m² office, warehouse and production space. The move to Waterfall will result in its operating area grow into a facility that will enable its business goals with the very latest in efficient, modern business space.”

Attacq chief executive, Morné Wilken, says: “The Amrod project is among the next wave of developments that will drive Waterfall forward as we develop the remaining 1.4 million square metres of usable bulk over the next 10 to 15 years.”

Amrod’s new facility will include 7 000m² of offices, a 19 000m² standard warehouse and 11 000m² of specialised VNA (very narrow aisle) warehousing. Construction started in October and the project is due to be completed in January 2017.

Commercial and industrial companies that have chosen Waterfall as their new long-term base include Group 5, Novartis, Cummins, Altech, Digistics, Cipla, Golder & Associates, MB Technologies, Virgin Active, Premier Foods, Dräger S.A, Westcon Group, Covidien, Honda Motor SA, Colgate Palmolive, Hilti, Stryker, Schneider Electric, Attacq and Atterbury, as well as a City Lodge Hotel.
