New Vredehoek development set to break ground in August

Horizon Capital Residential is planning to break ground in August on its latest development, The Elim in Vredehoek, one of Cape Town’s oldest City Bowl suburbs between Devil’s Peak and Oranjezicht.

“The Elm will consist of 10 apartments in a four storey block, including one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units and two penthouse,” says Horizon Capital Residential managing director, David Sedgwick.

“In designing The Elm we considered the elevated and prominent north position of the site with its City and sea views, and also its mountain views to the south. Our team was determined to create a building that was architecturally engaging and which would enable residents to break away from the hustle and bustle of the City.”

The Elim will be close to Deer Park, Table Mountain trail running routes, local coffee shops and restaurants, and De Waal Park.

Sedgwick says finishes and fittings at The Elm will include wooden flooring, under-floor heating in bathrooms, heated towel rails, and floor-to-ceiling glass and aluminium sliding doors leading to generous terraces.

Horizon chief executive, John Witter, says the building façade was created to draw in as much north light as possible – from the morning sun to softer afternoon sunsets, and the glow of the night City lights.

“We also wanted to create generous terraces for each apartment to allow residents private and secluded outdoor retreats to take in the views,” says Witter.

Prices start at R2.85 million and each apartment is assigned secure parking. The Elm is set to break ground in August and completion is scheduled for December 2017.
