The Club precinct in Pretoria nears completion

Atterbury’s Pretoria precinct development, The Club, is revitalising an existing area with the vision of a quality lifestyle at the heart of the neighbourhood of Hazelwood and Waterkloof.



When Pretoria-based Atterbury bought the property in 2007, the buildings were in dire need of a total refurbishment, and required complete demolition, says Atterbury’s development manager, Wiehan Strydom.

“The vision for The Club was carefully matched to the upmarket area in which it is situated. Being respectful of how this property interacts with and impacts on its neighbours, Atterbury adopted the view that a sophisticated retail, restaurant and lifestlyle mix would be suitable and sustainable. We felt this would be a great investment and would enhance the area while providing appropriate facilities for neighbouring communities.”

Work on the precinct started in 2009 with the construction of Club One. Now, the entire development is in its final stages with all phases either complete or under construction.

The Club precinct is already home to 14 000m² of retail, restaurants and offices in Club Retail and Club One. The 5 200m² Club Two will house a modern and high-tech 3 300m² Planet Fitness Megaclub, as well as A-grade offices. The demand-driven development of the 10 000m² Club Three will include a medical day hospital of around 5 000m² and 15 residential units. Also, construction is already well under way on The Club Advocates’ Chambers.

The new Planet Fitness Megaclub will open in September, and the Advocates’ Chambers will be completed by November.

At the day hospital specialist doctors will perform spinal surgery procedures, plastic surgeries, and ear, nose and throat operations, as well as treat skin cancers. This centre will consist of consulting rooms, three surgical theatres and the associated beds needed for recovery. It will be the final phase of The Club development and completed in March 2018.

Strydom says: “Atterbury followed the required rezoning process where there were some objections to mitigate, and then provided solutions for the impact of traffic from the development, including undertaking roads and service upgrades required in the area.

“Our patience has paid off. The result is a well-thought-out, high-quality development that enhances the value of the surrounding residential area.”

He says Atterbury is investing even more in the area by moving its own head office to The Club from October. This means the Club is essentially fully let, with only a 235m² pocket of office space still open in the precinct.

“The entire development of The Club, from concept to completion, will have taken over a decade. This is not unusual when approaching a development sustainably, responsibly and respectfully. In just more than six months, it will be all systems go at The Club. The temporary disruption of its construction will pass, leaving an asset that creates long-term benefits for its community through higher property values as a result of higher demand to live there, as well as increased security and better road infrastructure,” says Strydom.
