Prestigious new development linked to Eikestad Mall

“Andringa Walk” will consist of 119 apartments, including bachelor, one-, two- and three-bedroomed units, and a few duplexes.  It will enjoy a direct link to the Eikestad Mall, allowing residents to utilise its huge array of shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities.  Pam Golding Properties (PGP) has the exclusive mandate to market the apartments, which are priced from R1.4 million to R3.35 million, inclusive of VAT.

PGP’s project manager for the development, Louise Varga, says construction of the apartments is already well underway.  The site will include two floors of retail space, including a Woolworths, Food Lovers’ Market and Virgin Active Gym.  These will be topped by a large podium level containing Andringa Walk’s ground floor and a large communal open garden.  

The 30 apartments on this level will all have their own private gardens in addition to the extensive communal space.  A further two levels of apartments above these will enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards.  The units range in size from 33sqm to 123sqm, with high-quality finishes including marble counter-tops and bathroom vanities.  The building will enjoy round the clock security with a 24-hour concierge and its own private elevators.

Varga says whilst the building is contemporary in style, it has been designed to blend harmoniously with its heritage surroundings.  “This is the historic heart of the town,” she says, “with numerous national monuments, gracious homesteads and massive oak trees lining the streets.  There is a wonderful street cafe atmosphere in the surrounding area, and residents will be able to tap into this relaxed environment as well as enjoying the convenience of living connected to their own shopping mall.  The university campus is just a few minutes’ walk away, making this a very attractive location for students, with significant potential for rental income as a result.  It is a simply unparalleled location which should enjoy sustained demand.”

PGP’s MD for the Boland and Overberg region, Annien Borg, says the developers Abacus Asset Management are renowned for their commitment to “green” building standards, including energy reduction, recycling of grey- and rainwater, and the use of natural light.  “This approach is also being applied at Andringa Walk to create the ideal private retreat in the heart of town,” she says.

Parking spaces can be purchased at extra cost in the secure basement area, where residents will also be able to rent storage space if they need to store large items such as mountain-bikes and other sporting equipment.  Occupation is anticipated from October 2012.
