Century City to house virtual office service centre

The four storey modern building, designed by Vivid Architects, is being developed as a joint venture between The Business Centre and the Rabie Property Group at a cost of R85 Million.



The group provides furnished, serviced offices to businesses of various sizes in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal but this will be their first Business Centre in Cape Town, extending their national footprint.

The four storey modern building, designed by Vivid Architects, is being developed as a joint venture between The Business Centre and the Rabie Property Group.

Bulk earthworks are currently underway with the main contractor expected to move on site shortly with completion scheduled for June 2013.

CEO Andrew Utterson said the Cape Town offices would bring to six the number of business centres in the group. Together this would provide a combined Gross Lettable Area of 22 500 square metres and 740 individual offices making them the single largest serviced office company in South Africa. The group, which was launched in 2005 by the three founders, and current partners, Andrew Utterson, Travers Hathrill, and Ceri James, currently operates three Business Centres in Gauteng (Bryanston, Rivonia, and Fourways) and one in Umhlanga and is set to open a fourth Business Centre in Broadacres, Gauteng in November this year.

He said the Business Centre not only provides furnished office suites but also a broad range of services which include cutting edge, reliable technology, modern state of the art meeting rooms, and presentation facilities, a café service in each centre, document centres, generator backup power, CCTV, and ample secure parking.

“One of the key requirements for any Business Centre, is that it is situated in a prime location, with easy access, to all major routes, restaurants, and shopping facilities. The new Century City Business Centre, meets all these exact requirements”

Utterson said technology underpins the backbone of The Business Centre, and supports their expanding customer base.

“The technology services offered vary from simple email and internet connectivity, to more complex server hosting, data management, backups and virtual private networks (VPN), all run from within the framework of each Business Centre, and its secure server room,” he said.
He said the Century City Business Centre would be fully serviced so tenants would be able to immediately start running their business when they moved in which was ideal for any startup business, SME, or national business looking to avoid massive start up and operational costs, while expanding their operating footprint.

The additional range of services offered include 24-hour access, 7 days a week; secure, modern, air-conditioned space; comprehensive reception services, postal service and SMS/email notification; fully equipped kitchen facilities; daily office cleaning services and full-time centre managers. Once a client has joined any of The Business Centres, they would have access to any centre’s services in its national network, he said.
