Greenpoint buyers get vibe and convenience

Green Point is one of Cape Town’s most cosmopolitan neighbourhoods and combines big-city convenience with a laid-back, easy-going vibe – making it a sought-after option for buyers who want upmarket amenities on their doorstep but who also want to be a stone’s throw from the beach and top-notch parks.

The Richmond, Signatura’s eighth development in a year, will offer residents the option of enjoying Green Point’s unique buzz while being able to retreat to quiet garden apartments fitted with double window glazing to ensure tranquillity and relaxation.

“The Richmond is the perfect embodiment of the concept of combining urban living with the luxuries associated with a Signatura development,” says Signatura founder and development visionary John Rabie.

“People today don’t want to live far from exciting shops, top restaurants and other work and leisure options – mixed-use precincts are livelier and more desirable to many buyers, especially those who want to cut down on long commutes. Green Point has almost a ‘village feel’ found in the boroughs of London and New York City.”

Designed by renowned architect Juan Bernicchi, The Richmond will be a sleek modern apartment block characterised by an impressive glass façade accentuated by exterior “fins” to break up the light and provide eco-temperature control through Cape Town’s hot summers.

Other environmentally beneficial features include all units having individual solar-powered geysers to cut water-heating costs by up to 40% and reduce pressure on the national electricity grid.

“We have paid enormous attention to detail. The 14 apartments will have significant secure underground parking with direct lift access. Two apartments will open up onto indigenous, low-maintenance gardens while the spacious duplex penthouses afford gorgeous views of Robben Island, Lion’s Head and the Cape Town Stadium.

“Residents have the best of Cape Town on their doorstep: convenient MyCiti stops, an easy stroll to the magnificent Green Point Urban Park, a five-minute walk to Virgin Active, a beautiful golf course and the popular Sea Point Promenade. The Richmond is perfectly situated if you want to shop at the V&A Waterfront, paddle from Three Anchor Bay, walk your dog at the Mouille Point lighthouse or sip an espresso at Giovanni’s – all after an easy work commute from the city centre.”
