Perched on the Foreshore at Harbour Place, The Rockefeller – a 395-apartment residential development by Ryan Joffe Properties and Narrative – provides upmarket hotel-style living with comprehensive, masterfully designed facilities.
Scheduled for completion right in time for the Cape Town summer season in early December, the development is located on prime real estate next door to the R14bn Harbour Arch mixed-use precinct development, within easy reach of the Cape Town International Convention Centre and the V&A Waterfront, and a quick Uber ride from a host of restaurants, shops, nightlife and cultural attractions. The Rockefeller is packed full of amenities that service residents and hotel guests’ every need. The ground floor boasts a double volume lobby, 24-hour concierge and security, as well as three premium restaurant offerings.
At the Corner Deli, you’ll find artisan coffee, salads, wraps, pastries and a range of other delicious snacks in eco-friendly, ready-to-go packaging, while The Empire serves wholesome breakfasts, wood-fired pizzas, juicy burgers and mouth-watering Lindt white chocolate cheesecake. Prime Cut Steakhouse and Seafood is an intimate 40-seater grill serving wet- and dry-aged beef, shellfish and Knysna oysters accompanied by a world-class wine list. Alternatively, diners can grab a light bite at the standing Miso Sushi and Noodle Bar. There’s also a reasonably priced convenience store and room service available. One floor up, you’ll find the fitness centre, drop-and-go laundromat, conference facilities and meeting rooms, as well as the Ideas Cartel, a co-working space for residents and hotel guests.
Beyond that, The Rockefeller’s 395 luxury apartments stretch up over 18 floors before culminating in the rooftop Skye Bar and pool with sweeping views of Table Bay, the city and Table Mountain. The swimming pool has been specifically designed to be enclosed by large windows and a retractable roof to make it available for use throughout the year.
Newmark Hotels facilitates and manages The Rockefeller hotel rental and has a wide range of premium units. Epitomising the city’s penchant for cosmopolitan fashion, its design is inspired by a sleek, modern aesthetic that adds to its setting. Priced from R1,515m, apartments at The Rockefeller are a good choice for investors looking to bolster their portfolio. To make things even more appealing, the developer is offering buyers a four-year rental guarantee returning a 7% net yield for a period of 48 months.
