Redefining city living
WORDS & PHOTOS: SUPPLIED
A truly sound investment promises not only financial returns, but an improvement in your lifestyle as a whole. That’s exactly what Steyn City’s City Centre offersT
he word ‘lifestyle’ has been bandied about so frequently that it’s easy to forget what it actually stands for – especially when it’s paired with ‘luxury’, another overused term. The City Centre at Steyn City brings these concepts back into sharp focus with an apartment-style development that redefines the way we look at luxury.
That’s because, while the City Centre encompasses the convenience we have come to expect from apartment living, it’s also undeniably – and intentionally – luxe.
Designed for comfort
The experience starts from the moment you enter the basement which houses 2,000 parking bays. Far from the dingy structures we’re familiar with, this has been designed with comfort in mind – so, to ensure residents don’t get lost on the way to their homes, the basement features 18 lift cores, each bearing its own signature design to help navigation. Green lungs and natural light have also been incorporated, so that the basement is a beautiful space in its own right.
Designed for space
The accent on human scale continues inside the apartments, where high ceilings and doorways are the norm, along with rooms that can comfortably accommodate a king-size bed, with space to spare. Sumptuousness and sophistication come standard, thanks to Blu‑line kitchens with integrated Gaggenau kitchen appliances – in fact, the City Centre is home to the largest Gaggenau installation in the world – as well as boasting Kohler fittings throughout. Air conditioning and double glazing ensure comfort in all climates and back-up generators guarantee the lights never go out.
Designed for happiness
The design of the apartment buildings is also out of the ordinary. Far from the typical monolithic block, the homes are grouped in villages, each clustered around a treed piazza. Once the development is complete, bespoke retail and eateries will line these community squares, beckoning residents to enjoy a meal and a chat.
These components add up to a development that has no rival – neither in South Africa, nor in the world. Developers Steyn City Properties are determined to make sure this doesn’t change; their stated goal is to entrench Steyn City as the leading residential lifestyle estate in the world, with the City Centre as a blueprint for apartment living. With the development having recently opened for sales, the time is right to make a once‑in‑a‑lifetime investment.
City Centre, where every day is extraordinary.
