When developers Attacq and Tricolt imagined the design of Ellipse Waterfall, they knew it had to be ‘something spectacular’, ‘something sculptural’, a statement in luxury highrise apartment living that would attract investors to the fastest-growing mixed-use city in Africa. Waterfall City. The next Sandton

ndeed, the end result is striking. The curved glass façade blurs the boundary between the building interior and the surrounding gardens that extend to the city beyond.
Residents who make use of the public spaces such as the fully equipped indoor gym and restaurant get the full benefit of the panoramic views of Gauteng as well as the light and space afforded by floor-to-ceiling windows. Ellipse Waterfall’s fluid architecture makes the desired impression on the skyline.
Work has begun on Phase 2, which incorporates the flagship Cassini Tower and The Luna Club, the most exclusive destination in the Waterfall Precinct. This follows near sold-out success in the first two towers marketed in Phase 1.
The Luna Club is envisioned as a sophisticated sanctuary for residents of all ages offering a host of wellness, business and leisure options. It will include a boutique spa, staffed by skilled therapists and nail technicians. Their brief? To help residents unwind, masterfully easing knots out of tired muscles and keeping hands and feet Instagram-ready!
The spa will be housed in the wellness centre, which will incorporate the gym, a steam shower and sauna. The gym is designed to make burning calories all the more pleasurable with treadmills strategically placed to make the most of the views across the city. A welcome distraction, no doubt.
Active residents who prefer getting their heart rate up in fresh air will love the outdoor circuit, which incorporates an 800m walking or running track, and temperature-controlled lap pool. An expansive terrace overlooks this area, which also features a heated leisure pool for those intent on pure relaxation.
Can you imagine anything better than lunch sizzling on the gas braai, lazing at the boma, or a sundowner at the pool? On cooler days residents can retire to the cigar lounge or relax in the library with a good book.
The Luna Club has another major drawcard linked to the exclusive in-house restaurant – the option for private dining. If you prefer to entertain in the privacy of your own home – where the expansive views are just as spectacular but the environment is more intimate – this can be arranged too. Young parents can enjoy an indulgent yet guilt-free meal while leaving their children to their own devices in the game and entertainment room nearby.
This upmarket venue is designed with the live-work-play ethos in mind. To that end, it incorporates a business centre complete with boardrooms, conference facilities, meeting rooms and hot desks.
In short, The Luna Club offers all the facilities you can expect from a six-star hotel with endless social possibilities to boot. Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in a luxury apartment that will pay dividends. Then all you have to do is relax and enjoy at your leisure.
