Comprising of 15,500 square metres of commercial space, 13,000 square metres of premium-grade office space and a 2,500 square metre Planet Fitness positioned on the piazza level of the building, the first phase of Sandton Gate is nearing completion.
First ground was broken in June 2018 and six phases of development have been laid out on the cards for Sandton Gate. Phase one has been set to conclude at the end of 2019, with the first commercial tenants taking occupancy in November of this year. The developers are aiming to finish off Sandton Gate’s residential section before the end of 2020.
Sandton Gate: Phase One
As mentioned before, there is 15,500 square metres of commercial space, 13,000 square metres of premium-grade office space and a 2,500 square metre Planet Fitness positioned on the piazza level of the building. Confirmed tenants, who include Mimecast, will call Sandton Gate home as of 1 November 2019, the developers said.
“Due to the high demand following the launch of phase one, we aim to break ground for phase two in 2020,” the developers said. “We’ve redesigned phase two to include more retail offerings that will include a grocery store and pharmacy as anchor tenants, as well as a hotel and a holistic medical offering.”
Other amenities will include restaurants, coffee shops, salons and other convenience stores. The residential component of the precinct – which will comprise 137 units of two and three bedroom penthouses – has launched and infrastructural work and the bulk earthworks have started.
With the completion of residential first phase envisaged for Q4 2020, the developers are aiming to hit their pre-sale target by August this year which means construction of top structure will commence Q4 2019.
