Affordable housing in Sandton

The Sandton towers project is an affordable high-rise housing development, located in the financial hub of Sandton CBD. The site is well connected and accessible via multiple forms of transport due to its central location, with the Gautrain station within a 5-minute walking distance. The proposed development consists of two towers with a total of 2500 sectional title residential units, a parkade and a small retail component. The residential towers will be one of the tallest buildings in the area and will be prominent on the Sandton skyline.

The development comprises studio apartments that form the majority of the typology, with two-bedroom penthouses on the rooftop that have access to private landscaped terraces as outdoor living areas with braai facilities. The studio apartment’s internal spaces have been designed to ensure maximum efficiency to offer a high quality, functional and comfortable indoor space. Facilities and amenities form an important role in the development to support the well-being and health of residents, through the provision of communal dining areas, meeting rooms, gym, and rooftop recreational park with play courts to foster a sense of community.
