Area Description

This trendy, vibrant suburb is well-known across Cape Town as being a creative hub filled with wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and renowned hotels. Home to many design studios, creative spaces and modelling agencies, Gardens is the hub of Cape Town’s ‘artsy’ scene. Towering above the city bowl, the area is home to amazing, secure parks such as the spectacular Company Gardens and dog-friendly De Waal Park. The MiCiti bus service operates frequently throughout the area and allows for the suburb to be well connected to the rest of Cape Town. Commercial real estate is plentiful throughout the area and is mostly occupied by companies that are immersed in the creative economy of South Africa.

Rental Rates

The entire area is surprisingly well-priced given its stellar location right above the City Centre and compared to its well-situated counterparts across the country. One can obtain an enormous A-grade office space with just above 1000sqm of GLA for as low as 190 thousand rand per month which, compared to similarly well-located areas across Cape Town, is relatively cheap. Prices can drop to as low as almost 12 thousand rand per month for an 84 sqm office space in an A-grade building on the famous Kloof Street. These sorts of prices are hard to beat in locations this close to Cape Town’s commercial hub and makes Gardens one of the Western Cape’s most loved business nodes.

Identified Offerings

Situated on arguably the most vibrant, renowned street in Cape Town, Longkloof Studios is a commercial office space that offers well-maintained spaces in a very convenient location. Opposite a MiCiti Bus stop and stone throw away from Cape Town’s most popular and trendy hotspots, commercial property in this building is an amazing offering. This office building allows for tenants to operate their business out of one of the cities most desired locations and continuously adored by so many.

Shopping Centres

Gardens Shopping Centre is the City Bowl’s most popular shopping oasis. Quite fittingly, this one-stop source of life’s little luxuries and daily necessities, is just a stone’s throw from Cape Town’s original 17th Century provisioning hub, the Company Gardens. It is also one of the city’s most established shopping centres and as quintessentially Cape Town as Table Mountain. It’s the rendezvous of a cosmopolitan café society and a quiet, personable shopping alternative to those sprawling malls elsewhere in Cape Town.
