Swisatec, an architectural and project management firm based in South Africa, is set to build the first multi-billion Green Village in Cape Town. The Blue Rock Village will be the first Green Village not only in South Africa but in Africa.
The multi-billion Green Village is an upgrade of the well-known Blue Rock Resort, which boasts a magnificent view of the Blue Rock Lake, the only lake in Cape Town with crystal clear waters, with a depth of 60 metres and a water temperature of 27⁰C, making it ideal for water skiing, scuba diving and other tourist and leisure attractions.
The Village is situated in the heart of award winning wine farms of Somerset West, a stone’s throw away from Sir Lowry’s Pass, approximately three-six kilometres away from the Gordon’s Bay and Strand beaches. The Village is accessible through N2 highway, Cape Town International Airport is only 15 minutes away by car and Cape Town CBD a mere 30 minutes.
Plans for the mixed-use Blue Rock Village include a multi-functional lifestyle centre within the development, array of medical centres, boutiques, schools and colleges, nurseries, restaurants and cafes. Linked to the centre is the hotel, spa and conference centre, where one can be pampered in various therapeutic centres, or take a leisurely dip in the swimming pool.
Mr Lukas Reichmuth, Founder and Director of Blue Rock Village said: “The project will be market-driven, focusing on both the international market and the South African market, our apartments are designed to fit different types of individual needs. The Village comprises 1,000 luxury residential apartments built on 40 hectares of land.
“As the first pioneers of Car Free Living, our vision of Blue Rock Village is to enjoy the magnificent beauty and natural surroundings where you can truly experience the great outdoors. All parking is underground to maximize the green living and visual pleasures of nature which is connected seamlessly. It’s all about green spaces and design, combined with luxury apartment living. For convenience, we have planned a helipad for business people to commute easily between the airport and Cape Town and a train and bus station will be developed to encourage the residents to use public transport rather than private transport. The Blue Rock Village will set a precedent for future development in South Africa.”
The Blue Rock Village offers investors different apartments with five layout types in one, two, three or four bedroom options. All apartments are meticulously designed with quality detail throughout and all material that is used in the creation of the Blue Rock Village is environmentally-friendly, and comes with a 10-year guarantee. Keeping true the environmentally friendly theme, Blue Rock Village is using A++rated energy efficient appliances, LED lighting, along with a water management system from shower to sprinklers and a maximum of self-generated solar power.
The Blue Rock Village is built with technology in mind. The Village offers a fast and reliable connection with a fibre optic system that feeds each residence and this includes Wi-Fi which will be available throughout the Village. The residence will be equipped with intercoms and free telephonic communication between the estate residence and security.
“With all this, it is no surprise that we expect Blue Rock Village to become an exclusive prime address in the Western Cape. A place with bespoke living experience for the discerning investors and a home to those who wish a lifestyle full of only the best Cape Town area has to offer,” said Mr Reichmuth.
