Paardevlei Square - Residential estate
Paardevlei Square is located in the exclusive Paardevlei Precinct, Somerset West within greater Cape Town. This development lies within the Historic core of Paardevlei, that boasts some historically significant Herbert Baker and Francis Massey buildings dating back to the late 1890s.
The site is bordered by the vlei itself, and has spectacular north facing views of the Hottentots Holland mountains, overlooking the vlei. A network of pedestrian pathways allow all occupants free access to the vlei. The site also has at its core a large landscaped square that all occupants can enjoy. The buildings have been arranged around this landscaped square, and also along the edge of the vlei, creating individual blocks with a village type feel.
The architecture is contemporary, but also responds to the important heritage indicators of the Paardevlei Design guidelines. The building heights have been limited to 3 storeys so as not to overscale the historic buildings adjacent.
Paardevlei Square is ideally situated for:
