Construction begins on R6bn Castle Gate precinct in Pretori

Development of the first phase of the multi-billion-rand Castle Gate mixed-use precinct in Pretoria is under way. Castle Gate will comprise 100,000m2 of office space, 40,000m2 of specialist medical facilities, and a hotel as well as 1,100 residential units, and a 23,000m2 convenience retail centre.

?

Castle Gate is being co-developed by Atterbury Property Fund (APF) and The Carl Erasmus Trust. APF is co-owned by property developer and investor Atterbury, its management and founders, as well as Talis Investment Partners. Upon completion, the Castle Gate project is expected to represent a total investment of R6bn and 20,000 permanent jobs will have been created as a result of its development.

Combining these metal panels with other products will come easily to any designer.   Each panel is created from the finest raw materials and assembled with scrupulous attention to detail.

At the core of Unipanel is its commitment to a quality product Unipanel and once again we guarantee these metal panels for a period of ten years from the date of purchase. The Unipanel SA guarantee excludes normal wear-and-tear or damage due to misuse.  Your official authentication certificate will be handed at the showroom upon purchasing your products.

The Castle Gate Lifestyle Centre will open in September 2020 and will include retail, medical consulting rooms, offices and a gym. It is designed with a farmhouse feel that is rustic yet industrial and includes a focus on outdoor green areas. In harmony with the environment, eco-friendly building designs are being put forward wherever possible and most, if not all, of the buildings in the precinct are expected to include solar energy generation.

Castle Gate is adjacent to the N1 and will be accessible from Solomon Mahlangu Drive, which is already in the process of being widened and upgraded as part of the development. The second phase of the Castle Gate project road upgrades includes building a new highway bridge across the N1, which will make it possible to introduce double lanes in both directions on Solomon Mahlangu Drive, between Castle Gate and Hoërskool Waterkloof.

The entire precinct is expected to be developed over the next decade and the second phase of Castle Gate is planned to begin in mid-2020.

What have been some of your favorite projects?

Nothing can beat the opportunity of servicing young kids.  More so, kids that know what they want and have wonderful ideas. We recently worked on a house located in Rietvlei view Country Estate were the kids were totally involved in shaping up their room. We presented several options and the kids chose what they saw fit for their room, they did not compromise.  We thoroughly enjoyed an opportunity to work with them towards completion of some of the most beautiful, minimal and functional bedrooms.

How did you get started in the industry?

I believe that I was born with great interior taste. After furnishing my first house my friends and family started requesting advise.  It got to the point when they started requesting me to accompany them to the shops.  I was an Engineer at the time so I used my salary to purchase a kitchen and interior design software.  I gave myself time to learn until I showed one of my sisters the design.  Immediately she requested me to design her house.  She loved the designs so much that she tasked us to execute. Our first execution was beautiful and the rest is History.

What have been some of your most challenging projects?

Limpopo project was super challenging.   We did interior design and general construction (i.e. paving, tiling, electrical works, plumbing and paving).  The seven-bedroom house was not properly built and all the issues required to be addressed before the Architectural Interior design work could commence.  The worst part was that we only had a month to complete the work. We managed to complete the project on time and produced the most beautiful and quality product.

What have been some of your favorite projects?

I am inspired by Simple and luxurious Interior Design that do not compromise the quality and functionality.  

What are some tips to consider when selecting wood panels for the home?

  1. Be 100% sure of the style and look to be achieved, whether one wants to achieve a contemporary look, a modern look and etc. will basically inform the type of wood and textures to go for.
  2. The quality and the guarantee of the wood is very important because it defines the durability of the wood. However, the most critical is the edging quality, whether the edging glue is water resistant is significant in the choice of the wood and ultimately the supplier.
  3. Proper integration of the wood and other elements which are planned/ are currently used within the home is key. This is why it is critical to have a 3D design that shows how the room elements and the wood can harmonize. We often refer to this as the power of 3D design, it helps with the choice of wood and texture.
