Revival of the CBD’s East City Precinct
Thursday, 4 May 2017 – Cape Town, South Africa
The East City Precinct of Cape Town’s CBD has for many years shown potential as one of the city’s up and coming areas. The Harrington (formerly Harrington House), a new retail and commercial development, is about to become another key symbol of this revival as the East City awakens.
Situated in the heart of the tech and design district of the CBD, The Harrington offers tenants the opportunity to work in one of the Mother City’s most vibrant areas, positioned within walking distance of some of the trendiest restaurants, bars & shops, including the popular Wembley Square.
It’s no surprise that Blend Property Group, the developers of The Harrington, have seen huge potential in this area. Established eateries like Truth, New York Bagels, Food Lovers Market, Charly’s Bakery, Haas and Dias Tavern have proven their worth, and retail has also recently begun to flourish.
New venues have recently opened their doors – Harringtons Cocktail Lounge and SurfaRosa, with more to come in the future JL Papa, Mother City Hardware, bespoke coffee shops and exciting night clubs all gearing up to make their mark. There is an obvious buzz in the area and the demand for residential, retail and commercial property is growing.
The location is ideal for commuters with MyCiti bus routes running throughout the precinct, the Cape Town train station only a few blocks away, and direct access to De Waal Drive.
The Harrington will offer a stylish commercial and retail connection to everything that is happening in the East City. With a total GLA of 11000m2 including 5-storeys of office space, exciting retail opportunities, a spacious roof deck, and secure undercover parking, The Harrington covers most of the city block with its main commercial entrance off Harrington Street and street-level retail fronting onto Harrington, Buitenkant and Barrack Streets.
