Gauteng will soon be seeing history take place as its first online residential sales launch is set to take place on 17th November 2018, welcoming The Saxony Sandton. This R2 billion architectural masterpiece will tower over the Sandton skyline, redefining the neighbourhood lifestyle and pioneering residential development sales within Africa’s richest square mile.

Leading South African developer, Saxony Developments has set out to deliver ‘The Saxony’ series of developments in key prominent areas in South Africa.

Current data reveals that, in South Africa, the largest percentage of sectional title properties are sold in Gauteng. This is not surprising as Sandton has seen over 500 sectional title transfers registered between July 2017 and June 2018. The demand for these opportunities is no doubt due to the high-density working population with a high LSM income and the global move towards working closer to the leading business districts.

“We wanted to introduce a distinctive architectural design that exemplifies excellence and refined quality.  Being such a unique offering in the highly sought-after neighbourhoods of Illovo and Hyde Park, it was the obvious choice to launch The Saxony Sandton online to afford interested buyers an opportunity to purchase a unit from anywhere in the world on a dedicated online platform. Rainmaker Marketing pioneered the online residential sales launch in South Africa and learnt from previous launches that this will ultimately make the purchasing process convenient, seamless and easy. Ultimately giving everyone an equal opportunity to purchase one of the prime opportunities available,” explains Rajan Naidoo, CEO of Saxony Developments.

The Saxony Sandton is an extraordinary development that aims to command the Sandton skyline towering across 27-storeys. The architecture differentiates from custom box shapes, and introduces a dynamic, triangular form with the facade being clad in glass, with brass and metallic screens. The premier address, unrivalled standard of living and architectural brilliance enhances the high-energy, on-the-go Sandton way of life. “Our goal was to introduce international, cutting edge architecture with a touch of African flare. The Saxony Sandton is a strikingly tall building and to create interest as you move your way up this superstructure, we have incorporated facilities such as a wellness centre, smart office spaces and a high-rise bar with a whiskey and cigar lounge,” explains Nathan Iyer, award-winning visionary and Director of IYER Urban Design.

The Saxony Sandton presents lavish 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments and penthouses from R3,2 million. “Luxury knows no bounds at The Saxony Sandton; we have imported Italian Berloni kitchens, bedroom cupboards and vanities, and have incorporated advanced smart home technology and superior security features throughout the development, with the highest level of security,” shares Naidoo.

Sandton inspires The Saxony Sandton platinum lifestyle providing exclusive access to dedicated concierge services from car valets, laundry services, restaurant bookings, to room service, and shuttle services to Sandton Gautrain Station, Sandton City and OR Tambo. Other first-rate facilities available to residents include state-of-the-art smart open-plan office spaces and boardrooms, an urban high-rise bar with a cigar and whiskey lounge, a vibrant coffee shop and deli for residents, businesses and visitors, internal landscaped green recreational areas and a revitalising wellness centre tailored with a fully-equipped gym, heated pool, as well as sauna and steam rooms.

“We are providing a unique digital experience, with our Sales Gallery located within the Nelson Mandela Square, offering virtual reality experiences and a chance for individuals to engage with the specially designed interactive module. The Sales Gallery is fitted out as a replica of an apartment in the development, showcasing the actual floor, wall and ceiling treatments, the kitchens and vanities allows buyers a touch, feel and see experience of the product being purchased. Buyers are able to view the development model and engage with the dedicated development consultants. Every element of The Saxony Sandton has been meticulously planned and designed to complement the already high standards that Sandton residents are accustomed to” ends Naidoo.

South African cricketing legend, Hashim Amla, has not only mastered skills on the sports field, but is also using his worldly travel experiences to get involved in property development. Amla, together with Saxony Developments, a leading South African developer based in Durban, have recently partnered to introduce The Saxony Sibaya; an all-encompassing luxury development along the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Separating itself from other successful developments within the remarkable Sibaya Coastal Precinct, this distinguished development has established itself as the first estate to introduce drive-up access to all the individual apartment suites and penthouses.

“Throughout my career I have been exposed to some great investment opportunities, and it is in recent times that I’ve realised that the best investment returns come from off-plan residential developments. I have been observing the significant growth within Sibaya Coastal Precinct, and with its revolutionised lifestyle, it is by far the fastest growing residential node in the country right now. I jumped at the opportunity to invest in this node and to partner with one of South Africa’s leading property developers, Saxony Developments,” says Hashim Amla, South African cricketing legend and proud investor at The Saxony Sibaya.

The Saxony Sibaya introduces 100 luxury apartments, consisting of 2 and 3-bedrooms, as well as exquisite 3 and 4-bedroom penthouses, every unit features its own private outdoor living space. The terraces have been created with spacious living in mind, while the expansive use of glass and stack doors creates open, large areas outdoors, further inviting the beautiful nature surrounding this residence into each home. The large interiors have been designed to fashion superior finishes and fixtures.

“Hashim Amla has extensive knowledge of luxury estate living from across the globe and has insight into what the market is looking for; his partnership has been invaluable. The vision behind The Saxony Sibaya is simple yet sophisticated architecture, sheer splendour and the prominence of the noteworthy location. We wanted this development to awaken the senses and truly provide residents with a home that represented sophistication,” shares Rajan Naidoo, Chief Executive of Saxony Developments.

Furthermore, The Saxony Sibaya offers a fully-equipped boutique gym with a ‘his’ and ‘hers’ steam room and sauna. This luxury residence will feature domestic quarters or storage space, a clubhouse, braai area, 3-level cascading pool and open recreational areas which includes a kid’s play zone.

“To be able to live somewhere that is safe and secure, where you are free to live an active, outdoor lifestyle, and where you literally have access to all the amenities you could possibly need right at your doorstep, really is quite special,” ends Amla.

There is no doubt that The Saxony Sibaya is incomparably crafted. Its design focuses on textured materials, smooth finishes and exceptional detail to create refined character within each home.
