The Project: Steyn City Development

Project Description

The project consists of a 125,000 sq. mt. (1,345,488 sq. ft.) Basement podium of two stores that host parking spaces and retail premises. Above the platform, 130,000 sq. mt. (1,399,308 sq. ft.) of apartments on 739 units are located in diverse sorts of 4 story blocks, creating an "Italian villa" landscape. The units vary in size from 80 sq. mt. (861 sq. ft.) to 600 sq. mt. (6458 sq. ft.) on 7 typologies regarding the number of bedrooms and duplex or simplex spaces. Even though the units types are repeated, each building reveals a singular combination of units and the facades have been designed to break the pattern, which makes each building unique. The Steyn City project will host 5,000 sq. mt. (53,819 sq. ft.) of retail spaces on the podium and some residential blocks on the ground floor. It is phased in 23 portions and each portion will be individually documented on different timeframes. All foundations have been already built, the basement and podium structure for portions 1, 2, 6 and 7 are currently under construction and are due to be finished by the end of 2015.
