Abland, one of South Africa’s leading property developers for over 30 years, together with its partners on the Irene Link development, Giflo and SOM will be breaking ground on the second phase of the commercial development at the Irene Link precinct in Pretoria, in October 2019. This 8,500m² commercial building will be ready for occupation in October 2020.

The commercial component of the 75,000m² precinct, which already includes the Barloworld Logistics Head Office, will range from flexi suites which are single 20m² semi serviced offices to 50,000m² campus style offices, depending on tenant requirements. Irene Link will include a 12,000m² Convenience shopping Centre which is set for development in Q4 2019 and open to the public towards the end of 2020.

“Irene Link will offer a broad spectrum of mixed-use elements such as office space, medical services, restaurants, a national grocer, a preschool, a hotel, a business centre with conference facilities, beauty and health facilities, and big green areas in one flowing organic precinct. The inclusion of an education facility into the development will ensure that Irene Link becomes a destination for the public,” says Jurgens Prinsloo, Managing Director at Abland.

“Our aim is to make Irene Link one of the first smart precinct or smart city in Gauteng. At this infrastructure phase, the connectivity of the precinct is planned to link all the functions of the precinct into a smart city with interconnected buildings and security, smart taxi drop-offs and a public Wi-Fi area. We are also designing a green star precinct from the ground up and each building on its own is green star rated. This will include backup water and power, with renewable solar energy,” he adds.

Conveniently located on Alexander Road just off the Botha Avenue interchange, the R2billion mixed-use precinct is well-located with great exposure to the N1 highway and is easily accessible. There are plans for a future Gautrain station and bus stations in the vicinity which will bring even more attention to the node.

  • An interconnected development with easy accessibility and a premium lifestyle feel
