From 2010, when Nedbank completed its headquarters on the corner of Rivonia Road and Maude Street to become the country’s first Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) Green Star-certified building, Sandton Central has remained on the cutting edge of green building practices on the African continent.

One of the key ways for Africa to attract significant external investment is to improve levels of liquidity across the continent. 

Discovery Place, the new high-performance global headquarters developed for Discovery in a joint venture of two of South Africa’s leading property companies, Growthpoint Properties and Zenprop Property Holdings, is the overall winner of the prestigious South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards 2019.

JSE listed Balwin Properties, a developer that cares about environmentally responsible building practices and the delivery of high-quality apartments to its valued clients, today announced a major achievement in its ongoing drive to fight climate change through the mainstreaming of green lifestyle developments.

The spotlight will be on Africa and its urban development this week as more than 250 executives and professionals in the built environment sector are set to attend the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Summit Africa event in Sandton Central, Johannesburg.

The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) has awarded a 4-star Green Star Sustainable Precincts certification – the first in Africa – to a project that will be built by historic Cape Town development company, Garden Cities NPC (RF), as a further phase of its flagship Cape West Coast suburb, Sunningdale.

Green Star Certified office buildings outperform similar uncertified buildings by 3.8%.

Cape Town, South Africa, 1 August 2018 – Women’s Property Network (WPN) hosted the Western Cape region for the fourth annual South African Women in Property Awards (SAWIPA), in conjunction with Airports Company South Africa (ACSA).

Africa’s burgeoning big cities will play an increasingly central role in the continent’s growth and development, driven largely by Africa’s rapid urbanisation.

Industrial property in the East of Gauteng produced a strong showing in 2017, with good leasing and development activity recorded in Growthpoint Properties’ industrial portfolio.
