ENTREPREURING, DEVELOPING & INVESTING
We are Real Estate Entrepreneurs. We build capital through risk taking and initiative while caring for the environment. We love Real Estate for its ability to create value and wealth through cash flow, leverage, capital appreciation, depreciation and tax benefits.
We dream, envision, control and orchestrate a highly creative process to deliver material values to our shareholders and the communities that we serve by means of improving, repositioning of selected existing properties or taking on new developments
Because of their potential to yield distinctive communities, to maximize architectural expressions, to catalyze shift to urban renewal, we have a marked preference for mixed-use developments (the use of a building/set of buildings/neighborhood for more than one purpose) in inner-city or high density suburban environments
One such project is the development of a strip along Main Road in the Mowbray Cape Town CBD. In 2001, we boldly undertook a decade-long re-development project to reposition the strip into a vibrant mix of retail and residential units that preserved the suburb’s remarkable architectural identity, yet offered a modern infrastructure to serve varied small businesses and a diverse student community. This highly successful venture led the way to the re-energizing renewal of the area.

FIVE HALLMARKS OF THE WONDER VIEWS MEWS (WVM)
Location and Architectural Character: The WVM complex strikes a balance between the historic nature of Mowbray and the modern contemporary demands. It is sited in a central area with historic charm, high accessibility, and great variety of amenities. Mowbray forms a major node within Cape Town, particularly in terms of its use as a transport interchange, and thus a wide range of transport networks (train, bus, taxi) are available. The proximity to the University of Cape Town (UCT), the Baxter Theatre and other tertiary educational institutions in the Observatory-Mowbray-Rondebosch area and easy access to the city centre makes it a perfect home for young professionals and students alike. The immediate location of several excellent schools and the Red Cross Children Hospital makes the WMV a desired place to stay.
Addressing Tenant’s Needs: Spaces are designed to respond to the purpose of structure and tenant's needs. There is ample and secure parking, flexibility of space and excellent spatial configuration. Flats are adaptable to tenant’s needs with minimum effort. Centrality of entrance and access to landscapes from each unit add value to the tenant, allows for better surveillance of the street and thus better security. Long and short leases are possible to qualified prospective tenants.
Parking: Adequate and secure parking is available within the WVM complex both in the form of lock-up garages or open parking bays.
Landscaping and views: The Wonder Views Mews is located along the fertile Liesbeeck River valley. Landscaping of the sites around the buildings offers an identity to tenants as well as space for relaxation. There are stunning views of Table Mountain (Devil Peak, Rhodes Memorial), the Liesbeeck River Valley, Milnerton and Durbanville from many of the units.
Security is taken very seriously at the WVM. The premises are fenced and secure, there’s provision of controlled access and surveillance.
