“G5 Properties is proud of this superb new north-facing residential building which we are developing in partnership with Sylt Developments and the multidisciplinary construction group Liviero,” adds Silwamba. “Every aspect has been considered in the design of the building, which will be a signature residential development for our group within Gauteng.”

“We were fortunate to have been able to find a unique 4 000sqm site in Hyde Park situated within a private cul-de-sac in order to develop this one-of-a-kind residential complex,” adds Sylt executive Louis Barnard. “This will result in the residential development enjoying both good access and privacy.”

“One97 will be an upmarket residential development, with state-of-the-art single access security and is within easy walking distance of Hyde Park Shopping Centre and a few minutes drive from SA’s financial capital of Sandton. The designers looked to trends emerging in international urban centres such as New York and London in order to achieve the classic lines yet timeless, cosmopolitan feel of One97.”

Liviero executive Paul Le Sueur says that the development and the apartments themselves have been purpose designed to offer residents a sophisticated urban-chic lifestyle.  

The building will incorporate a lobby and lounge as well as a number of other attractive features such as central atrium and a rooftop meditation garden, which the residents can relax in, as well as an inviting swimming pool. Le Sueur points out that additional optional storage facilities will also be available for residents in the basement area.

“The apartments will have sliding screen doors leading onto their ample balconies, creating a seamless flow between the interior and exterior. The walls of the units will be thick, ensuring outstanding privacy in terms of soundproofing, while the sixth-floor penthouses will have their own garden terraces. The kitchen equipment and fittings will all be of the highest quality including custom-fit Smeg appliances and Grohe brass taps.”

“We have also incorporated a number of green features such as low energy LED designer lighting and a central gas-heated water system that will save a considerable amount of electricity. The units will, in addition, be equipped with energy efficient gas hobs. The development will be north-facing, thereby further reducing heating requirements,” Le Sueur explains.
