A unique designer development that promises to be “exciting by day and dazzling by night” has been launched in Johannesburg’s exclusive Illovo-Hyde Park area for buyers with discerning taste and a yen for something different.

Le Cirque boasts a “high point” location with uninterrupted views and a lock-up-and-go lifestyle, as well as semi-private lifts to each apartment, and lock-up storage facilities.

According to Lew Geffen, chairman of Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty, Le Cirque apartments, which offer “a most prestigious address, extraordinary open-terrace lifestyle and competitive pricing value”, are on the market for potential owners to buy off-plan, with the development already more than 60 percent sold out.

Geffen says the view of the city lights at night-time will entice many potential buyers to live in this contemporary building.

Illovo is a prestigious suburb close to Sandton that borders Hyde Park. Sandhurst and Craighall Park. It has schools, shopping and sporting facilities on its doorstep - everything a resident could possibly want, he says.

Speaking of the attraction of owning property in the area, he says Illovo rentals are much sought after and many sectional titles in the area are bought as investment properties. They’re also attractive to those who live outside of Johannesburg, but conduct a lot of business in the area and need a convenient city pad.

“Illovo property offers a centrally located suburb bordering on Atholl and Inanda. suburbs that match Illovo in convenience of location, beauty and their general standard of real estate.”

The two bedroom units measure 175 to 185 square metres and include large 45 square metre terraces. They have spacious open plan kitchens, dining and living areas which blend into the super-sized terraces. Apartments are priced from R4.3 million.

As for the development itself, Geffen says the moment you step into the lobby of Le Cirque you’ll be impressed by its sophisticated design. Among the property’s highlights is easy access to the Sandton or Rosebank Gautrain stations, as well as the main highway systems.

“Illovo's close proximity to the M1, as well as to the Sandton and Rosebank CBDs, make it an ideal location for business people,” says Geffen.

The association facilitates a controlled security that is networked across the suburb and can be accessed throughout. There are numerous security guards who regularly patrol the suburb and CCTV cameras that are constantly monitored by armed response services. Le Cirque will also have its own on-site security.
