Centurion Commercial Property

Centurion is ideally located between Pretoria and Midrand (Johannesburg) with its heart at the intersection of the N1 and N14 highways.

Centurion offers a range of commercial properties: industrial, retail, offices and mixed commercial properties.

 

 

The R21, a National Road built in the 1970’s and the only other freeway (apart from N1) that links Pretoria and Johannesburg, also passes through Centurion. The Gautrain station has made accessibility extremely convenient for commuters living in the area but working in either Pretoria or Johannesburg. It has also been a major draw card for businesses looking for good value for money properties out of the main city centres. Centurion has come a long way from being a sleepy southern suburb of Pretoria, with smallholdings and large open spaces. Many businesses have relocated here, and property development is boosting the ever expanding city limits.

Today Centurion features modern shopping malls (Centurion Mall, Mall@Reeds), several entertainment spots, a theatre, golf courses and a driving range. It is also renowned for its large man-made lake, which is overlooked by restaurants and office blocks. Several hotels including Irene Country Lodge as well as a plethora of smaller guest houses flourish in the Centurion area. The UNITAS hospital in the area is the largest private hospital on the African continent (including a helipad) and is part of the Netcare group. Centurion has a variety of educational facilities from Nursery schools, Pre-primary, Primary and High Schools as well as a range of colleges. Technology companies like Aerosud, Accenture, Denel Dynamics, Siemens, SAAB Grintek Technologies, Telkom and others are located in Centurion.

Comprising of approximately 365 000m² of GLA (Gross Lettable Area), Centurion offers promising potential in the office, industrial and retail nodes.

Centurion’s Commercial Office Node incorporates numerous suburbs including, Centurion CBD, Centurion Lake, Verwoerdburgstad, Die Hoewes, Lyttelton, Irene, Eldoraigne, Clubview, Zwartkop, Weirda Park and Rooihuiskraal; all offering a wide variety of offices to lease and purchase, and varying in grade from premium or P (modern and stylish) to C (older finishes, styles, and services). Gross rentable areas within the Centurion Commercial Office Node range from 80m² to 12 000m², and prices vary according to location, age, visual attractiveness, grading and quality. Offices for sale within Centurion range from small suite pockets to entire office parks varying between 90m² to 6 000m². Asking prices for office space vary from location, to grade and quality. Some of the most notable commercial developments include the Highveld Technopark, Route 21 Corporate Park, Eco Park, Lakefield Office Park and Southdowns Office Park.

According to Org Geldenhuys, Managing director of Abacus Divisions, the industrial property market is leading the slow comeback in the entire commercial property market. He further adds that in the greater Irene and Centurion areas, industrial space is in high demand, “We just cannot get enough space for industrial-focused tenants”. Centurion’s fantastic location and access to main freeways makes it a logistical business’s dream.
