Burgundy Estate
Now you can buy time.

Site plan



Growing up in a safe environment, playing in parks, walking to school – these are not just fond memories of a leisurely past.

For a select few, it’s now within reach – at the new Burgundy Estate, a secure, self-contained village with traffic-beating amenities offering our residents:

  • round-the-corner shopping,
  • round-the-clock security,
  • safe exercise spaces,
  • sports facilities and schools, and
  • proposed on-site medical services.
Designed to free up time for family, home-making - or just to play.

About

Burgundy Estate is built on one of the last remaining and immensely valuable pockets of land bordering the Tygerberg, Blaauwberg and Parow urban edges. The long-anticipated rezoning of this historic land has brought an extraordinary investment opportunity for those seeking strong capital appreciation in a short time.

Burgundy Estate abuts the vineyards of the sought-after Durbanville wine area and the historic De Grendel wine farm, which add to the desirability of the estate.

The estate’s strict urban and landscaping design guidelines serves as control to create an aesthetically pleasing and high-value environment. Homes will be built in a contemporary style to ensure homogeneity, and will conform to the high standards of the Burgundy Master Homeowners Association.

Particular attention has been given to the landscaping of the area. Only indigenous plants are used, nurtured by a grey water reticulation system with enough capacity to sustain the entire development.

The lifestyle for you

Take full advantage of the outdoors, right on your doorstep. Burgundy Estate’s many open spaces encourage an outdoor lifestyle, create breathing space between homes and naturally soften the area.

Pocket parks and linear green corridors dotted throughout the development create safe playing areas, within view of your home, for the exclusive use of residents and their families. All open areas are maintained by the estate.

At Burgundy Estate, a healthier, stress-relieving lifestyle is within easy reach. Exercise in a safe environment through our “green street” system, incorporating a pedestrian walkway for joggers and adjacent cycle track meandering through the development.





The convenience for you

Burgundy Estate’s amenities are all within easy reach of all homes on the estate, and greatly enhance the sense of home and convenience, resulting in a more leisurely pace and more time spent at home.

Burgundy Estate will have its own private primary and high schools, a crèche run by the on-site church, a 12 000m2 shopping centre, restaurants, and a medical centre housing health care practitioners.

Sports lovers don’t have to leave Burgundy Estate to improve their skills or levels of fitness. Three club houses will accommodate a variety of organised sports, while a nine-hole putting and chipping course and a mountain bike track, allowing for quick, convenient access to practice sessions for the time-strapped.




Secure for sure

While most South African residential developments focus on gated, access-controlled areas, Advanced urban design offered a solution: two access roads into the estate prompted more effective pro-active measures.

Natural surveillance will be heightened since residents are likely to spend more time at home due to the nearby amenities and their use of public areas between homes. See-through palisade fencing, thoughtful landscaping and limited shadow areas, supported by good lighting, will further ensure fewer security vulnerabilities.

However the estate is not devoid of physical security: entrance cameras will monitor every movement, while electric fencing and 24-hour patrols act as active crime deterrents.

Designated armed response teams and guards at each entrance are supplied free of charge by the security company that has been awarded a mandate to secure the Estate. This is to ensure optimum efficiency of security. These armed response teams are permanently on site. Residents may privately contract to this security company for home alarm monitoring.

Your home

The 185-hectare Burgundy Estate offers a diverse mixture of more than 5800 high and medium-density development opportunities, to be built over 5 phases. Bulk service levies will be included in the purchase price of stands, and levies will be low, thanks to economies of scale.

The site has been subdivided in 94 mixed sites, including several commercial opportunities for both large and small retailers. These consist of:

* single residential sites of an average size of 500m2,
* group housing sites and
* general residential sites.

Earmarked for Phase A & B:

* 115 plots single residential
* 6 group housing sites (321 units)
* 32 general residential sites (2,530 units)
* Crèche and church
* Commercial centre with proposed medical rooms
* Shopping centre (12,500 GLA)
* School site with playing fields

Infrastructural benefits to all

Although Burgundy Estate is conveniently close to all major surrounding commercial and industrial areas, its central location and quick access to the N7 and N1 will not add to traffic congestion. Quite the contrary - forward planning has ensured that Burgundy will actually alleviate congestion in the area.

Seven exits will ease the flow in and out of the development itself, while an extension of the M12 motorway will connect the development directly to Bosmansdam Road via a new bridge over Plattekloof Road.

Dispersion of traffic is not the only benefit to residents and home-owners of surrounding areas. Local sewerage and bulk services are extensively upgraded to cope with the additional load, while higher capacity storm water drainage and increased water pressure is in the offing too.

Actually, I'm surprised we missed this one! Or maybe Lydon and I are blind, or Cape Town is just so a-buzz, stuff in the northern suburbs is going unnoticed. :) This estate is well underway and the M12 and M8 (Giel Basson Dr and Bosmansdam Rd) extensions are already complete passed the M14 (Plattekloof Rd). The houses are already being built. The development is huge, effectively create a new large suburb from scratch the size of Century City in area.

Guess CT is just so nuts right now, a new R2billion or so suburb with low-density housing and mixed-use nodes just doesn't feature on our radar anymore! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hehe I actually thought about posting it the other day, then decided against it for some reason I now cannot remember. Well now it's here!

It's just such a pity they can't bulldoze that "nature reserve" across the road. The stupid pipelines underneath mean that they can't build anything even if they wanted to. It really is an eyesore. Plus, those random squatters shacking up there trying to claim the land isn't a good thing either.

Work is progressing well. I'll see if I can take a few photos. They've finished bulldozing the smaller site on the opposite side of Tygerberg Valley Road and quite a few complexes seem to be nearing completion. They're doing touchups to the wall surrounding the estate as well as installing the security cameras etc. in the guard houses.

The power lines don't enter the residential part of the estate. The photos you're looking at is the construction of the bridge and road across from the estate.

With regards to the oil refinery...well suburbs have surrounded it for years and years. Unfortunately as the city expands we will come across a few things we don't exactly want in our back yards, but they were there first.

Think you mean Panorama Hospital? Hehe

Anyway, it's developments such as these that will make the area much better. I hated it too because up until the hospital the area in general just appeared very delapitated. The area around the hospital seems to be developing quite well, as as the construction of the gym, shopping centres etc, which will hopefully spread right down to Bothasig.

Haha I know what you mean, but I think that's because it's pretty much empty at this point in time. Once it starts filling up some more life and soul will arrive.

#Burgundy Estate - Mixed Use - Cape Town | Under Construction

Seems the other thread has disappeared :)

http://www.burgundyestate.co.za/

Burgundy Estate is situated below Tygerberg Hill on the Bothasig-side. What used to be unused farm land has now been turned into a mixed-use estate including residential homes and apartments, a shopping centre, school, clinic, various sports fields, a mountain bike track and more.

Below are photo updates from February this year. The place is coming along very fast with the shopping centre on track for completion in October by the looks of it.

I'll try get some newer photos.

Ruby Estate is an integral part of Burgundy Estate, a development which offers every aspect of a complete life, from retail shops to a 9-hole golf course. An important part of modern living is, of course, access to a range of opportunities and amenities all over the greater Cape Town area. Here, too, Ruby Estate is a special opportunity.
Situated on the western side of Tygerberg Hill with prime views over the Table Bay basin, Ruby Estate is located close to several major arterial routes. Tygerberg Valley road makes travel to Durbanville an easy affair, while Giel Basson Drive provides a convenient route to the Northern Suburbs. Add proximity to the N7, and hence the N1 leading to Paarl and the City Bowl – and Ruby Estate presents one of the most enviable locations available.
