Swisatec: South Africa’s new promise and Africa’s financial gateway
The Dollar House is in the heart of Helderberg area, positioned as a highly prestigious business location and home to many international financial institutions, it’s a place of steel and glass, of suits and speed and the habit of planning for the future rather than rambling on about the past.
Designed by renowned architectural firm Swisatec, The Dollar House will offer 40 000 square metres of prime office space, 600 metres long, designed to accommodate thousands of people daily, a true world class building and an iconic landmark. The financial hub will keep true to the Blue Rock Village environmental objective and cost saving systems such as running the building on solar generated power, daylight-controlled lighting systems, water-efficient fittings, rain-water harvesting system, lifts will be installed with VVVF sleep mode for energy saving, full insulation and double glazed windows.
The Dollar House will house financial institutions such as banks, law firms, financial consultants, financial advisors, and wealth management firms. With an expected wealth of financial institutions and head offices, the Dollar House will soon be the next financial hub of Cape Town and the driver of South Africa’s economy.
A business hub doesn’t become a business hub without properly accommodating the Businessman-Blue Rock Village shines in this respect. A five-star Blue Rock Hotel and 80 executive apartments above The Dollar House dominate the landscape offering world-class amenities catering to business travellers. Blue Rock Village further offers the esteemed conferencing centre with a capacity to host over 500 executives. Linked to the conferencing centre is a 10 000 square metre Lifestyle exhibition street designed to host conferences, exhibitions, interactive events such product launch, concerts or music festivals.
Next to The Dollar House is the Santa Luzia Lifestyle centre, a vibrant hub of Cape life where sophistication and chic collide. Its universal appeal makes it one of Cape Town’s foremost attraction. The lifestyle centre adds more value to The Dollar House as it offers an array of café’s, high-end restaurants, boutique shops, creative art studios i.e. pottery and painting, fresh produce markets, bakery shops, doctors centre, clinic, and professional office space for small to medium business.
Embracing our car free living concept, all vehicles will be parked underground. To counter the frenzied Cape Town traffic, Swisatec is set to discuss with the City of Cape Town and PRASA on the expansion of PRASA business train, a construction of a new train station just opposite the village and the expansion of the MyCiti bus service in order to provide business travellers, tourist and locals with reliable public transport service that makes doing business at The Dollar House a breeze. Swisatec also envisions a helicopter shuttle from Blue Rock Village to the Cape Town International airport.
What makes The Dollar House more special is the ideal location, surrounded by award winning wine farms, sandy beaches of Gordons Bay, Strand and False Bay with more than 20 famous golf ranges in close proximity to the village.
The Dollar House is indeed South Africa’s new promise and Africa’s financial gate way. Construction is envisioned to begin in 2017. Blue Rock Village phase one: Giovanni Luxury Apartments will be officially on sale in August.
