Ulana van Biljon, COO of Emira, reports that converting the office building in Rosebank, previously occupied by Sasol, has progressed seamlessly. The addition of two new floors incorporates a special light-weight solution.
There is a mix of bachelor, one- and two bedroom apartments, which range in size from roughly 30sqm to 60sqm, with blackout blinds on all windows.
The Bolton has its own pool and braai area, an 18-seater cinema, free fibre WiFi, boardroom,
laundry facility, secure basement parking and biometric access control.
It also conveniently plugs its residents into the extensive social, retail and transport networks
evident in Rosebank’s authentic modern live-work-play urban environment. It is down the road
from the landmark Rosebank Mall, which links to several other retail and hotel properties. It is
also a short stroll from the Rosebank Gautrain.
Therefore, apartments at The Bolton are right on the doorstep of vibrant shopping, banking, gyms, restaurants, entertainment, hospitality , medical and transport facilities, and more.
The Bolton is Emira’s first investment in the residential sector, so the company is partnering with
experienced experts in the residential development space, Feenstra Group and HB Realty.
Ulana concludes, “This residential conversion serves to repurpose and reinvigorate the former office buildings and the project furthers our strategy to rebalance the portfolio out of the office sector.
We are confident that this is a much better use of the assets, and the positive uptake of apartments and good market response to The Bolton confirms this.”
