In the heart of Century City, just a bridge from Canal Walk Shopping Centre and ten minutes’ drive from the centre of Cape Town, is Manhattan, a sophisticated, cosmopolitan, New York-style high-rise.
Set over basement parking and ground-level conference facilities with a convenient ‘neighbourhood’ restaurant, Manhattan consists of 81 studio, one and two bedroom apartments, many with balconies or terraces, offering spectacular views of the Grand Canal, Table Mountain or the Atlantic Ocean. Each apartment comes with a secure undercover parking bay.
Developed by the Rabie Property Group at a cost of around R150m, Manhattan is strategically located between the award-winning Island Club and KnightsBridge developments on Century City’s Grand Canal.
The modern, cutting-edge design of the building embraces clean lines, contours and bold, simple structural elements to add variation and interest. The façade features a clever combination of facebrick, plastering and steel.
As for the whole of Century City, security is of prime importance and is reinforced by a single, iconic entrance. With a doorman in 24-hour attendance, the recessed entrance into the foyer and lift lobby also form a focal point of the Manhattan and residents are able to access the restaurant directly from the entrance foyer.
