The Palms Centre is a 21 000 m² building that is located two minutes from Cape Town, in the heart of trendy Woodstock; with easy access from town (Good Hope Centre), the N1 (Lower Church Street) and the N2 (Searle Street). We currently have 300 undercover parking bays.
The Palms is an architectural delight, with an intriguing history , as it was originally the site of one of Cape Town’s first bakeries.
The building offers a variety of décor & lifestyle stores and spacious offices, which are home towell-known architects, fabric houses, creative people, property and real estate professionals, designers, photographers, recruitment, consulting and travel & destination services.
Woodstock is fast becoming a design hotspot and The Palms offers a one-stop destination for both your interior and exterior decor needs, which offer world-class products and services.
The airy grandeur of the atrium and the tinkling of the fountains create an elegant ambiance, perfect for browsing the stores or sipping coffee at your leisure.
The proposed 2020 new & redevelopment will be carefully planned with minimal inconvenience and disruption for existing tenants.
It utilises the character and form of the existing buildings to create an extraordinary mixed-use development with a modern warehouse design character.
The proposal involves the addition of high quality retail space, offices and a gym on the ground floor and through to the fifth floors, whilst apartments and a boutique hotel space will maximise the beautiful views and unique setting offered by the sixth to ninth floors. The total bulk for this scheme is +-59 500 m². An extension of the existing public atrium and the addition of a new covered walkway between the existing east and west wings, together with improved circulation areas and a stronger pedestrian link from Sir Lowry Road, tie together the various built elements into a more legible unit.
The proposal also includes the improvement of the existing Sir Lowry Road vehicular entrance and the addition of a new entrance to the basement parking from Selwyn Street and a left-out egress on Newmarket Street, to ensure improved circulation, convenience and vehicular safety.
Parking is provided by means of structured parking in basement and on covered parking decks, providing a total of 1 530 parking bays.
