Castle Gate to get new gym and offices

8th July 2021 By: Schalk Burger - Creamer Media Senior Contributing Editor

The 6 000 m2 mixed-use precinct Castle Gate Lifestyle Centre, in Pretoria, will get a Planet Fitness gym and 3 500 m2 of premium office space added to it at a cost of R150-million, property developer and investor Atterbury says.

Construction of the gym and office building is under way and progressing well. The structure comprises two wings that are about equal in size, with one to be occupied by Planet Fitness and the other to be used for offices.

Two of the three office floors are already let, with Atterbury securing the tenancies of VDT Attorneys in 1 700 m2 and Central Developments in 450 m2.

The gym and offices have become the latest building blocks in a vibrant mixed-use precinct that will create meaningful value and massive positive impacts.

On completion, this unique and sizeable infill development is expected to represent a total investment of R6-billion, and 20 000 permanent jobs will have been created owing to its development.

"The new office and gym building will echo the understated yet impressive architectural language. Honest, elegant and welcoming, the design also applies green building principles, from energy efficiency and rooftop solar to Castle Gate’s centralised water-filtration plant."

The newest building in Castle Gate is set for completion in February 2022.
