Aquarius, 10 Blaauwberg Road, Bloubergrant
Aquarius boasts an enviable seafront location which takes advantage of one of the most famous and photographed views in Africa, with some of the apartments having views of both Table Mountain and Table Bay.
The Blouberg area, which is arguably one of the fastest-growing residential areas in the country, is a metropolis of restaurants and cafés, shopping centres, golf courses, public and private schools, libraries, and two private hospitals.
+- 15km from Cape Town central and 20 minutes by road from Cape Town International Airport, Blouberg is conveniently situated to the main arterial roads, the N1, N2 and N7. An exciting development is the rapid bus transport system, which is believed to be operational somewhere in the first quarter of 2011.
The contemporary architectural expression of the building derives from the desire to create a building of visual strength and drama. All business unit spaces are glass boxes located on the first 2 levels of the building enjoying significance and transparency. Some of the apartments are south facing, giving you views of Table Mountain or north facing, which offers you a sunny unit with views of the sea and Robben Island.
The complete interior is a simple palette of neutrals and is based in natural light, thanks to the transparency of the glazing throughout. Internally granite and porcelain have been applied to the apartments with upmarket joinery feature throughout the building.
The overall effect of the design therefore is expansive, airy and light.
Aquarius offers a fully operational gym and exquisite pool on the top deck with awesome views of the Blouberg area ... and of course Table Mountain and the bay.
