The Orangerie

The Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged faced a challenge when Disa Place in Gardens began to grapple with increasing under-utilisation. The retirement home was on an 8,000m² property, sited next to the Mount Nelson Hotel.

After consultations led by Neil Gardner, founder of GPS and then deal originator for Old Mutual Property, the organisation elected to develop a R220-million development of duplex and simplex apartments, designed around a garden courtyard with its own canal. The organisation relocated residents of Disa Place to their home of choice.

The new complex, The Orangerie, appealed to professionals, regular travellers to Cape Town and investors who achieved excellent rental yields.

As with Mutual Heights and Cartwright’s Corner, development followed a successful pre-sales marketing campaign.
