Investing in a new development that is still in the process of construction can be daunting. That is why it is crucial to buy from a reputable developer such as Cosmopolitan Projects and Central Development Group, the developers of Lion Pride Lifestyle Estate. With a proven track record in delivering integrated developments, they have a unique vision for this special piece of land close to Fourways.
“Five years from now Lion Pride will be a landmark in the north of Johannesburg with 4,100 houses and apartments, a shopping centre, school and recreational amenities built where there are now only open grasslands to be seen,” says Alda Erasmus, Head of Communications at Cosmopolitan. “It will be exciting to see this vision unfold and become a reality.” Currently 335 of the eventual 2,700 houses of Lion Pride are under construction and 90 have been completed. The third of eight security villages is launching around July and construction on 1,400 rental apartments will also be starting later this year. However, this micro-city will offer much more than just housing.
It will have a variety of educational, commercial and recreational amenities that will enable its residents to live, work, shop, learn and play all within the safe confines of the greater estate. So what will life look like for the residents of Lion Pride Lifestyle Estate in five years’ time? Lion Pride’s independent school, which is set to open in 2023, will provide quality education to pupils from Grade RRR to Grade 12. Children from all over the greater Lion Pride will be able to walk and cycle safely to and from the school, and younger kids can enjoy the various play parks’ water fountains, climbing boulders and jungle gyms.
Residents of all ages can walk, run and cycle around the beautiful 17ha wetland and grassland eco-park that the estate is developed around. By then, the organic urban design elements envisioned for the estate, such as meandering pathways, indigenous planting, rock cladded walls and a mix of metal and concrete signage, will also be well established and create an overall feeling of stylish tranquillity. Those who work from home will be able to make use of Surf4Life’s unthrottled, unshaped and uncapped fibre internet service provided on a no-contract, pre-paid, month-to-month basis. An 11,000 m² shopping centre situated in the heart of the greater development close to the school will also open its doors in 2023. Here, residents can conveniently pop into the shops for their daily essentials or to meet up with friends and neighbours in one of the local restaurants.
A vibrant community of about 15,000 residents will be enjoying the convenient lifestyle and 24-hour safety and security the estate offers. In addition, Lion Pride’s homeowners will be able to rest easy knowing that their money has been well invested. Other developments by the Cosmopolitan Projects and Central Developments Property Group, like Leopard’s Rest, have seen capital growth of between 8% and 13% per annum. Lion Pride‘s properties have already increased 11.5% in value since its launch in 2020 giving investors peace of mind that their investments will grow significantly over the next five years. But what makes Lion Pride truly unique is that even though it offers the same lifestyle, security and amenities as many of the exclusive estates in Gauteng, it comes at a reasonable price tag. Houses start from R1.152m which makes it perfect for middle- income earning first-time buyers and young families.
