A new future in city living


From the expansive exterior to the plush interiors of its 700 apartments, Steyn City’s City Centre is a celebration of extraordinary design

Steyn City is known for pushing boundaries; for innovating, creating and doing things differently. This ethos was evident when the time came to determine design interiors for the new City Centre: Steyn City Properties CEO Giuseppe Plumari was adamant that they should reflect the development’s unique character with a clear and discernable emphasis on luxury and comfort.

Design challenge

With this in mind, eight of SA’s leading interior experts – Stephen Falcke, Lesley Carstens and Silvio Rech, Buzwe Mabuza, Yvonne O’Brien, Amanda Elliott, Bilala Mabuza, Donald Nxumalo and Ayesha Nobanda – were brought on board to design the interiors of eight City Centre apartments, ranging from penthouses to one-bedroom homes. The catch? None was given a brief – instead, they were asked to create a home for the homeowner they imagine to be the typical City Centre resident. The results are as varied as they are beautiful. From the cosmopolitan jetsetter to the art lover, from the young executive marching her way up the corporate ladder to the couple who appreciates life’s finer pleasures, and ultimately the family seeking a safe haven where they can live their lives to the fullest – all are represented here by interiors that explore the full spectrum of extremes; from unabashed opulence to understated elegance.

Breathing space

What each outstanding home has in common, however, is having been designed by the City Centre’s forward-thinking architects whose primary concern was to create an apartment that feels spacious. With high ceilings and doorways and rooms large enough to fit a king-size bed (and extra furnishings), this is a new take on apartment living that becomes a permanent address – one where the convenience synonymous with these homes is given a new dimension with the addition of room to breathe.

Endless amenities

Of course, this is augmented by the many features that make the City Centre such a special address, including rooftop pools and triple biometric security. Then there are the facilities available in the broader Steyn City parkland. These include the 2,000 acre indigenous parkland itself (effectively giving City Centre residents access to one of the largest gardens in SA), the 18-hole Nicklaus design championship golf course with its award-winning clubhouse, the equestrian centre with a clubhouse, outdoor gym stations, a fully equipped gym, a 45km floodlit promenade for running and walking, cycling on the 50km MTB track, a choice of eateries, an indoor aquatic centre, outdoor play nodes and a skate park for kids and teens. There are also on-site offices at Capital Park and the Steyn City School campus. The cherry on top? The recently launched Ultimate Helistop, offering scheduled flights to your next business meeting or weekend getaway, and the new 300m Lagoon powered by GAST Clearwater™, which make every day feel like a holiday, and it’s a short walk away from your City Centre front door. Apartment prices range from R2.3m to R35m. All of this is showcased at the City Centre’s new Brand Experience Centre – ideal for those who wish to explore the latest Steyn City development and its offerings at a high level.
