Conscious. Mindful. Aware.

When you live at The Eden, everything you need is on your doorstep: a connected, active community; creative meeting spaces; eclectic, independent shops; vibrant social venues; rich cultural heritage; excellent public transport; and essential stores all within walking distance.

The Eden lifestyle continues when you’re inside the building. We have designed The Eden to be a reflection of what is important to you as a conscious investor. Considered materials, energy-efficient features and communal leisure spaces allow you to live responsibly. From secure bicycle parking and recycling facilities to energy- and water-saving initiatives, we have considered every detail carefully, ensuring that the entire building mirrors our approach to development. We design for conscious living. And we do everything we can to enable a more sustainable, more community-minded, more enriched sense of living.

Designed with Conscious Intent

The Eden was meticulously designed to draw in the light – the natural light, taking full advantage of its north and northeast orientation as well as the vibrant night life of the local neighbourhood.

Excellent design was of utmost importance to us. We wanted to create a building that would be engaging and beautiful, while respecting the local context.

Each apartment, has been designed with your lifestyle in mind – fitted with high quality finishes and planned for seamless flow. Each one has a terrace, extending the living area; and floor-to-ceiling windows maximise the views from every angle and draw in the natural light and fresh air.

The Eden contains the best elements of residential architecture, and will set a new benchmark in Observatory.

Take Advantage of the UDZ

The Eden falls within Cape Town’s Urban Development Zone (UDZ), allowing buy-to-let investors to claim a capital deduction / tax write-off on their investment. Under the scheme, investors may write off 55% of the VAT inclusive purchase price over an 11-year period and offset their tax losses against other taxable income.

The major benefit to investors is that the large capital deduction is not automatically ‘ring-fenced’ and generally creates a substantial tax loss situation for the investor. This tax loss is allowed to be off-set against other taxable income (e.g. a salary or other trade income) which can result in a very attractive situation where the investor initially receives PAYE/tax back upon filing their tax return. This is very useful to fund any negative cash flow requirement during the first few years of a buy-to-let property. Download our brochure for more information and examples.
