Berea. One of Durban’s most sought-after areas.
The Berea is a ridge above Durban in KwaZulu-Natal enjoying panoramic views over Durban’s city centre and the Indian Ocean. Berea (as the suburbs are collectively known) is made up of three main suburbs Musgrave, Morningside and Stamford Hill.
A discerning mix of the old and the new
Berea is home to some of the oldest mansions in the Durban area, many of which have been refurbished and converted into prime office space. Once the most expensive real-estate area in KwaZulu-Natal, Berea has now been surpassed in this regard by Umhlanga and Durban North, providing at least slightly more affordable opportunities to those looking for good quality office space.
Successfully blending both Victorian and Contemporary architecture, Berea has become a vibrant area that is ideal for businesses looking for a characterful environment with easy access to good restaurants, pubs and coffee shops – for both their clients, and for their staff's convenience and enjoyment.
The reason for Berea’s popularity can be tied directly back to its ideal location which is in close proximity to the city of Durban as well as all major access routes to the north, south and west. Popular attractions in the area include the Durban Botanical Gardens on the eastern slopes of The Berea ridge.
The fashionable Florida Road which leads off the ridge, south of Mitchell Park towards Windemere, is a humming commercial part of the area – filled with art galleries, restaurants, shops and boutiques. Another focal point in the Berea is Musgrave Mall (also known as Musgrave Centre) – a shopper’s paradise that has recently undergone extensive renovations to the value of R160 million. The centre boasts over 30 new stores, taking the retail offering up to more than 120 outlets.
Featuring prime office space
Another exciting office park in the Berea is the Lion Match Office Park. The re-development of this magnificent and historical landmark has been prompted by the high office rental demand for A-Grade offices in the Berea. There are various office spaces to choose from 315 m² up to 900m² with rental rates starting at R120 per m².
