Century City: A Happening Hub

Category Areas

Century City answers the needs and demands of the 21st Century and has become a sought-after address for corporate South Africa and home to a growing and thriving residential community. Situated between the M5 and M7 and connected to the N1, Century City can be easily accessed from the Northern Suburbs, Southern Suburbs and the Western Seaboard. The MyCiti bus operates throughout the area, which is also accessible by train and taxi; a welcome drawcard for employees.

Century City’s commercial business node is up-to-date, trendy and productive, which may explain why it is considered a particularly popular choice for technology companies.

Proudly Green
The original developers of Century City laid a pipeline from Potsdam Waste Water Works to Century City at the start of the development 20 years ago and so Century City is in the enviable position of having access to treated effluent which is used for all irrigation of common areas at Century City and also for each of the different residential and commercial complexes in the precinct. Treated effluent is also being used to flush toilets in the 17 Green Star rated commercial buildings at Century City as well as to run their cooling systems. []

Attractions and Amenities
Century City has a strong sense of community where work and lifestyle meet to create a balance of productivity and festivity. Central Park hosts many popular events from movie nights and markets to park runs. For nature lovers, Intaka Island is a popular bird watching destination. Intaka is a 16-hectare wetland area that naturally cleans the water in the canals and provides a green lung in an otherwise high-density development area. If indoor entertainment is appealing, the popular Canal Walk Shopping Centre has over 400 stores to choose from, 20 movie theatres, many restaurants and bars and an entertainment section.

Aside from entertainment attractions, the suburb is highly sought after due to the excellent schools and medical facilities, such as the Intercare Day Hospital.
