The new Stanley Studio development is located in the heart of Milpark opposite the popular 44 Stanley development.
The new development is a mix-use development with retail and office space fronting Stanley Street with residential units on the remainder of the site. The existing retail mall is to be demolished while the vertical access to the basement and Virgin Active Gym will remain.
The existing super basement below the Virgin Active gym will provide ample parking for the apartment tenants. Three retail spaces on the Stanley street side of the project responds to the vibrant street life and serves as a barrier between the street and the apartment units, ensuring a more tranquil atmosphere for the residents. Two office floor levels above the retail space will be accessible from the green courtyard space. The 197 apartments are predominantly studio apartments built around courtyard spaces with direct accessibility to the ground floor units.
The apartment blocks will be built on 3 levels, orientated north to maximise natural light. A pool and entertainment area is planned in the sunny northern corner of the development and amenities will include braai facilities and a small function room.
The development will have a combination of heat pumps and solar heating for the hot water generation of the apartments.
