It’s time to reflect on our progress in 2017

We have reached the end of the year and it’s time to reflect back on 2017. Despite a few challenges, I am pleased with the progress our team has made during 2017.

We have welcomed many new tenants to our properties and trust that they are settled and happy in their new premises. At the beginning of the year we purchased two properties in Kya Sand and Sunninghill respectively. We are in the process of renovating 1 River Road in Riverview Office Park, Midrand, which has progressed nicely and is close to completion.

In June we hosted a ground breaking ceremony for 13 mini warehousing units that we are developing in Corporate Park North, Midrand. We expect these units to be ready for occupation by May 2018. It is a very exciting project for us as this is the first property we are developing from scratch since becoming Fieldspace in 2015. View a virtual reality rendition of what the units will look like here.

We currently offer serviced office suites under the brand name The Orchard at 89 Bute Lane in Sandton and Block G in Hurlingham Office Park. The refurbishment of the Ground Floor offices at Block G Hurlingham Office Park has progressed well and is days away from completion. Once complete, we will be providing boardrooms which can be booked per hour, online via the website www.theorchard.co.za.

In July we launched a massive canned food collection as our contribution to the Mandela Day initiative and we are extremely grateful to those tenants who generously donated cans of food toward this worthy cause.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all well over the festive season and look forward to a great year ahead.
