Exciting news: 53 prime new Phase II stands will be launched in early May. This follows the phenomenal success of Phase I, which has seen 90% of all stands and all Oasis apartments sold out since the launch in March 2016.
The new Phase II sites are amongst the most attractive on the lifestyle resort, with half of them boasting fairway and river view frontage.
The erven range from 1 000 to 3 000 square metres and are priced from R3,6 to R12 million.
In the meantime, Phase I continues to be a hive of activity. Several architectural plans have been submitted for review, and in other areas, homes are already starting to take shape as hoarding is erected around stands and construction gets underway.
Steyn City brand ambassador T-Bo Touch had a fascinating and insightful interview with comedian Jason Goliath in the April edition of Khuluma, Kulula’s inflight magazine.
T-Bo spoke extensively about what drives him, mentioning Steyn City’s commitment to upliftment as one of his current passions. He acknowledged that Steyn City founder Douw Steyn’s investment in Steyn City is a unique and valuable contribution to South African society.
He added that it’s not only the glamour and scale of the lifestyle resort that makes it noteworthy, but also the impact it has had on the community. For instance, Steyn City has created over 12 000 jobs and makes a significant contribution to education with its annual charity drive, ‘Delivering Happiness to Diepsloot’. Over 9 000 primary school children in our neighbouring community benefit from this initiative, which delivers school backpacks crammed with stationery.
T-Bo will be hosting a golf invitational at Steyn City on 9 May to raise funds for the initiative, with an eye to making this year’s event bigger and better than ever.
On 10 April, 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day – the charity initiative founded by Caroline Steyn, wife of Steyn City founder Douw Steyn – teamed with Lead SA to host ‘Holding Hands’.
This stirring event was held at Steyn City’s Mandela Park, and aimed to promote awareness of the movement. The highlight included the creation of a patchwork of blankets in LEAD SA’s corporate colours of red, white and black, honouring the organisation for having facilitated a donation of R14 million worth of wool from an anonymous donor. The wool is being used by thousands of South Africans – including prisoners – to knit blankets, which will be distributed to the poor.
67 Blankets recently revealed plans to break the Guinness World Record for creating the biggest blanket ever scheduled on 22 April at the Drakenstein Correctional Centre in the Western Cape.
