Just one year after our March 2015 launch date, Steyn City has recorded sales close to R1.5 billion. This impressive figure includes sectional title units, freehold homes and stands.
The reasons for this stellar success are clear. For a start, purchasers are able to experience, first-hand, the excellent facilities (from restaurants to the equestrian centre, golf course and club house) that they will be able to enjoy as residents. This stands in stark contrast to many developments, where potential buyers have to wait for infrastructure to be completed.
Steyn City has been selected by production company Cheeky Media to host the fourth season of The Man Cave.
Celebs Janez Vermeiren, Lunga Shabalala,d Siv Ngesi and Warrick Stock (DJ Warras) are the stars of the series, pushing masculinity to the max as they test-drive high performance cars, undertake gruelling fitness and adventure challenges, explore fashion trends and try their hands at dude food. Steyn City’s magnificent facilities and 2 000 acres of parkland is the perfect backdrop for these challenges.
It’s not all rough and tough, though: the lads will return to ‘base camp’, a luxurious Steyn City home, every evening.
The series runs on SABC3 at a new timeslot of 18h00, starting from Sunday 10 April.
Steyn City is hosting a social media competition, enabling entrants to win their own Man Cave experience. Monthly prizes include the chance to join us behind the scene in the Man Cave, followed by lunch at The Deli, while the main prize is a meal for four at Nineteen Restaurant (XIX) or a four ball at Steyn City’s Nicklaus-design 18-hole championship golf course. Competition entry details will be published on our social media platforms. Follow us on:
This month, Steyn City took great pride in recognising World Forestry Day on 21 March 2016. The annual event is a celebration of the forests and trees which sustain and protect us.
Outdoor living is at the heart of Steyn City’s urban philosophy and its on-site nature reserve, Porcupine Park, is home to many wildlife species. The dense planting to transform the site into an indigenous urban forest is a hallmark feature.
Steyn City has planted over 500 000 indigenous trees, shrubs and ground covers to create forest and parkland areas.
With a further 500 000 indigenous plants under cover in the nurseries at Steyn City, more than one million flora will eventually be planted at this new lifestyle resort.
More than 50% of Steyn City’s 2 000 acres is dedicated to green lung areas, creating a natural haven where residents can explore the outdoors and relax under canopies of shade.
Careful planning and design ensures that all properties at Steyn City, whether an apartment, cluster or free-standing home, borders onto a green belt. The sense of space this creates is powerful: residents can walk out of their homes, to wander along a parkland path spanning several kilometers.
The land at Steyn City is undergoing extensive rehabilitation, which will eventually restore it to its natural environment. The results of this operation are already evidenced by its prolific bird life. Sightings of species like the African Jacana, Black Cuckoo, White-fronted bee-eater, Crested Eagle and Secretary Bird are becoming a frequent occurrence. The indigenous planting also attracts, feeds and protects butterflies and moths.
From a practical perspective, the dense planting of trees at Steyn City will also help to control noise pollution, act as wind breaks and slow down storm water run-off. Other benefits include the production of oxygen and clean air and reduced soil pollution. The trees also capture carbon dioxide emitted from vehicles.
The Steyn City nurseries house thousands more trees that are being grown from seed and, in time, will be a source of seeds of endangered species.
These actions and initiatives have ensured that, more than a family lifestyle resort, Steyn City’s legacy will be that of a bastion of the environment.
