The quintessential development will comprise of A and Premium grade commercial office space, a world-class public exhibition centre, an elegant craft brewery, retail, a Virgin Active gym and restaurants surrounding an open air piazza, thereby creating an energetic and vibrant atmosphere.    

Jackie van Niekerk, CEO of Pivotal commented: “We are very excited about this unique development, secured by Abland, and believe we’ve raised the bar with an exceptional mixed-use concept locat ed in the heart of one of our country’s richest historical rugby institutions.   

 With Loftus Versfeld, an iconic landmark in the city and the heartbeat of Tshwane and adjacent to Loftus  park, the development is in an exclusive location with excellent proximity to the Union Buildings, embassies, the University of Pretoria and various prestigious schools and hospitals.”  

Loftus Park is convenient, and easily accessible, from all major transportation routes in Gauteng. The close proximity to the Hatfield Gautrain station connects Loftus Park to Centurion, Rosebank, Sandton, Johannesburg and OR Tambo International Airport.  

The latest sustainable green building practices will be used and energy efficient technologies will be implemented to save utility costs for the prospective tenant. This should ensure a Green Star rating, a landmark of excellence for environmentally sustainable buildings, for Loftus Park.
