Just as the edifice of Axis will rise above the landscape and the surrounding buildings of Century City’s burgeoning Bridgeways precinct, so too will this dramatic addition to the skyline elevate the quality of New Urban living it offers its residents.


Perfectly situated for both work and play, this landmark 11-storey building will be constructed just a minute’s stroll from the vibrant Century City Square, with its restaurants, coffee shops and pubs, its international conference centre and its warm, human-scale hotel. Just a little further away, in the Colosseum building, is an ever-useful Woolworths Food outlet, and the restaurants of the Crystal Towers hotel, while the hustle and bustle of Canal Walk, with its 400 shops, eateries and cinemas, is also within easy walking distance.


But the New Urban lifestyle is not only about convenient access to a wealth of retail and dining options; at its well sculpted core is healthy living. Less than 500 metres from the steps of the Axis foyer is the flagship Century City Virgin Active Health Club, which also provides a starting point for a seven-kilometre measured running and walking route that wends its scenic way along the banks of the Grand Canal and around the bird-watchers’ paradise of Intaka Island, Century City’s award-winning 16-hectare nature reserve.


The eight kilometres of canals and waterways that surround this precious green lung provide an increasingly popular opportunity for keeping fit in a kayak or on a stand-up paddle board. And just a jog away are the Fives Football courts, where enthusiastic participants compete in keenly contested corporate leagues. And if the oval ball is more to your fancy, the weekly winter touch rugby matches on the Century City Oval in Central Park are a great way to stay in top cardiovascular shape.


But it’s after all the activity, when the shopping and the working and the working out are over for the day, that the unique benefits of the Axis lifestyle will really come into their own. This is the time to congregate in the warm hospitality of the ground floor sundowner deck or retreat to the quietude of your own balcony or terrace, put your feet up and watch the sun slip behind the silhouette of Signal Hill with a cold drink close at hand. This is the time to congratulate yourself – again – for the foresight and wisdom you had when you signed that offer to purchase, time to celebrate life as a resident of Axis. And time to share your latest Instagram of today’s unique sunset with your social followers at near-instant upload speed provided by the fastest fibre optic connectivity Cape Town has to offer.
