Building The Future

City Property is a management agent with a vision to bring new life into cities through urban renewal. We hope to create living, working, shopping and leisure spaces that are customer-centric by building upmarket, cosmopolitan and sophisticated property.

We have an enthusiasm for all aspects of city life and by constantly introducing new initiatives we hope to reignite consumer interest in inner city areas. These revivals will boost social cohesion and attract people from all walks of life to share living and working space. By re-establishing the CBD’s of Gauteng, our cities will become increasingly viable and desirable locations for business, accommodation and leisure. We are excited to develop and change available spaces to suit the needs of new tenants.

We are listed with the entity Octodec Investment Limited as well as a number of private clients and have almost 50 years’ experience in the property industry. Through our experience we have left a successful history of unlocking value in redevelopments, refurbishments and the management of underperforming properties. Our transformation strategy is aligned with the draft Property Sector Code and we have appointed a corporate advisory team to assist with the implementation of the formal transformation plan and B-BBEE strategy. We believe that each project completed and property built, addresses the future of South Africa’s cities and its people.

Our Approach

Building the Future of Property

We’re changing and improving the urban landscape to create spaces for communities to live, work and play. Our retail, office, warehouses and apartment spaces create opportunities for corporates and individuals to enjoy their South African cities. 

By combining our experience in property management and property holding asset management with skillful passionate staff we’re shaping the future of property. 
 
We focus on changing the property landscape in both the Johannesburg and Tshwane areas.
 

Property Management

As a leading property company, our success not only lies in the onsite management and maintenance teams that care for our properties and its tenants but also the administration staff. This includes friendly call centre staff, customer care, leasing and billing staff, contractors and other support staff.

With live-in building managers at most of our properties, our team on the ground are there to assist with moving as well as maintenance matters. We also handle the strategic management, supervision and implementation relating to acquisitions and disposals as well as upgrades and renovations.

With over 400 diverse properties, 9 963 flats and 1,5 million square meters of commercial space to manage, we strive to not only meet the needs of our residents but also make their stay unforgettable.

Investing in the City

For us, new developments are not just a design exercise. We operate in an urban environment. The challenge is always to incorporate the old with the new in order to give older properties and areas a new life.

We are currently involved in three major developments to the value of over R800 million in Tshwane and Johannesburg. This is in addition to the current upgrade of over 40 existing buildings at a cost of R300 million. Our investments in the city ensures that properties are not only well maintained but that they continue to offer modern and upmarket solutions to the property market.
 

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • Lafika La Phodisa: Provided donations towards the establishment of an early development programme at their Johannesburg premises as well as the Tshwane informal traders bursary scheme. 
  • Santa Shoebox: The annual initiative will again brighten up children’s faces. We provided them with a personalised message, a box filled with stationery, toys, clothing, personal hygiene items and a treat or two.
  • Women And Men Against Child Abuse: Our cycle team ride in the Telkom 94.7 Cycle Challenge to raise funds. Staff who participate in the 702 Discovery Walk-the-Talk also use this platform to “protest” for the rights of children for WAMACA. We take an active stance against violence towards children.

Through our extensive network of contractors, we also assist with various maintenance matters at children's centres, schools and places of safety. For more information or if you want to get involved in our initiatives, contact us on citycare@cityprop.co.za.
