Cape Town’s southern suburbs have witnessed a wave of development over the past decade, with Claremont leading the charge.

From its beginnings as a residential suburb in the 1970s, the area has developed rapidly to become a “city within a city” serving the Mother City’s southern region.

With excellent retail, dining and office space available – and more being developed – Claremont is carving out a prominent place on the commercial property map. Here are some great reasons to choose this area for your next commercial space – whether as an investor or tenant.

Centrally located, without the downtown rush

Nestled between Rondebosch, Kenilworth and Newlands, Claremont is situated in the heart of the southern suburbs.

  • With its leafy streets and easy-going atmosphere, Claremont offers a tranquil and dynamic environment for work and living.
  • Creative industries, financial consultancies, and other professionals are just some of the businesses that have relocated to the area in recent years.

With an excellent choice of commercial property in Claremont – from coffee shop premises to cutting-edge green office spaces – the area offers top class business infrastructure. The suburb managed to achieve this without the hustle and bustle of a central business district.

Easy access to transport infrastructure

Claremont’s location and proximity to road, bus and train transportation hubs is ideal for commercial property tenants outside of Cape Town’s main hub.

The M5 motorway, which links the southern suburbs to Cape Town’s CBD, runs along the eastern side of Claremont. A 20 minute drive links Claremont to the downtown area, where the N1 and N2 interchange can be accessed for a trip to the airport and northern suburbs.

For commercial property tenants and building users who prefer to use public transport, MyCiti buses and local trains offer a cost-effective and green friendly solution.

A great variety of new and redeveloped commercial properties

Claremont’s Main Road is home to many of the area’s commercial buildings, with new developments appearing on secondary roads each year.

From brand-new developments with ultra-modern designs to beautifully renovated historic buildings, the choice of commercial space in Claremont never fails to impress buyers and tenants.
