The challenges of every workday are enough to keep our stress levels on the rise – and then some when you hit that morning traffic…

With more motorists than ever on Cape Town’s roads, the drive to and from work takes anything from 30 minutes to almost 2 hours depending on where you live. Sitting in traffic isn’t just a waste of time – it also adds unnecessary stress to your day, leaving you feeling drained when you finally get home.

Until recently, living driving distance from the office was something most people had to do. But change is in the air.

Urban living –  a whole new lifestyle

There’s an easy way to cut down on the schlep of commuting for hours a day – and make time for the things that matter.

By living close to your workplace, you’ll save time, petrol, money and frustration – and you’ll enjoy a lifestyle that’s the envy of people across South Africa.

Over the past decade, Capetonians have embraced urban living in a big way. The CBD and Century City are bustling with new residents as mixed use buildings offer them ultra-modern living just a few minutes’ drive – or cycle – from work.

  • This new way of living is all about convenience, on-demand services and green-friendly urban spaces.
  • Waking up in a modern apartment with great city, sea, or mountain views, you’ll feel refreshed as you make your way to work in minutes.
  • For some residents, living close to their office space means they have the chance to walk or cycle to work – just think of the health benefits!
  • For others, there’s no more need for multiple cars per family since the ride to work is so much easier by Uber.

Choosing an office space near to home – that’s what we call the future of work

If you already have a home that suits you to a tee, you may want to consider moving your office space to a nearby location. As commercial properties pop up in areas that used to be purely residential, there’s a great variety of office premises available across the greater Cape Town region.
