For Abland it is all about understanding the power of space. For over 30 years Abland Property Developers have been at the forefront of creating groundbreaking spaces for businesses across South Africa. With a focused approach on developing space for commercial, retail, industrial, motor and mixed-use precincts they are consistently shaping the South African landscape for the better.
Mixed-use developments, better known as precincts, might be a fairly new concept in the South African industry, but for Abland it’s one that they have been mastering for a number of years. The idea of creating spaces where one’s work life integrates seamlessly with one’s lifestyle is something that has led Abland to look at property development in a more holistic way. This starts by identifying land that’s not only attractive from an investment point of view but also ideally positioned to live up to consumer demands. Transport, accessibility, active lifestyles, green environments, sustainable buildings and connectivity to retail environments are just some of the key elements that they would look at to accompany a development with P-grade office space as its core.
