Developments

"Although not easy, our philosophy around sustainable development is simple."

Each Similan estate is carefully designed and always keeps the wellbeing of its residents as the central focus.

Critical components such as effective security, proximity to transport connections, and access to good schools are literally built into the fibre of each estate. Perhaps less tangible, but equally vital, are elements such as communal spaces that encourage neighbourhood living, well-maintained and inviting green areas, and environmental care.

Launching soon: New development in the Cape Winelands


This new mix-use development is designed to connect a kaleidoscope of people who live, work, play, and shop in a welcoming village-inspired environment at the heart of the Winelands. 


The project will create work opportunities for approximately 180 skilled labourers, 180 unskilled labourers and 20 people providing management and consulting services during the construction phase of the residential part. 


The construction of a school and business or retail units will also provide about 15 management and consultant work opportunities, 100 unskilled and 100 skilled labour opportunities respectively. Once all of these buildings are completed, there will be a total of over a thousand ongoing job opportunities here including teachers, retail or commercial staff, rental agents, estate agents, domestic workers, gardeners and estate management staff. 

 

This investment is expected to bring over R85m in development contributions to the local municipality as well as over R1m in business rates and taxes and over R8m in residential rates and taxes once completed.

Selcourt Estate


Similan was the development management company during the establishment of Selcourt Estate in Springs to offer secure housing to young professionals, first-time buyers, married couples, and families. This estate was designed to be a safe environment where youngsters can live out the simple pleasures of childhood while their parents enjoy all the benefits of community living, a clean environment, and green outdoor spaces.

Excellent security, a modern and innovative approach to landscaping, internet connectivity, and homes with modern, clean designs came together in this residential development that was managed by Similan during the first years since the construction of the first 1108 homes and apartments.
