If the thought of waking up to the sound of seagulls and water lapping gently against boats is to your liking, then look no further than the exclusive new No. 2 Silo development, the V&A Waterfront’s first new residential offering in over a decade.
Set on the water’s edge in the historical Grain Silo Heritage site, No. 2 Silo offers picturesque views over the harbour, sea, city and mountains. In its entirety the development includes No. 1 Silo, with 18 000m² triple A-grade office space, and No. 2 Silo with 31 luxurious one and two-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 70m² to 157m². Plans are also in place for further development of the old Grain Silo.
No. 2 Silo is marked by minimalist architecture, three meter high ceilings emphasising the spaciousness of each open plan apartment, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors adding a light and airy element while seamlessly extending the indoor living areas outdoors. Stylish en-suite bathrooms, large entertainment areas and wrap-around balconies are all in keeping with the latest design trends.
Environmental innovations also feature and each apartment boasts external solar shading, sea water cooling, a centralised solar heated hot water system, high performance thermal and acoustic insulated glass, low energy lighting, water-efficient showers and toilets, energy and water-efficient kitchen appliances and even a website allowing homeowners to track and manage their water and energy consumption.
To make the most of the magnificent views, the rooftop has been converted into a communal leisure area complete with a 10m x 3.5m ozonated swimming pool, a landscaped water-wise garden, and gas braai facilities.
Speaking about the broader V&A Waterfront offering and experience, David Green, CEO of the V&A Waterfront said “A central vision for the V&A Waterfront has always been to create a space to be lived in, a complete lifestyle, and we believe No.2 Silo achieves that. The working harbour provides a lively backdrop to over 450 world-class retailers, colourful markets, a choice of over 80 eateries including top grade seafood restaurants, traditional Indian and everything in-between, luxury spa’s, outdoor activities and much more.”
