V&A Waterfront living at No. 1 and 2 Silo

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.”
