Construction on the R1,4 Billion Umgeni Lifestyle and Deco Park is in full swing and is expecting the completion of Phase A of construction by as soon as October this year and the grand opening on the 1 November 2018.

It presents a safe and beautifully landscaped zone with green spaces and walkways across 135,000m² of centrally located land, which will become the final piece of the Umgeni precinct masterplan.

“When you drive along the Springfield and Umgeni industrial areas, there is a significant amount of clutter with haphazard businesses competing against each other. The Umgeni Lifestyle and Deco Park is a unique concept that aims to formalise the vibrant node offering high-spec infrastructure, management association, a ‘green’ environment, comprehensive framework of complimentary services which allows it to stand out from the crowd. We are proud to bring this exceptional opportunity to KwaZulu-Natal and pioneer a commercial property offering of international standards,” shares Stephen Lawson, Developer Manager from Eris Property Group.

“With the first phase of infrastructure nearing completion, we are looking forward to handing over the first site to Zebbies Lighting in November 2018, followed by CTM in early 2019. Businesses that offer anything from home improvement products and appliances, building supplies, furniture, flooring and blinds to outdoor lifestyle products, call centres, offices and motor vehicle dealerships will find this space beneficial. This park will allow businesses to lease a facility designed in accordance with their specifications and will provide them with the much-needed space to house their showroom, office and distribution within one site,” further explains Lawson.

As a business you want to be centrally located but also feel secure and safe, and what makes the Umgeni Lifestyle and Deco Park development an exceptional product is the fact that it has extremely easy access to the N2, N3 and M19 within the busy Springfield node. It’s merely 5km from Central Durban, 10km from the harbour and 25km to King Shaka International Airport.

“There is a trend forming globally where mixed-use buildings provide a range of functions comprising of showroom, office, distribution and lifestyle facilities. The concept of the Umgeni Lifestyle and Deco Park has been inspired by this trend in which businesses will not only be provided with ample spaces, but it creates a safe lifestyle offering where employees or visitors don’t need to leave the vicinity, as they will be able to shop, eat as well as access the premises and avoiding traffic congestion,” says Lawson.

In less than 2-months Umgeni Lifestyle and Décor Park will be a game-changing reality in the industrial/commercial property sector of KwaZulu-Natal. It will add immense value to the Umgeni area and initiate the start of a new commercial property offering.
