Construction is underway on Cape Town's newest landmark mixed-use building

Construction is underway on the corner of Loop and Riebeek Streets in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD as The Rubik – an exciting and unique new luxury mixed-use building – joins the city skyline.

Construction stage

The Rubik consists of luxury residential apartments above premium offices and high-end retail space – all housed within a highly distinctive modern glass clad “tiered” building that promises to become an icon in Cape Town’s central business district. This cutting-edge building is set to change the status quo of property development in South Africa with its unique architecture and design.

Lesley Rensburg, Dogon Group Sales agent for The Rubik explains that the apartments, penthouses and offices within The Rubik feature floor to ceiling windows, 24-hour concierge security, state-of-the-art technology, luxury fixtures and finishes, minimalist elements of elegant stone, glass and wood, and lots of clean open spaces. “These features – coupled with the prime location and spectacular views over Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the ocean – offer highly desirable inner city living, with prices starting from R2,18 million for a one-bedroom apartment, ranging up to the most expensive 249 square metre penthouse apartment on the 25th floor for R16.35 million.”

“We have had high demand for apartments at The Rubik,” says Leah Sleigh, Sales Agent for The Rubik.  “Buyers who have an eye for contemporary design and premium architecture are drawn to this exceptional building in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, that offers all of the benefits of a centrally situated mixed-use development, coupled with luxurious finishes and spectacular views.”

“Important to note for potentially interested parties is that the prices are set to increase from the beginning of July, and so now is the ideal time to invest in one of these exceptional units in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD.”

Developed by Abland, with co-investors, and designed by DHK Architects, The Rubik promises to be one of the future “Great City Addresses”. Once completed, eight floors of pet-friendly apartments will sit atop 17 floors of premium office and retail space, including a restaurant, coffee shop and café. Residents will also enjoy a private rooftop terrace with pool and braai area.

The RUBIK Cape Town CBD

“The beautiful and modern The Rubik has a distinctly international feel that is in tune with global trends and influences,” says Alexa Horne, MD of Dogon Group Properties.  “This exciting building, which will stand as a design beacon in Cape Town’s CBD, allows buyers to live and work in a distinctive space within the bustling centre of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Loop Street is the most cosmopolitan street in the Mother City, attracting people for its vibrant nightlife, historic buildings, art galleries, antique shops and wide variety of restaurants, bars and cafes.”

To date the excavation and foundations have been completed, and work on the superstructure is proceeding apace. The Rubik is expected to be completed by March 2024.
