Existing penthouses are in the Avenues along Tongogara Avenue area but WestProp is spreading the properties at all its development sites giving customers a choice of location and an option to assist in the design – customer taste.
Last year WestProp CEO Mr Ken Sharpe announced the game changing development amid a lot of excitement from a market that has long been deprived of the luxuries and exclusivity associated with penthouses.
The first penthouses are under construction at Millennium Heights on block 4 popularly known as the ED block that is nearing completion with the next set of penthouses set for block 5 to block 8.
The next exciting development to comprise of penthouses will be The Hills Golf Lifestyle Estate and the Pomona City Estate Phase 3 and 4 – A city within a city.
A good number of Zimbabweans were opting to invest in penthouses in South Africa, Dubai and parts of Asia and Europe but with the availability of the premium housing units – the trend is set to change with more Zimbabweans buying the properties locally.
“We scanned the local market and discovered the huge demand for penthouses. We also listened to our growing customer base that requires a change in lifestyle.
“We then decided to follow the market desires,” said Mr Sharpe.
The penthouses bring the much needed flair in the growing property market which now feeds on exclusivity and luxury life styles.
The signature penthouses are an affirmation of wealth as the units denote “arrival”. They are usually perched on the top floor with the best views described by Mr Sharpe as “owning the clouds, and witnessing daily sunrises and sunsets in unparalleled privacy.”
The advantages of penthouses on ED block to customers provide the customer the first opportunity to own a penthouse in the tallest residential building in the northern suburbs with panoramic views.
The ED block has vertically integrated gardens with spacious balconies/verandas which can be used entertainment areas.
