From the Developer’s Desk: 2024 Q2

Greetings, CentralBlue residents and future homeowners!

Can you believe the speed this year is zooming by? 

Time is flying, and so are we! Our community is flourishing and growing, and we’re thrilled to keep you in the loop with all the latest happenings in CentralBlue. Get ready for a brand-new eco-conscious rental project kicking off in July 2024, with our new freestanding homes eFree that have just launched!

New freestanding homes at CentralBlue: eFree

We were excited to officially launch our eFree homes at the beginning of June. Construction is set to begin in mid-August 2024, pending Council Approval. People have been raving about our freestanding homes and the innovative design of our eHomes with their sustainable features. We’re confident that these units will be a huge success, offering a perfect blend of freestanding homes with Citra’s unique designs and quality. The first unit is expected to be completed in Q2 2025, and we can’t wait to see the response from our customers.

Indigo Heights Apartments

Now available for rent!

The long-awaited finishing touches on Indigo Heights are nearly done, with Block G & H now open for move-in. Indigo Heights is a top choice for people seeking a temporary rental option as they work towards their forever home, and is now welcoming new tenants.

Emerald Village: Welcoming New Homeowners

Exciting news from Emerald Village as we completed our first handover in April! 

The remainder of the units are to be inspected by CoCT. The expected occupational sign-off is mid-July 2024. The last touch-ups are in full swing with paving, grassing, and boundary wall installation currently underway. We are experiencing a slight delay with the Eskom meter installation due to internal changes at the SOE, but rest assured we are working diligently to resolve this issue.

 

We are thrilled to announce that all first-phase clients will be able to move in by the end of June 2024, and we can’t wait to welcome them to our popular community. Second-phase clients can expect to move in by the end of Quarter 3 2024. Exciting times are ahead at Emerald Village!

Emerald Place 3 eHome

Phase 14 of our eHomes project is off to a great start, with some early birds already securing their units. We’re happy to announce that the first 10 buyers will receive free appliances as a special thank you from us. Construction kicked off in May and we’re making solid progress, with council approval at an impressive 90%. The first unit is on track to be finished by December 2024. Keep an eye out for more updates as we continue to move forward with this exciting development!

From the Desk of the Developer – 2023 Q1

We started 2023 at full steam and we have some great news to share. 

 

Indigo Heights – Apartments

The first block of apartments is scheduled to be completed in March 2023 and another two blocks will be ready at the end of April. We are thrilled to welcome the first residents to Indigo Heights 1.

The sales agents will be in contact closer to the time to confirm handover dates.

Ochre Place – eHomes Phase 2

Delays in delivery of the PV panels due to the high demand currently experienced in the country have affected the handover dates of some of the units. We are pleased to announce that we have now received PV panels and the council has signed off on 11 units. The remaining 12 are scheduled to be signed off in early March. 2023.

We have already started welcoming clients of this phase to CentralBlue and the remaining clients can expect to hear from their agents shortly.

Congratulations to all the future homeowners of this phase.

Emerald Village – Freestanding

As mentioned in the previous newsletter, we experienced delays in the servicing of the site due to the previous contractor being liquidated. The installation of the services is finally coming to an end and the site had been handed over to the top structure contractor. Construction of the first units has begun with the first foundations to be cast in March 2023.

Please note that the construction of units is sequenced and no units will begin construction at the same time. The construction roll-out has been programmed according to building plan approval, the contractors preferred sequence of the works and the current site conditions.

Thank you again to the future homeowners of Emerald Village for your patience.

Thanks again to those of you who attended the CentralBlue Family Festival on the 17th of Dec 2022. Since it was such a success we have decided we will be repeating this event every year and we would love to have your feedback in order to make the next one even more memorable!
