Winter warmers issue

ready for winter


As I write this, winter would appear to be here with a vengeance. Thankfully as part of the Century City Property Owners’ Association’s (CCPOA) winter preparedness plan, all CCPOA and City of Cape Town storm water inlets and drains were cleared of litter and plant debris prior to the first winter rains to prevent any unnecessary flooding. On the subject, our 7,5 kms of canals are an integral part of the Century City high flow storm water system and after the dry summer months, the winter rains play an important role in filling the canals and flushing out the waterways in readiness for Spring. While the Natural Goods Market is in hibernation until September 29, winter is canoeing season, with Century City Canoe Club members participating in weekly time trials on the canals every Tuesday evening and competing in races on the Western Cape rivers over the weekends. For many, winter is a time for a warm log fire, close friends and a glass or two of good red wine. However , may I recommend that for a real treat you take time to enjoy our city at its greenest and venture out, warmly dressed, for a brisk wall along the canals and Intaka Island. Stay warm!

Our Growing City 72% of Quays offices at century city sold or reserved

Over 72% of the 39 units in the Quays, an exciting new boutique commercial development under construction at Century City, have been sold or reserved since its launch late last year. Sedica Knight of developers Rabie Property Group said that to date 20 units have been sold for a total of just under R35million, while a further eight, totalling R17,5 million, have been reserved, with negotiations with purchasers well advanced. The deals completed or under negotiation represent 77% of the total value of units. She said that the low rise studio offices range in size from 41m2 to around 400m2, excluding balconies, and were priced from around R800 000, ex VAT. “As such, it is providing smaller

office users the opportunity to purchase in the burgeoning Century City precinct. “The two and three storey office buildings are set around courtyards, a water-fronting piazza and bistro restaurant, and have been designed as individual facades rather than a monolithic office block. The varying architecture will give the appearance of a village street edge that has evolved over time. “There are also a limited number of ancillary retailing units with street frontage and a few dual work and loft living opportunities.” The buildings will be serviced by a lift and will have 140 parking bays, including basement parking for tenants and podium parking for visitors. Knight said the Quays had an intimate scale and would embrace both the neighbouring residential

developments – Quayside and Quaynorth - as well as the Waterstone complex - and the Central Park commercial node. “It acts as an interface between the various components and has been designed to enhance the pavement ambiance of this very vibrant area where there are always people coming and going to the schools, Clubhouse and field, as well as canoeists who house their craft in the area, the bird watchers and other visitors to Intaka Island.” Knight said the development had appealed equally to investors and smaller owner occupiers such as service providers and professionals looking for an affordable entry into commercial property ownership at Century City. Construction is well underway with occupation expected in March/April 2014.

Precinct directors represent stakeholders

Century City is divided into 10 different precincts (see right). This serves two main purposes. Firstly, as pointed out in the previous edition of City Edits, each precinct is colour coded with the way finding signage, street signage and strategically placed precinct markers all in the distinctive colour of that particular precinct. This assists people in finding their way around Century City. Secondly, each precinct elects a representative director who

century city projects submitted to Wdc cape town 2014

Century City is exploring an exclusive multi-media marketing platform to give those living and working in Century City a cost effective, multi-pronged, all-inclusive medium to reach our 50 000 strong community. It is envisaged the multimedia marketing platform will be launched in the Spring and will provide business to business, business to consumer and consumer to business marketing opportunities at highly competitive rates. Details of the offering will be published as soon as possible so watch this space!

Century City has submitted three proposals to the World Design Capital (WDC) Cape Town 2014 multidisciplinary curatorial team for consideration as official WDC Cape Town 2014 projects. Chris Blackshaw, CEO of the Century City Property Owners’ Association, said their three proposals had focused on two of the WDC Cape Town 2014 themes, namely African Innovation. Global Conversation which pertains to any innovative, design-led project, policy, product or event that has originated in Africa and has a global relevance or Today for

Intaka Island: one of the projects submitted to WDC2014

Tomorrow, which encompasses green, brown and blue sustainability projects as well as those that focus on that human development, skills training, education initiatives and legacy projects. He said they would be submitting a further two projects when the second and final call for submissions opens in July.

Morris Alexander has visited 83 countries and lived an extraordinary life, but is best known for being the official Comrades historian. He ran 10 Comrades Marathons, winning gold for three as well as four other medals; he was invited to tea with King Farouk of Egypt after he was part of the official reception party at the station in Alexandria to meet the king’s sister Fawcia after she was banished back home by her husband the Shah of Persia; he was on the train with the Senussi King taking him across Libya to greet his people in 1944 after years in exile during the Italian invasion; he has climbed the Great Pyramid of Giza also known as the Pyramid of Cheops; he was a guinea pig for the first Air Sickness detection test and trained as an air force navigator during World War 2 and his grandfather, Richard Charles Alexander, then the Durban police superintendent, and his third wife, Jane, saved the life of Mahatma Ghandi in Durban in 1896. But what 94 year old Morris Alexander, a resident at the Oasis Luxury Retirement Resort at Century City, is perhaps best known for is being the official historian of the Comrades Marathon between 1960 and 1985 and for the three definitive editions of The Comrades Marathon Story he penned during this time. In fact in the words of John Cameron-Dow who was to succeed Morris as official historian of the Comrades: “I doubt that there has been a finer book in the broad field of South African sport than Morris Alexander’s The Comrades

Marathon Story.....All those who have run the great race talk about the legendary Comrades spirit and Morris Alexander captured it perfectly. In fact, he went further, he enhanced it. With all the skill of a greatly gifted author and the understanding of a pioneer runner and devoted administrator, Morris provided a living record that will remain an integral part of Comrades culture.” Other than “the war years” when he was serving primarily in East Africa (Kenya and Abyssinia, now known as Ethiopia), Aiden and Egypt, Morris ran 10 Comrades Marathons between 1937 and 1952 delivering his best performance in 1949 when he was placed fourth. He was also placed fifth one year and sixth another. It was a different race back then, he says. A much smaller affair. And while the distance has never changed, the route has.

“In the early years of the race only part of the route was tarred. It was only fully tarred in the early-1930s. When I was running there were also a lot more steep inclines and descents. There were no graded roads; those would only come later. They simply went straight up the hill.” The steepest climb, he says, was at Huntleys Hill – it was steeper but much shorter than the other great hills on the race - Cowies Hill, Fields Hill, Botha’s Hill, Inchanga and Polly Shortts. And while the route is now built up much of the way between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, in the 1950s much of it was undeveloped, very scenic and dotted with roadside country hotels and restaurants.. The competitors too, he says, have changed over the years. “Back then we worked all day and trained in the evenings. Now many of the competitors are fulltime athletes. It is their job.” It gives Morris great pride that in 1975 the Comrades became the first truly ”Rainbow nation sporting event” where regardless of one’s skin colour or gender one was able to compete. His running years were matched only by the years he then dedicated to administrating the race. In fact in 1950 it was Morris who practically single handedly saved the marathon from a certain death and from then until 1956 he served as chief executive of the organising committee, then a “small, amateur club affair” Continued on page 8

8 that was the forerunner to the Comrades Marathon Association which under Mick Winn would grow into a major world sporting event. For his major contribution to the Comrades, in 1990 Morris was the first “living” person to be awarded an Honorary Life member of the Comrades Marathon Association (CMA). A posthumous award was made to the Natal MEC for Roads, Frank Martin the year before. While his first love is the Comrades, his second is Ships and Travel and he has notched up quite a few nautical miles in his time. In fact he sailed on five troop ships during World War 2 and has undertaken 30 other long sea journeys on mailships and cruise ships including the Astor, the Queen Elizabeth 2 and

the Queen Mary 2. “I have been to 83 countries and seen most of the great wonders of this world. The one place I have not been to is the Goudini Spa and I don’t plan going there any time soon,” he chortled. Morris defies his 94 years and while his mobility is not what it used to be he manages to get

When we chatted, Morris was recovering from a heart procedure – a Trans-Aortic Valve Implant. True to form he got himself discharged from hospital within a week and in no time at all he was again up and about. Morris has been married twice,

which he has documented not only highlights of his life but also milestones in the world around him and even whacky incidents that have amused him. And there are many of those as it is a keen sense of humour, a keen intellect and a cheery outlook that continues to steer Morris through life.
