Westbrook – A Growing Investment

By SuperUser Account on 5/13/2015

As the western edge of Port Elizabeth fast transforms itself into a new destination to live, shop, work and play (complete with a soon-to-be-launched regional super-mall), so the spanking new suburb of Westbrook has firmly set course to deliver a ‘new urban’ vision, the likes of which has never before been experienced in the Nelson Mandela Bay area!


Backed by the experience and expertise of master developers Amdec, (and the company’s 26 years of experience in developing South Africa’s most successful places to live, work, play and learn), the new suburb of Westbrook will comprise 3500 residential homes spread across 9 residential villages.


Each village will provide a wonderful variety of homes and townhouses - plus a retirement lifestyle estate and charming retail village office component, medical centre, ‘town centre’ and an already established private Curro school. The suburb sprawls some 128 hectares comprising 30 hectares of open space which lends itself to the expansive parks, walk ways, bicycle paths and children’s play areas which make this suburb so unique.

Predicted to grow as investors recognise and appreciate the attractive, long-term benefits of this investment, Westbrook offers an unparalleled, local opportunity to live your life in a secure and modern home, set within a beautiful, safe landscape and surrounded by the convenience of the very best in local amenities and services to meet daily needs; this is what Amdec does best.


Kobie Potgieter, renowned Port Elizabeth businesswoman and owner of Remax, says, “We’re extremely proud and honoured to be a part of a development of this magnitude! Westbrook offers a great investment opportunity for young families and those looking for a better, more enjoyable and more secure way of living. What’s more it offers untold economic and social benefits for the greater area.”


As the company behind such visionary projects as the Melrose Arch mixed-use precinct (today valued as some of the most expensive real estate in the country) Amdec are, quite literally, putting their money where there mouths are! A total of R400-million has already been spent on Westbrook infrastructure development, services and construction to date. Progress continues apace - with 9 units already for sale at The Ridge estate.

“We’re intent on fulfilling our promises” says Amdec Development director Cobus Bedeker, “the primary purpose behind the Westbrook offering is to protect the investment made by the purchaser and the safety and wellbeing of their family,” he says. “Added benefits as Westbrook grows will be the convenience factor of its amenities, the health and recreational areas, and the proximity to nearby services.”


Key players on this mega-development provide substantial credibility to the Westbrook offering. Amdec brings the full weight of its expertise in creating innovative spaces that pragmatically embrace the foremost international trends and inspire tomorrow’s lifestyles. Absa Capital are a 25% shareholder in the development, whilst Clifford Oosthuizen, former developer of more than 550 quality homes in Port Elizabeth, under the well-known Smallville brand, has taken up the role of Contract Manager for Amdec.
He’s excited by the tremendous growth potential of the suburb; “Port Elizabeth is long overdue this type development,” he says, “a large- sized real estate offering that possesses tremendous appeal and that will have a significantly positive impact on the city!” He continues, “Existing complexes are fully occupied and extremely sought-after,” says Oosthuizen, “but now with Westbrook, we’re offering something completely unique!”


“The great news for Westbrook investors is that where Amdec have previously created these communities, the capital growth on the investment made has always far outweighed the growth experienced in the surrounding areas,” says Amdec Sales Manager, Steve van Schaik.


“We know that what is built on Westbrook and how it is built has a lasting impact on the people who live there, the wider local community and the landscape for years to come.”
