The Club Advocates’ Chambers

A vibrant new base for South Africa’s legal community is being developed in Pretoria.

Sectional title

In a trailblazing move, Atterbury is giving the advocates the option of sectional title ownership of their own offices.

Construction has already started on the prominent new office development at the landmark The Club, with the fourth of five buildings that will ultimately comprise the prestigious precinct. The precinct is already home to 14 400m2 retail, restaurant and office space in Club Retail and Club One. The 5 200m2 Club Two is also under development and will house a Planet Fitness gym and offices.

‘We are pleased to work with Pretoria’s legal community for this innovative project to develop the esteemed new The Club Advocates’ Chambers in Club Three. In addition, the demand-driven development of the 10 000m2 Club Three will also include a medical clinic of around 4 000m2. The Club Advocates’ Chambers will welcome it first clients from February 2018,’ say Atterbury’s Development Manager, Wiehan Strydom.

An advocate of the Pretoria Bar, Ilse Vermaak- Hay is one of the advocates who will move to The Club Advocates’ Chambers. She has been an important part of creating this opportunity for the legal community.

‘We wanted an alternative for chambers outside the CBD that also provided the opportunity for advocates to own their offices. While we found many rental-only options, there were no suitable offices available for purchase. After considering another new development project that came to nothing, Advocate Etienne Coetzee SC approached Atterbury and the idea for The Club Advocates’ Chambers was born,’ says Vermaak-Hay.

The new advocates chambers, with its prime position in Hazelwood, is an excellent opportunity for the legal community and is well positioned to serve the many successful and reputable legal practices nearby.

Good investment opportunity

‘It represents a good investment proposition in a great location with easy access to the High Court in the Pretoria CBD, as well as Brooklyn, Groenkloof, Menlyn and surrounds. It is an excellent environment in which to work and a good area for our clientele to visit. It is an address that makes a positive impression, with quality offices served by generous parking within a sought-after modern mixed-use environment,’ notes Vermaak-Hay.

The new chambers will benefit greatly from their mixed-use environment. Benefits include a better work-life balance for the attorneys and their teams, with The Club’s growing number of retail, medical and health amenities, as well as enjoying working lunches or coffee meetings at a selection of on-site restaurants.
