live by design
Experience the energy of the Mother City from Cape Town’s tallest residential tower. Located on 16 Bree Street, this 36-storey residential project with complementary retail offers spectacular views of the mountain, sea and cityscape.
Neighbouring the iconic Portside building, and bound on Bree, Riebeeck and Mechau Streets, 16 on Bree will greatly enhance the appeal of this burgeoning residential and retail node, already home to many thriving restaurants, elegant cafés and stylish shops. As a resident of this exclusive development, you will be in the heart of Cape Town’s creative hub housing Bree Street’s art galleries and antique shops, designer stores and cultural spots.
16 on Bree is well-placed in Cape Town’s Central Business District, near the city’s financial district and creative hubs. With the high-speed fibre optic connectivity, residents can work from home or access dedicated work spaces - including meeting rooms and hot desks - off the lobby. Demarcated cycle lanes and convenient public transport, Bree Street makes it easy for residents to walk or cycle to their city meetings.
Residents will have views of the sea, mountains and cosmopolitan cityscape from elevated apartments on floors 12 to 36. This chic development is in walking distance of attractions such as the Cape Quarter, V&A Waterfront and Green Point. A short drive will take you to the pristine beaches of the Atlantic Seaboard, historical Constantia, the natural splendour of Kirstenbosch, kitesurfing in Blouberg or the indulgence of the Winelands.
16 on Bree places residents in the heart of hip Bree Street, with its art galleries, antique shops, artisan restaurants and contemporary bars. Bree Street has become a destination in its own right - reflecting the diversity and creativity of Cape Town.
Bree Street already offers regular events such as “First Thursdays”, where people can frequent art galleries and eateries until late, and “Open Streets” where the road is for reserved for pedestrians.

In keeping with the heritage grading of the HHO and Felderman buildings on the site, the development has been designed to include historical elements in the facade. Meanwhile, the street level design will reflect the urban landscape seen elsewhere on Bree Street and the double-volume colonnade along Prestwich Street will be for pedestrian access only. The heritage grading of the existing HHO and Felderman buildings on the site has dictated the design of the façade which has incorporated these heritage elements.
