Legacy Hotels & Resorts and Nedbank have announced plans for a new property, the Leonardo, within walking distance of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the Sandton Convention Centre, Nelson Mandela Square and the Gautrain Station.
Located in Maude Street, The Leonardo forms the first phase of a much larger ensemble of building encompassing a new public square, inclusive of offices, residential and retail functions. The property will offer luxury apartments, penthouse suites and premium-grade offices available for rental.
“The demand for safe and secure apartment accommodation is great, especially in Sandton,” explains Chairman and CEO of Legacy Hotels & Resorts International, Bart Dorrestein.
The Leonardo will offer eight luxury penthouse suites and a three-level, 360-degree-view ‘Leonardo Suite’. A common area will have a crèche, spa, gym and heated swimming pool and a restaurant. There will also be full concierge service, a coffee shop, business and conference centre in the lobby, 24-hour security, housekeeping services on call, an in-house maintenance team and secure parking.
Construction is set to commence early in 2015.
