Urban Space concentrates on premium bespoke residential and commercial property development.

Within a relatively short period we have earned a reputation as a developer of secure estates in the most desirable locations within Cape Town's Southern Suburbs.

The real estate adage that the three most important aspects of property are 'location, location and location' remains true, and our ability to locate development opportunities in prime locations - along with the flexibility to adapt designs to create custom built homes that suit our clients' needs - offers a distinct advantage.

Whether you are building or buying, when you entrust your project to Urban Space, you're safe in the knowledge that our understanding of every aspect of secure property development, from acquiring development opportunities to completion, is at your disposal and that your complete satisfaction is our ultimate goal.

What makes Urban Space exceptional is that we do everything in house. Everything from finding locations to drawing up plans to obtaining approvals for sub divisions to designing the architectural direction to construction to guaranteeing that budgets are realistic (and followed!) to ensuring there will be no compromise in the excellence of the end product.
