HOSPITALITY: Avenue Hotel To Become Retirement Home
Recent Western Cape Business News
Fish Hoek’s well known Avenue Hotel, which was recently acquired by Zevenwacht Properties, is to be developed into a retirement hotel.
According to Zevenwacht managing director Harold Johnson, the buildings will be comprehensively refurbished to meet the requirements of a retirement complex which will be known as the Avenue Retirement Hotel. Johnson says that despite the number of new retirement developments there is still the need for a competitively priced and professionally operated home which is centrally situated and close to all of Fish Hoek’s amenities.
“The units , which will consist of single and double suites with en suite bathrooms, will be available with life rights giving the owners security of tenure, ”said Johnson. Full health and frail care facilities will be provided on site as will dining and other amenities designed to enhance a leisurely life style in a pleasant and secure environment.
Negotiations are currently underway with professional care companies to operate the Hotel on behalf of Zevenwacht.
Zevenwacht Properties has become a major player in the development of properties in and around Fish Hoek. The company was responsible for the creation of the four star Calders Hotel in Fish Hoek’s nearby Recreation road as well as the new Baracudas restaurant opposite the hotel on the site of the legendry Francois restaurant. Both of these developments have significantly improved the areas in which they are situated and the same positive spin off is expected at the Avenue and its surroundings.
Further afield on the Stellenbosch Wine Route, the company has developed a hotel , retirement village and other amenities on Zevenwacht wine estate. The experience gained on the development of the Lifestyle Estate retirement village on the farm will be of benefit to the development of the Avenue Retirement Hotel and to its future residents, Johnson says.
