Love What You Do And Where You Do It
Category Suburb Information
In today’s working world, we spend a large portion of our time and energy on our careers and businesses. At Sam Harwood Property, our priority is finding clients the perfect homes, but we believe that work space is equally important. That’s one of the reasons our offices are based at Hacienda office suites in Florida Road.
Aside from its incredible location, Hacienda is set in a wonderfully elegant building originally built in the 1930’s, with the front facade and balcony set just above bustling Florida Road. The Spanish style concept and interior design is a stamp of the design-led owners and Landlords, Urban Lime, an innovative commercial property company with a strong focus on regenerating urban areas and communities.
The building incorporates offices of various sizes with shared meeting rooms, a boardroom and a coffee shop on the ground level. There are several businesses in the building, creative and edgy as well as established, resulting in a vibrant, collaborative and professional working environment. Shared facilities are serviced with a central reception function, where everyone is warmly welcomed and pointed in the right direction.
Sam Harwood had no doubts about taking up space for Sam Harwood Property when seeking out an office address; “Hacienda suits our style, flexibility and energy at the office. We are in and out very often viewing homes and meeting new people, so it’s wonderful to have a vibrant and flexible working environment to complement that.”
Florida Road has always been a popular Durban location with its variety of restaurants, meeting spots, apartments and high street retail. In recent years there has been a renewed focus and combined effort to clean up signs of urban deterioration and protect the neighbourhood from decay. The Florida Road UIP along with property owners like Urban Lime, and several other rate payers and community groups in the area, work together to ensure that Florida Road remains a go-to destination for visitors and an investment zone for property buyers and developers.
Through added security measures, links to private patrols and additional cleaning and greening staff, Florida Road remains a pleasure to live, work and play. There are also initiatives which encourage communication and activity such as the growing First Thursday concept which originally started in Cape Town, and is now popular in Durban’s Station Drive as well as Florida Road.
With an office base like Hacienda, in a setting like Florida Road, it’s no wonder Sam Harwood Property is becoming a leading real estate agency in the area.
