Epping at a glance
Epping: Bustling and Booming
Epping is a busy industrial area in Cape Town, that was initially developed in the late 1940’s. Despite slow beginnings, development started booming in the late 50’s. As time went by, Epping continued to flourish, partly due to the completion of the nearby Athlone Power Station. Today, Epping is a popular industrial node with a focus on manufacturing, distribution and storage. The area hosts a number of companies involved in the textile, automotive, logistics, construction and food processing industries. Situated between the R102 and N2, with the M5 running directly through the middle, Epping is in an excellent location. The M5 divides the area into two sectors; Epping 1 and Epping 2. These roads connect Epping to the West Coast and create easy access to the N1, the other national highway.
In Good Company
Epping is managed by the Epping Community Improvement District (ECID) which is a section 21 company. This active organisation is funded by all property owners within Epping; the levy for which is charged by the City of Cape Town. The ECID helps to support investment in Epping and assists in promoting economic growth and development. Not only does it supplement the services provided by the City of Cape Town such as cleaning, security, emergency management and traffic management, but it also promotes the upliftment of distraught business.
Attractions and Amenities
Epping is one of the largest industrial nodes in the greater Cape Town area, situated to the south of Thornton, east of Pinelands and north of Langa. Goodwood boasts the Grand West Casino; a popular entertainment destination. Pinelands is a leafy suburb and popular residential node, a drawcard for employees. Another drawcard is the popular Cape Town Market, one of the most established fresh produce markets in South Africa. There is a lovely foot path around Gunners Circle (which was once used as a race track), which leads to the market. This market is over 50 years old and services over 5500 producers delivering fresh produce to market agents, who in turn sell the fresh produce to over 8000 registered buyers.
There is something for everyone in Epping, with units ranging from 100m2 to 20 000m2. While well established, Epping has a lot of exciting new developments taking place, including the refurbishment of several old locations. Prices for warehouses range from R2.5 million, all the way up to R150 million. For more information contact our Cape Town branch, or email Werner at email@example.com.
