One of the more recent additions to the Rosebank skyline is The Tyrwhitt, an upmarket residential building in the heart of Rosebank – just one block from Rosebank’s shopping malls, pedestrianised precinct and coffee culture. We’ve been working in the Rosebank district for a number of years – so we’ve seen firsthand the changes. It’s one of a few Joburg neighbourhoods that mixes business and leisure in a way that creates a dynamic and walkable district with art galleries, shopping mall, markets and movie theatres on your doorstep.
At Johannesburg In Your Pocket, we watched The Tyrwhitt go up, as at the time we were working from its associated co-working space next door, Perch Flexible Office Space. It’s a prime location. You can walk from here to The Mall, The Firs, and within an extra block, Oxford Parks, or head down the street for Keyes Art Mile.
It’s a few minutes walk from the Gautrain Station so perfect for easy commuting or a car-owning-free lifestyle (which seems almost impossible in Joburg). And taking top spot right now in order of importance the building has a generator on stand-by so the constant threat of load shedding is more of an empty threat. There is also Wi-Fi throughout, and if you do have a car, private underground parking with easy lift access. The building has a reception area – so deliveries are never a hassle even if you are not at home, as well as elegant meeting rooms and a spacious outdoor deck elevated off street level.
The Tyrwhitt has more than 200 luxury apartments ranging in size from approximately 50sq/m to 200sq/m, including one, two and three bedroom units – spacious and airy in a way that's often hard to come by in newer developments – but the penthouse is the jewel in The Tyrwhitt’s crown.
Once inside the building The Tyrwhitt is all about comfort. You'll quickly take to this plush cocoon with awe-inspiring views from the terrace. The apartments are elegantly fitted out with high-end appliances and an understated contemporary design ethos.
The Tyrwhitt’s penthouse suites take up to 260sq/m, are located on the top floor of the 14-story building, and have superb views of Rosebank’s tree-lined streets and the Joburg city skyline. So it was a natural match when we decided to launch this year’s Jacaranda In Your Pocket photo competition – our fifth year.
