Oasis Life Century City


Rabie Property Group’s impressive property portfolio showcases ground-breaking projects that have transformed Cape Town’s urban landscape, fostering vibrant communities where people live, work, play, shop, and retire. This success is rooted in their unique development approach, characterised by meticulous location selection that addresses genuine market needs.

Century City offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and urban convenience – you’ve got the best of both worlds right on your doorstep. Through modern urban planning and a deep understanding of how people live, work and relax, Rabie Property Group has transformed this privately managed 250-hectare precinct into a modern mixed-use and multi-generational smart city. This urban oasis is modern urbanism at its best, promising an unmatched lifestyle tailored for the modern retiree.

Century City is the quintessential destination for a retirement offering, and it’s the unrivalled security, natural beauty and recreational opportunities that position this as an ideal place to retire. Oasis Life Century City immerses residents in the heart of a vibrant, forward-thinking community. The first phase of Oasis Life Century City will comprise high rise apartments equipped with full back power.  A range of ground floor garden units, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments, and penthouses are available and pricing starts from R3 million. These modern homes boast high-quality finishes, fibre-to-the-home connectivity and spectacular views of either Ratanga Park and Table Mountain. 

John Chapman, who has been with the Group for 35 years, and has been instrumental to the development of Century City, explains why he has chosen to retire in this new Oasis Life development. “Personally speaking, Oasis Life Century City provides everything I need, including freedom from home maintenance and delightful dining options. I can lock-up-and go without ever being concerned about my apartment when I’m not home.” This retirement addition to Ratanga Park champions the principles of new urbanism, setting a new standard for modern retirement. The core principle of new urbanism is to create inclusive, sustainable, and vibrant urban spaces that enhance the quality of life for all residents. Oasis Life Century City integrates three essential components — a residential neighbourhood, workplaces, and shopping districts — into a convenient triangle, ensuring that residents have easy access to all their needs right at their doorstep.

Those residing within this walkable suburb will have access to 5 hotels, 13 restaurants, 3 gyms, a conference centre and superb retail environments including Canal Walk Shopping Centre. Residents will benefit from several smart features, including full backup power, advanced broadband infrastructure offering residents high-speed internet and free Wi-Fi hotspots as they walk through the precinct, and security measures using cutting-edge technology, such as access control and onsite CCTV surveillance, emergency response and crime prevention. Century City’s state-of-the-art security system, includes 169 cameras, license plate recognition, facial recognition, dedicated patrols, and a 24/7 manned Century City Service Operations Centre (SOC), providing residents with total peace of mind. Beyond Century City’s overarching security measures, individual developments within this precinct implement their own security arrangements. Residents can also select their own preferred security measures within their units, adding yet another layer of protection. Security is one of the most important criteria for people looking to transition into retirement – especially in South Africa.

Effective management by the Century City Property Owners’ Association (CCPOA) of this urban precinct is achieved through dedicated teams responsible for infrastructure maintenance, traffic control, disaster response and incident management, supported by real-time traffic monitoring. Residents can enjoy well-maintained urban spaces, green areas, shopping convenience, and water-based activities, providing a harmonious and forward-thinking living experience in this walkable neighbourhood.

Thoughtfully designed to seamlessly blend with Century City’s natural beauty while ensuring a secure and enriching lifestyle for its residents, Oasis Life Century City dwellers have full access to the precinct’s features. Ratanga Park is a lush 16-hectare green space developed with an investment exceeding R100 million. The park serves as a pristine green lung for both residents and the public. Throughout the precinct, residents benefit from cycle-friendly avenues and an expansive 8.5-kilometer canal network, providing leisure opportunities such as canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddling and scenic walking paths.

“At Oasis Life Century City, a world of convenience lies within a 15-minute stroll or a leisurely bike ride, connecting you to world-class restaurants, coffee shops, and retail options. This convenient urban lifestyle also provides a safe and secure environment for residents with a double-layered security approach, encompassing both estate security and Century City’s cutting-edge smart city security measures. In essence, residents at Oasis Life Century City don’t just invest in their future, they actively embrace and experience it,” concludes Chapman.
