The silo district is home to two hotels: the eclectic Silo Hotel, a luxury 28-room establishment with a penthouse apartment that will set you back more than R100,000/night and a rooftop bar that arguably offers the best views in Cape Town; and the 250-room Radisson Red, a new four-star hotel concept inspired by all things art, music and fashion. The hotel is only the third Radisson Red to open its doors in the world, following a successful launch in Brussels, Belgium, and Minneapolis, in the US.
The Radisson Red concept is aimed at what the Carlson Rezidor hotel group refers to as "an ageless, expressive, tech-savvy crowd".
The silo district also boasts two luxury apartment developments, Silo 2 and 3. Apartments at Silo 3 sold off-plan for upwards of R7m at an average price of R83,000/m². Only one of its 79 apartments launched off-plan about a year ago remains unsold — a penthouse with a price tag of R48m. An ultra-luxury penthouse apartment spanning 400m² was recently sold to a local businessman for R84m, which translates into a selling price of a whopping R210,000/m². That’s believed to be a new record for SA sectional title prices on a rand/m² basis.
