Oasis Life Century City will rise along the water’s edge of the previous Ratanga Junction site.
If you and your children or grandchildren enjoyed the big dipper at the now defunct Ratanga Junction amusement park in years gone by, the new generation retirement complex projected in its place is aimed at today’s golden oldies.
To be launched on site in Century City by the Rabie Property Group, it is an opportunity to retire in a luxury apartment at Oasis Life Century City, with modern conveniences juxtaposed with picturesque natural serenity.
In addition to a central location, entertainment, restaurants and shopping are part of the adjacent and immediate amenities of the new Ratanga Park, Century City.
With beautiful nature and indigenous bird life, it also offers kilometres of running and walking trails and extensive canals on which to canoe. Previously, Oasis Luxury Resort’s 375 apartments sold ahead of completion, an indication of Century City’s potential as a sought-after retirement address.
Residents praise their lifestyle, which many describe as a perfect blend of modern comforts with serenity and easy access to nature. Oasis Life Century City will rise along the water’s edge of the previous Ratanga Junction site as a series of four residential towers forming a bookend to the southern boundary of the newly-designed Ratanga Waterfront precinct.
Choice of location ensured optimum orientation and views facing a large new body of water which will connect to the extensive network of existing canals zigzagging throughout Century City.
Residents will enjoy the lush greenery of gardens around Oasis Life, which meet the banks of the water. Smaller islands and a large new green park will be visible, to include additional habitats for the exceptional bird life already established.
At the towers’ heart, a lifestyle centre will form the core of the retirement estate, with access to a first-class restaurant, games room, gym, undercover heated swimming pool, library and media centre. Primary healthcare and expertly designed apartments add to the modern set-up.
The interior look and feel of the centre and public areas have been designed to deliver a luxurious and personal hotel-like experience. With lifts, elegantly furnished lobbies and carpeted passages, residents will enjoy a superb environment, underpinned by international-standard hospitality.
An entrance lobby, with a dedicated reception and concierge, leads to a double-volume stairwell space, extending to a garden and waterfront. Access to the lower ground floor, which opens onto the gardens, is via an elegant staircase.
The latest technology includes high-speed internet through pre-installed fibre, plus 24-hour security throughout, including access control. Secure residents’ basement parking is available and there are open parking bays for visitors.
Phase one, with construction beginning next year, will consist of 62 luxury apartments ranging between 81m² and 165m² with one-, two- or three-bedroom options.
Each apartment features a north-facing balcony, partly screened for privacy and wind protection. “A fantastic lifestyle is secure for the remainder of a resident’s life.
With an entry age of 60, a modern, active and healthy lifestyle is promoted, which appeals to youngish seniors with a zest for life,” says John Chapman, a director at Rabie. The launch will be held on November 7 at Oasis Luxury Retirement Resort, Century Way, Century City.
