If the idea of minimising your environmental footprint by living in a stunning, ultramodern, and eco-friendly lifestyle estate appeals to you, go to Balwin Properties. With developments in Gauteng, Western Cape and KZN, we’re a proudly South African company determined to deliver quality green buildings through world-class innovation.

Last year, Balwin Properties and ABSA announced the ABSA Eco Home Loan, an industry first. Prior to the announcement, Balwin Properties registered over 16,000 units rated as EDGE certified by the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA). The International Finance Corporation confirmed that this was a global first, covering more homes than any single property developer in the world.

The EDGE standard is set at a minimum of 20% reduction across energy consumption, water usage and embodied energy in materials. The following Lifestyle Centres boast a 6-Star GBCSA rating, which recognises world leadership in sustainable building and design.

These Lifestyle Centres feature over 70% recycled content, such as the gym flooring, playground track and timber decking.

Grey water systems are used within the sanitary fittings and currently supply all landscape irrigation. Rainwater is harvested and also used for irrigation.

Electricity is generated via solar panels and, wherever possible, waste material during the construction phase was recycled. For these reasons plus many more, our 6-Star GBCSA green-rated Lifestyle Centres have achieved a Net-Zero Carbon rating.

Remember, EDGE registration provides you with the assurance that, when you choose a Balwin home, you’re minimising your environmental footprint while saving on utility costs over the long term. Go green. Go to Balwin.
