20 November 2019 | Web Article Number: ME201917219
PRIVATELY owned company, HOMii Lifestyle, is launching the next phase of its trendy, serviced and secure apartments on one of the oldest streets in Durban CBD, Dr Pixley Kaseme Street next month.
That’s according to Managing Executive Darren de Leur, who said this will be the fifth building in a planned string of HOMii apartment blocks around South Africa.
“Millennials are looking for flexible, safe solutions that allow them to work, live and play in close proximity. Traditional Real Estate solutions don’t cater for that, so we developed a model that adapted to the needs of our guests,” De Leur said.
He added that the new HOMii building would have security access control with facial recognition, 24-hour security and CCTV surveillance.
“Not only that, HOMii’s on-demand model also allows guests to be seamlessly onboarded through a unique; no lease, prepaid stay’ for up to a month at a time, where they can choose from an ecosystem of trendy, furnished, serviced co-living rooms, private apartments or daily suites.
“Co-working, wellness and lifestyle spaces are all stitched together with hotel-type amenities and events. This collectively exists in a building that boasts free Wi-Fi and the ability for one to be mesmerised watching the city’s sunset on the rooftop entertainment area.”
The company already has more than 2000 guests nationally and is set to expand its footprint to 21 apartment blocks, with a string of planned launch events across the country over the next year.
The launch party on 7 December will be hosted by celebrity Bonang Matheba.
“All Durban city slickers between the ages of 21 and 30 are invited to join, they simply have go to the HOMii Facebook page to sign up to attend,” De Leur said.
