Cell phone operator Cell C hopes to move into its new 46,000m² campus between the busy Buccleuch Interchange and the Allandale off-ramp on the N1 between Johannesburg and Midrand by the end of 2013.

The site, on Waterfall Business Estate, will include a massive warehouse to accommodate its stock being shipped in and out of the precinct as well as conference facilities; its main repair centre; a hi-tech network control centre; a walk-in customer care centre; design and engineering elements and a staff contingent of around 2,500 people.

It will comprise a ground floor plus three storeys with construction set to begin in about two weeks’ time.

CEO Alan Knott-Craig says the campus will be adjacent to the sprawling multi-billion rand Waterfall Estate with the N1 highway separating the two.

Atterbury Property Developments says the Waterfall Business Estate comprises a 1.6 million square metre mixed-use commercial development, considered to be among the most ambitious yet in South Africa.

Atterbury director Coenie Bezuidenthou says the Cell C development will break ground in July 2012 and will improve road infrastructure in the area. “The development also offers Cell C some 14,000m² of future development potential,” Bezuidenhout said.

A statement added: “Cell C is among a number of prestigious companies who are opting to locate their operations at Waterfall Business Estate.  Altech Group will take occupation of a 4,200m² office building in Woodmead North Office Park in the next few months. A 30,000m² distribution centre for Walmart’s Massbuild and a 8,000m² distribution warehouse for Digistics, which services fast food industry companies like KFC and McDonalds, are currently under construction.”
