La Concorde

A new lease on life for historic La Concorde

An architectural grande dame steeped in history is getting a new lease of life in the Cape Winelands town of Paarl, where leading property developers Giflo Group has big plans to revitalise La Concorde, the one-time head office of KWV.

The KWV building, as it is still known, is a landmark in Paarl’s Main road today, but when the site was originally chosen back in the 1950s, it was still part of the farm Concordia, explains Michiel Scharrighuisen, director and co-owner of Giflo Group, which recently purchased the iconic building.

Giflo’s head office has also been based in the building for six years and transitioning from tenants to owners, the group is extremely excited about restoring La Concorde to the former glory of its heyday, preserving its heritage while updating it for a new era. It is bubbling with potential. KWV also remains an anchor tenant.
