A new lease on life for historic La Concorde
La Concorde is an architectural grande dame steeped in history that is now getting a new lease of life in the Cape Winelands town of Paarl, where Giflo Group have big plans to revitalise 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.
The farm was across the railway line from the premises where the Kooperatiewe Wijnbouwers Vereniging had their first head office, alongside the cellar, laboratory and production facilities in Kohler Street. When the company outgrew that original head office it commissioned a new, bigger building in 1953. La Concorde was completed in 1958 and came to represent the significance of the wine and brandy industry of the Boland.
“As new owners we plan to build on the proud La Concorde heritage”
Giflo’s head office has been based in La Concorde for six years. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to restore La Concorde to the former glory of its heyday, preserving its heritage while updating it for a new era. KWV will remain as an anchor tenant.
La Concorde is situated on a large property of 25 000m² among massive mature oak trees. An imposing front entrance faces the street, and the façade includes three distinct gables designed by the Spanish sculptor Florencio Cuairan, adding a classical feel to the structure.
The building has space for more than 40 tenants in office offerings that range from 17m² to 1 500m², with a total of 6 250m² GLA.
