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 have 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, 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. It is fairly bubbling with potential. KWV will also remain as an anchor tenant for the next 7 years.

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 6 250 sqm GLA.

The total redevelopment is scheduled to be completed by March 2021.


This could be your new office address.
