Jawitz Properties’ latest residential development is located in a prime location that gives investors access to Melrose Arch’s burgeoning live-play-work lifestyle.
Latitude 49 is a 36-unit apartment complex that stands out with its elegant and sophisticated design which, unlike many new developments, offers luxury, location and lifestyle in one. The building has seven unique designs spread across five apartment blocks to ensure that each apartment speaks to the ultimate modern urban way of life.
Located directly across the road from Melrose Arch, the apartments’ positioning is literally a block from the office, a stroll from a coffee date - any destination is a mere block or two away. With its central location, Latitude 49 is one of the most superbly connected developments in Johannesburg North – with quick access to international, national and local transport links: getting to OR Tambo, Pretoria, Joburg City or Sandton is facilitated by easy access to the M1 highway, the Gautrain (Rosebank or Sandton) or the local roads network (Oxford, Rivonia, Jan Smuts, Corlett).
It is also ideally positioned for key cultural, business and shopping destinations including Melrose Arch, Sandton CBD, Rosebank, Hyde Park and Joburg City. Getting your business done is more than ever, accessible and convenient.

Staying true to his vision of clever design and refined sensibility, architect John Radford has made use of expansive glazing, especially on the north sides, to maximise light and views of the adjoining treed suburbs.
Latitude 49 consists of 28 sleek 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and 8 duplex penthouses - two units have their own pools and landscaped terraces, while the remaining six units have the option of a jacuzzi, secure basement parking and a storeroom. The two-storey penthouses, all designed with seamless cohesion and line, unfold onto a dual exposure rooftop terrace garden overlooking Johannesburg’s changing skyline.
With extensive landscaped gardens, individual patios and rooftop terrace gardens flow outward from the interiors. The harmonious transition from inside to the wooden deck underfoot, finds you surrounded by lush gardens – your own natural space in which you can breathe. The outdoor living experience includes a communal pool, on-site change room and adjoining clubhouse surrounded by abundant greenery that recognises the dual need for both privacy and community. The interiors at Latitude 49 are being built with the highest quality finishes and specifications. Buyers have a choice of two bespoke finishing styles by Stephen Rich Interiors – Contemporary or Modern Classic. Both styles feature natural finishes in wood and stone combined with sleek steel and glass materials to create a modern aesthetic of luxurious living.
Latitude 49’s floor space is maximised throughout with 2-bed units at 112m2; 3-bed units at 166m2 and the largest penthouse a massive 452m2, with prices ranging between R3.95m and R12.8m. Living well also means living safely and having complete peace of mind whether at home or away. This lock-up-and-go lifestyle has comprehensive security that includes a uniformed security presence, CCTV surveillance and 24-hour controlled access. Latitude 49 takes living well seriously, from design and lifestyle to privacy and protection.
To date, 20 of the units have already been sold and demand is high. According to Susan Jaffe and Gisele Cuyler at Jawitz Properties Dunkeld, “It’s not often that buyers have access to apartments that are well priced, excellently located and offer great quality. This is truly a unique development that offers superb investment potential for the future”.
