Capitol Commercial Properties was founded in December 2000, when Pieter van der Westhuysen and Pieter-Jozua Erasmus decided to depart from their respective firms and join forces. Their aim: to become the premier commercial property firm in Cape Town’s Northern Suburbs.

Soon after Capitol’s inception, the firm was awarded the sole mandate on the sought-after Tyger Waterfront Development located in Tyger Valley, Bellville. The marketing of this prime land and subsequent sales of commercial properties comprised of retail and office space, was successfully executed.

Capitol took a conscious decision to focus their property brokerage efforts on the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. This has ensured that Capitol is able to give clients an objective and thorough overview of office space availability in the area – whether for leasing or sale. They pride themselves on the fact that they have extensive knowledge on all property vacancies and are abreast of current and future tenant movements in areas such as Bellville, Durbanville and the surrounds.

Since 2006, Capitol Commercial Properties has tracked office vacancies in the Tyger Valley area and this data is used by various publications including the Rode Report, a quarterly report on the South African property market.
