Leading property company, Devmark Property Group, has launched its first YUCO co-living development in South Africa.

YUCO will form part of the new Galleria precinct, an ambitious 11,4Ha mixed-use property development located at Tygervalley in the Northern suburbs of Cape Town.


YUCO is an excellent property investment in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town offering a substantial capital growth opportunity.

The Location: The Northern Suburbs’ has experienced enormous property growth in recent years, not least because of the access to Cape Town International Airport, good schools and higher education institutions, shopping centres and a number of wine routes including the Durbanville Wine Valley. Investment fundamentals are underpinned by strong demand and short supply of this type of property in this location.

Co-Living: An innovative co-living solution will provide consistent real returns to property investors, where all the admin is taken care of and managed by the experienced YUCO Management.

Dejane Steyl, Head of Marketing: Devmark Property Group, says: “The Galleria has already attracted both national and regional head offices, as well as an international events company. Its strategic location at the epicentre of Cape Town’s second CBD means that the site benefits from multiple connections, be that roads and services, transit routes, fibre networks or as a hub where people from all spheres of life connect for business, social and retail activities. Part of the location’s allure is the comprehensive live, work, play opportunities with the backdrop of the winelands, higher education institutions and comprehensive amenities in close proximity.”

YUCO is an eclectic community for young professionals, students and corporate travellers. The name YUCO is an acronym derived from your urban co-living space. Accommodation consists of fully furnished studio apartments with luxury amenities. The term co-living refers to a form of coexistence in a space where residents share amenities and communal spaces, which are quintessential to this vibey lifestyle.  Co-living is particularly popular in cities and urban spaces where housing is costly and limited, providing a more affordable and amenity-based lifestyle.

“It predominantly appeals to millennials due to rising property prices. Residents of co-living spaces typically range between the ages of 19 and 40 years, as the lower costs of living suit their lifestyle and they become part of a vibrant and inclusive community.”
