Central City Developments

During the next few years, many private and public developments will be completed or under construction.

Convention Towers

Convention Towers The development of the Convention Towers, adjacent to the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), was the first fully new AAA-grade commercial space built in the Central City in nearly 10 years. This R230 million development added 17 500m2 of commercial space to the Central City.

Customs House

Customs House, on the other side of the elevated freeways will soon make way for for the extension of the highly successful Convention Centre. This development could almost double the size of the existing complex and is worth an estimated R1,3 billion. This is a pioneering business model of three spheres of government to generate an additonal R1 billion annual economic spin-off for the Western Cape. The plan includes the construction of the first six-star rated green building in South Africa.

11 Adderley

11 Adderly Street The R345 million upgrading of 11 Adderley provides 28 000 m2 of commercial space, including three floors of retail.

Liberty Life Building

The refurbishing of the Liberty Life building in Long Street at a cost of R80 million upgrades commercial space with ground-floor retail.

The District

Another trend that is emerging is the extension of the high-end commercial sector into Woodstock, as is seen in the completion of The District – a R260 million mixed-use centre, which includes a significant number of parking bays.

The Boulevard

Also in Woodstock, The Boulevard is slated for completion in early 2009. At a projected cost of R700 million, this mixed-use centre will add 38 000m2 of AAA-grade office space, 1 900 parking bays and retail.

Piazza on the Square

The cleverly designed Piazza on the Square links the newly renovated Church Square to Adderley Street and the Company’s Gardens. This R70 million upgrade hosts three floors of retail, commercial and residential space – some of which boast amazing views of the Central City.

The Decks

Around the corner from Greenmarket Square, this innovative development of R120 million clusters retail space, including a creative Jewellery Avenue, additional parking space and some residential units.

Holiday Inn Express

St George’s Mall is the address for Cape Town’s first Holiday Inn Express. This R100 million three-star hotel added 160 rooms to the Central City’s visitor economy.

Taj Palace Hotel

Taj Palace Hotel At the upper end of St George’s Mall, Africa’s first Taj Palace Hotel will soon be one of the Central City’s biggest assets with completion scheduled for mid 2009. Adding 174 luxury rooms to the Central City’s five-star offering, this hotel will also include magnificent apartments.

Cape Coral Hotel

Under construction, this five-star hotel is the first of its kind – a luxury hotel targeting Middle Eastern visitors. Situated on the corner of Wale and Buitengracht streets, the Coral will be adding 140 rooms and suites to the visitor bed pool, some of which are for sale under sectional title.
