Located right on the doorstep of the commuter train station in the centre of Athlone CBD, this exciting opportunity site is a stand-alone open surface car park used by staff based at the nearby municipal district office in Aden Avenue.
With Athlone CBD and surrounds targeted for significant future densification and regeneration, this underutilised site has the potential to accommodate high density and mixed use development, benefitting from superior public transit accessibility and a strong existing threshold population.
Bidder teams are given the opportunity to develop ambitious and innovative high density mixed commercial and residential proposals incorporating community or civic elements and demonstrating surrounding public realm improvements.
The City of Cape Town expects on this site projects that will demonstrate new and innovative forms of mixed infill urban development with high environmental performance. In accordance with the objectives of the municipality to appropriately manage the impact of city growth through transit-oriented development, bidders will have to propose the best solutions towards a carbon neutral and more resilient urban development.
