Bishop Lavis Town Centre is a 1.4 ha plot intended for a comprehensive redevelopment scheme, located in a low-density Cape Flats suburb just north of Cape Town International Airport. It enjoys an ideal situation on a BRT feeder route, with the proximity of a cluster of socio-economic and civic uses. The City expects on this site innovative projects that will demonstrate new forms of medium density urban development with high environmental performance.

Besides an integrated community service centre with civic facilities, proposals for redevelopment of this site should include new mixed commercial and higher density housing development around a public square or similar social focal point. There is also an opportunity to relocate the community hall to the sports complex immediately north of the site and Lavis Drive, opening up a further part of the site.
City of Cape Town.
Type of property transfer intended:
Could be a mixed arrangement. Normally full freehold disposal of the asset, but depends on the details of the proposal (eg how new public facilities might be made available). A long-term leasehold arrangement or a combination of freehold/lease could also be considered.
