This open and underutilized surface car park of approximately 1 ha, forming part of the City of Cape Town municipal corporate headquarters precinct, is located right in the centre of Cape Town CBD, Cape Town’s primary urban node, where the highest density of development and widest range of higher order uses and facilities occur. This site has the potential to accommodate considerable high density and mixed use development.

This site is an open surface car park of approximately 1ha, located right in the centre of Cape Town CBD. It forms part of the City of Cape Town municipal corporate head quarters precinct, ie the ‘Civic centre‘, which itself rises to a height of 22 storeys.

The central city CBD is Cape Town‘s primary urban node, where the highest density of development and widest range of higher order uses and facilities occur. The part of the CBD where the Civic Centre is located, known as the ‘Foreshore’, includes the central railway station and is located close to the harbour and major freeways entering the CBD. It is characterised by larger and higher tower block buildings with a wider street grid pattern. The attractiveness of the site is guaranteed by its very good connections to the overall transport network, both from an individual vehicular as well as from a public transit perspective. 



This underutilised open car park space has the potential to accommodate considerable high density and mixed use development in this central location.  Bidder teams should consider the shared expectations for the delivery of carbon-neutral development demonstration projects.
