Mouquet Farm is an empty 2.4 ha plot, well connected by roads and public transportation. With the Main Road development corridor being targeted for significant future densification and regeneration, this undeveloped site has the potential to accommodate considerable high density and mixed use development. The City of Cape Town expects projects that will demonstrate new and innovative forms of mixed infill urban development with high environmental performance.

Mouquet Farm is a 2,4 ha plot, ideally located at the important intersection of Kendal Road and Main Road, two major arterial roads in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. Main Road is one of Cape Town‘s two established development corridors, with several public transit trunk routes running its length and with a parallel commuter railway line in close proximity.

With the Main Road development corridor being targeted for significant future densification and regeneration, this undeveloped and underutilised site has the potential to accommodate considerable high density and mixed use development, benefitting from commercial exposure on Main Road, as well as from superior public transit accessibility in this area. 




Bidder teams are given the opportunity to develop ambitious and innovative high density commercial and residential proposals with business elements and incorporating quality public open space elements.

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 limit the impact of city growth, bidders will have to propose the best solutions towards a carbon neutral and more resilient urban development.
