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.

The site is considered suitable for a significant high density mixed commercial and residential development scheme, with business element (with residential units above) orientated along the higher order roads, and the rest of the site taken up by a mix of residential unit types and opportunities, including some (tenure blind) gap / affordable housing. A component of quality public open space (including retention of mature trees where possible) should be incorporated.
