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.

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. Apart from superior rail access and being well served by minibus-taxi, Athlone CBD is also easily reached by private motor vehicle via the N2 national highway. Located about 8 km from Cape Town CBD, Athlone is one of the first suburbs constituting the greater Cape Flats area and enjoys easy and quick access to central Cape Town.



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.

Information

Expected program
The site is considered suitable for a significant high density mixed commercial and residential infill development scheme, with business / commercial / community use elements on lower floors and a mix of residential unit types and sizes, including some (tenure-blind) gap / affordable housing, on upper floors.   Being a very busy location, proposals should also demonstrate surrounding public realm improvements.

Site’s owner
City of Cape Town

Plot area
Approximately 3 779m2

Type of property transfer intended
Normally full freehold disposal of the asset (on a market value basis). Depending on the proposal, leasehold rights may also be considered.

Deadline for the submission of the Expression of Interest
Friday 15 May 2020 - 5pm local time in Cape Town (UTC +2)

Language requirements
All the documents of the EOI must be submitted in English.
