Located at the end of the Mitchell’s Plain railway line, and next to Mnandi Beach resort on the False Bay coastline, this unique opportunity site is located at the southern end of Mitchell’s Plain, a suburb forming part of the greater Cape Flats area in Cape Town. The site comprises a collection of undeveloped land parcels, underutilised and obsolete road and parking infrastructure around Kapteinsklip railway station, some undeveloped open spaces and also naturally vegetated areas. Roughly 25 km south-east of central Cape Town, this locality on the False Bay coastline is earmarked to develop into a new local coastal node of mixed nature and special significance.
Given its unique setting, the site is targeted for significant future mixed-use densification and infill development to strengthen its coastal nodal character, enhance existing coastal facilities and celebrate the valuable environmental qualities and heritage of the area.
Bidder teams are given the opportunity to develop ambitious and innovative medium density mixed-use proposals incorporating community or civic elements and amenities to the benefit of surrounding communities and the future inhabitants of this area.
The City of Cape Town expects on this site projects that will demonstrate new and innovative forms of mixed-use infill urban development with high environmental performance, given its unique location. 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.
